Are Meeting Planners Liable if an Attendee Catches COVID-19?

Legal expert Jonathan Howe on the latest legal risks for meeting professionals.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created plenty of legal issues for the events industry, from grappling with force majeure clauses to negotiating attrition terms that make sense. As face-to-face events slowly begin to resume in some form, one question continues to pop up: Can planners be held liable if an attendee contracts COVID at their event? It’s a tricky matter, and one that was recently addressed by Jonathan Howe, founding partner of Chicago's Howe & Hutton law firm and Northstar Meetings Group's longtime legal expert.
Howe spoke with Loren Edelstein, vice president and content director for Northstar Meetings Group, during Interact Independent Planners, the latest in Northstar’s new series of half-day digital meetings for planners and suppliers. He discussed liability and contract issues and answered questions from the attendees who joined the event. On this episode of Eventful: The Podcast for Meeting Professionals, we are featuring excerpts from that conversation.
