To Sue or Not to Sue: A Case of Room Poaching

Presenters: Laurie Nickson, CMP, President, MiSGMP; Director of Professional Programs, Michigan AEYC and Specialist, Office of Great Start, MI Dept. of Education; with MiSGMP members as the lawyers, plaintiff, defendant, and witnesses

A simulated court case with Judge Laurie presiding. Hear about the issues from the perspectives of the plaintiff and the defendant including the rationale, reasons and impact of room block poaching. Room block poaching is a practice by businesses that actively seek to recruit or divert event attendees away from officially contracted room blocks at hotels and into other hotel bookings. Participants will learn about techniques used by room poachers to approach attendees; explore the impact room poaching can have on current and future events and contracts; and gain tips to combat piracy and protect room blocks, customer relationships, and their brand. Participants will serve as jurors, deliberating and determining the verdict!
