Not Legal Advice. The DMCC does not provide legal advice. The document is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney. The event service agreement is used between the DMC and its client to detail, among other things, what services are to be provided, when they are to be provided, their respective costs, and the responsibilities of each party to the contract.
The language found within this document is intended to address a matter that arose between a DMC and a potential vendor. In sum, the vendor alleged that a legal contract existed between the DMC and the vendor simply based on the DMC's interest (i.e., request for proposal, communications) in securing the vendor's goods and/or services for a prospective program that ultimately never came to fruition. In an effort to reduce the chances that a situation like this arises within your DMC, please consider the disclaimer langauage found within this document. This language may be placed in a DMC's request for proposal, in the signature line of email communications with a vendor, etc.
