Are you a service provider in the event industry who has had a client cancel or reschedule their event date? Then you will need to sign either a contract addendum, rescheduling contract, or cancellation contract. First, for rescheduling purposes, if you and your clients merely want to amend the event date under your existing contract and keep the remainder of your contract and fees intact, then you will need a contract addendum. Second, also for rescheduling purposes, if you want to keep credit on your clients account but your clients are not sure of when they will reschedule their event, then you will need a rescheduling contract. Third, for cancellation purposes, you will need a cancellation contract to ensure your clients sign off on performance obligations, forfeiting their retainer, and avoiding any future legal issues. TLP has also recently added to this bundle, as of June 4, 2020, another contract addendum template document to use when your clients reschedule for a second time. Use code 'HEARTU' at checkout!
