Attrition clauses: outstanding issues and recommendations for meeting planners [Summary]
MetadataShow full item record
This paper deals with the attrition clauses within hotel group sales agreements, the former of which became popular in the early 1990s. Attrition clauses specify pre-determined liquidated damages that a group (usually a corporation or an association) must pay to the hotel in case the group does not pick up a certain percentage of its room block. Attrition charges may also apply to food and beverage agreements as well as to meeting facilities.
