Letter of Intent 

Uploaded September 1, 2020

A letter of intent (LOI), also referred to as a term sheet, memorandum of understanding, or heads of agreement, is a letter agreement that sets out the principal terms of a transaction.


It starts as your initial good faith agreement confirming that the efforts your DMC is putting forth for a program will be considered in negotiations towards a definitive agreement (i.e., an event service agreement or, less often, a master service agreement).

Waiver of Liability: COVID-19

Uploaded September 1, 2020

This release of liability (also known as a liability waiver) is for DMCs to use when operating or reopening during a pandemic, or other public health emergency involving a significant outbreak of an infectious disease (i.e. COVID-19).

The attendee signs the release of liability to absolve or forgive in advance the DMC of potential claims that the attendee contracted an infectious disease while participating in the event or activity.

Indemnification Provision: COVID-19

Uploaded September 1, 2020

The indemnification provision requires the client to agree to reimburse the DMC and any other released parties (e.g., vendors) from any losses incurred related to the disease due to the attendee participating in an event. Ideally, this provision would be used in addition to the waiver of liability.


If attendees refuse to sign (or clients refuse to have attendees sign) the waiver of liability, this provision should be included in the event service agreement as an additional protection. In doing so, this can help transfer liability to the client if an attendee later files suit against the DMC because they allege to have been exposed or contracted COVID-19 as a result of the program.
