Contract and Event Management

1.1 The main characteristics of the contract and Event catering sectors.

In the UK catering market, contract caterers are the key players and they are expert operators who are destined to take charge of the catering amenities for a whole variety of organisations.
Likewise, growth in the recent years has been through the food service market as it has developed.
The UK’s contract catering sector is subjugated by international operators, for instance; Sodexho, Aramark, Compass etc...
Bearing in mind this causes rivalry between these companies which therefore creates competition.
Furthermore, in order for a small sized food and drink business to proceed and get in the market they must therefore find a way to work alongside those that are more highly levelled, specialised and experienced for catering wholesales or those that already serve to larger well known companies.

The Essential Elements of a Contract and the Applicable Remedies in the Event of a Breach.

...Business I. The essential elements of a contract and the applicable remedies in the event of a breach. Four Essential Elements of a Contract An agreement must contain four essential elements to be regarded as a contract. If any one of them is missing, the agreement will not be legally binding. a. Offer There must be a definite, clearly stated offer to do something. For example: A quotation by sub-contractor to the main contractor and an offer to lease. An offer does not include ball park estimates, requests for proposals, expressions of interest, or letters of intent. An offer will lapse: * when the time for acceptance expires * if the offer is withdrawn before it is accepted * After a reasonable time in the circumstances (generally the greater the value of the contract, the longer the life of the offer). Invitation to treatAn invitation to treat is a mere declaration of willingness to enter into negotiations; it is not an offer, and cannot be accepted so as to form a binding contract. An agreement is not created if there is an acceptance of the invitation to treat.An invitation to treat is part of the preliminaries of negotiation, whereas an offer is legally binding once accepted, subject to compliance with the terms of the offer. For example: Invitations to treat are advertisements, price lists, circulars and catalogues. | b. Acceptance Only what is offered can be accepted. This means that the offer must be accepted exactly as offered...

...“…English law gives relief to one who, without independent advice, enters into a contract upon terms which are very unfair or transfer property for a consideration which is grossly inadequate, when his bargaining power is grievously impaired by reason of his own needs or desires, or by his own ignorance or infirmity, coupled with undue influence or pressure brought to bear on him by or for the benefit of the others.”[1] INTRODUCTION The laws in contract must make sure that the parties which dealing must have freedom of contract which it means where the consent of a contracting party has been obtained entered into freely and voluntary. But sometimes the contracting parties entered into contract with some form of pressure which the law regards as improper, and for this reason the victim of such pressure may be entitled to relief. The victim of such pressure may be entitled to relief under the common law of duress and under the equitable rules of undue influence, although in recent years it attempt to introduce into common law a doctrine of inequality of bargaining power. Duress is common law concept based on illegitimate threat made to contracting party. Undue influence developed in equity to deal with situations where there was improper pressure, without any necessarily specific threat. [2] A victim such a pressure may be entitled to relief and the contract will be voidable. Further, certain special statutory provision protected vulnerable parties subject to contract...

...Betty v. Art Issue: Was there a valid contract between Betty and Art? Formation For there to be a contract, there must be an offer, acceptance and consideration. Offer Issue: Whether there was a valid offer between Betty and Art? Under the restatement §24, an offer is the manifestation of willingness to enter into a bargain, so made as to justify another person in understanding that his/her assent to that bargain is invited and will conclude it. In determining whether there is a valid offer, courts apply objective test which applies the reasonable person standard. Betty asked Art “on what terms he would build a barn on her property”, which created a manifestation of willingness to enter into a bargain with Art. The facts also show that Art responded what was needed to build a barn , “$100 per square foot, and Betty agreed with the terms "OK, if you guarantee January 1, 2005 completion”. Those exchange of statements provides a clear manifestation of willingness to enter into a bargain, where her assent to that bargain is invited and will conclude it. Art can argue that the exchange was more of an informational exchange of words and an invitation to enter into an agreement instead of an actual offer. When he stated that he had never built a bar for hire and continued to discuss what he would charge Betty, one could argue that the figures being discussed were all hypothetical. To Art’s defense, he stated that he has never build a bar for hire...

Giving that Les is up to date with his payments and has complied with all parts of the policy then the Xexon Ltd would need to provide written explanation as to why they are refusing to pay failure to provide a written explanation would be a breach of contract as insurers have the duty of good faith to their policyholders. If that was the case Beth and Les would have grounds to seek compensation. Beth and Les would need to call one of the complaint lines, under Australian law an insurance company should have two in place. One would be internal and the other would be an external. The insurer would need to pay interest on any payment which has been delayed under the Insurance Contracts Act 3.

... trainees of police and national security academies from all over Malaysia. The next component of event design is theme and program design.
