Event Liability Insurance

In many cases, venues will now require you to have your own Public Liability insurance or event insurance to cover possible injury to a member of the public. Event Public Liability insurance or entertainment insurance is essential to provide cover against a member of the public being hurt, or damaging their property, whilst attending your event.

Cancellation & Abandonment Insurance

It is critical for the entertainment industry like event organisers, promoters, producers, artist managers, lighting and sound engineering businesses, venues and many other organisations to have Cancellation and Abandonment Insurance.

Circumstances far beyond your control can result in you having to cancel your event, or postpone, interrupt or relocate it. Meanwhile, airfares, booking fees, hotel accommodation (and much more!) have already been paid for. Cancellation insurance can help protect against your potential losses, even when you are a Not-for-Profit organisation.
