Special Event Insurance
Special events like weddings, baby showers, and graduations take money, time and energy. If everything goes according to plan, an event is successful. However, unexpected incidents can happen, including no-show vendors, extreme weather and special guests who must cancel. Unforeseen circumstances can mean event postponements and cancellations, not to mention financial damage.
What Is Special Event Coverage?
Regrettably, insurance is often overlooked during planning. Special event insurance is a unique coverage that can provide financial protection and peace of mind if an event must be canceled or postponed. Event planners can gain great comfort knowing they are financially safeguarded with special event insurance if their plans change.
Whether planning a community festival, trade show, wedding celebration or other special event, special event coverage can offer several levels of protection, including:
- Event cancellation or postponement—If you need to postpone or cancel your event, this coverage may help reimburse you for any nonrefundable deposits and other fees up to your policy’s coverage limit. It may also help cover the cost of refunding guests’ ticket sales.
- Event liability—Special event insurance can help cover numerous liability risks that may occur during a special event, such as property damage or bodily injuries to guests for which you’re found responsible.
- Additional or special coverages—Many special event insurance policies may provide coverage for additional items. For example, a policy may include wedding insurance or coverage against damage or theft for a dress or tuxedo, gifts, photographs or other special items.
It’s important to note that some venues may require a business to carry special event insurance. We can help you with the coverage you may need for your next special event to ensure you’re adequately protected.
