If your business hosts events, it's a good idea to consider the insurance policies you could benefit from.
If you're in the business of hosting events or conferences, it’s well worth looking into business event insurance to help protect your financial interests. Even if you’re just planning a one-off event, insurance could still be vital to have in place.
What is event insurance?
Events insurance is not strictly an insurance policy in itself, but rather an umbrella term which describes the numerous types of cover a business may need when hosting any kind of event - be that a one-off business conference, a regular industry meeting or even a music festival.
There’s a good chance that your standard business insurance policy would not cover you for any unexpected incidents occurring at an event. This is usually because an event brings with it a higher level of risk, and therefore a higher chance that you would need to claim on your insurance. As such, it's likely you’ll need additional insurance to account for the added risk.
The types of event insurance that you need will depend upon aspects such as the type of event you’re hosting, the number of people attending and the level of cover you'd like - for instance, are you looking for insurance to cover a one-off event, or several events spanning across an extended period of time?
No matter the type and size of event you’re hosting, as a bare minimum you may want to consider taking out the following policies:
There are also a number of additional covers that could be beneficial for your business to have in place for an event. These include:
How much cover do I need?
Again, the extent of cover that you need will depend on the type of event you are hosting. There are a number of factors which could influence the extent of cover that you choose to take out, including:
The above list isn’t completely exhaustive – there could a number of other factors that influence the scope of cover that you require for your event. It’s worth remembering that the extent of cover that you take out will also have a direct influence on your event insurance cost – as typically, the more risk you want covering, the higher the cost. For example, your service could introduce additional risk to your customers in an event setting - as such, you can expect your professional indemnity insurance cost to rise.
