Event insurance is your backup plan for the unforeseen

Does your event plan include preparations for the unexpected–not only during the event but before and after, too?

With our liability and cancellation coverages, we can tailor your policy to cover the specific needs of your event. So not only can we give you peace of mind, we can also save you some serious money!

Event liability? Event cancellation? What kind of coverage do I need for my event?

Event liability covers damages you may be held responsible for such as venue damage or personal injury to a guest and, additionally, host liquor liability.

Event cancellation covers loss of deposits and non-reimbursable amounts if you must postpone or cancel due to unforeseen circumstances such as vendor bankruptcy, extreme weather, and more.

Accidents happen and when they do, we are here to help. Learn about our upfront claims process and how you can help.
