Event Liability & Insurance

A special event can take a significant amount of time and money to plan, including selecting vendors and securing the venue. However, there is always a chance that something unexpected could happen. Special event insurance is designed with situations such as these in mind.

Some venues may require event organizers to have event liability coverage. Many venues have their own liability insurance. So be sure to check with your venue, as well as your vendors, to see what types of situations may and may not be covered by their insurance. This can help determine whether your own event liability policy may help fill any gaps in coverage. If an event will be held at your home, review your homeowners policy’s liability coverage to see what is included in your coverage. You may want to purchase special event coverage beyond what your homeowners policy includes.

In addition to checking with vendors, the venue and your own homeowners policy about applicable liability coverage, you may have some coverage through credit cards or warranties. Be sure to contact credit card companies and review any existing warranties to see if they provide liability coverage.
