Award Show Insurance

After months of planning and coordinating your award show, you are ready for the big day. All speakers have agreed on their parts and terms have been agreed upon with the musical performers. An hour before the event starts, you get word that your keynote speaker fell ill and won't be able to make the event. What are you suppose to do?

These are the kinds of situations that ESP Specialty was built to protect. By partnering with us, we can create a policy that safeguards your event from unexpected perils such as General Liability, Non-Appearance of Key Speakers, Venue Unavailability, Power Blackouts, and much more. If you choose to go with one of our customizable solutions, we can cater the limit amounts and coverages given to the exact specifications of your event. We also offer a more standardized option through our member only SHEL Risk Purchasing Assocation which significantly drives down prices to our clients. The unexpected isn't so uncertain with ESP. Our goal is to offer the more comprehensive insurance solutions for the lowest price - all while maintaining our highest customer service standards.
