Conference Insurance

Most conferences these days have transformed from basic meetings to complex events with a variety of tours, experiences, and mix of keynote speakers. These events have even become a great opportunity for individuals to network for future job opportunities. 

All of these interactions are all based on the assumption that the keynote speakers will show up which is ultimately out of your control. If you fail to hedge yourself from a cancelled speaker, major backlash could severely damage your businesses reputation for future events and individuals may even demand money back - leaving you to eat the costs of the event. 

By partnering with ESP, we can give you the peace of mind you deserve. Our policies can protect you from non-appearance of a key speaker and even other perils such as General Liability, Severe Adverse Weather, Power Blackouts and much more. We offer customizable policies that will cater to your conference's exact needs or there are more value standardized options through our member only SHEL Risk Purchasing Assocation. ESP strives to make your life easier by offering the most comprehensive coverage and outstanding customer service - all for the best price.
