Event Liability Insurance

Because unexpected catastrophic situations arise

Special event liability insurance provides coverage for third-party bodily injury and property damage that may arise out of an event. Coverage can be provided on a short-term basis for event organizers or exhibitors, or it can be provided on an annual basis for event / meeting planners and other professionals.

Summary of Coverage

Liquor liability provides coverage for potential claims that may arise out of the serving of alcohol at an event. Our standard GL policy provides host liquor insurance, which applies when an insured is not in the business of selling, serving or distributing liquor.

NOHA (Non-owned / hired auto)

Inland Marine provides coverage for the replacement value of rented equipment by the insured if damage were to occur while under the insured's control.

Excess spectator / participant / volunteer medical coverage provides coverage when a spectator / participant / volunteer injures themselves at an event and needs only their medical expenses covered. The policy acts as an excess policy over a person’s primary insurance but acts as primary insurance if no other coverage is in place.

Additional insured certificates are available for a person or an organization that has a financial interest or liability at stake for your event.

For film / commercial shoots we can offer GL coverage up to $10 million in limits; negative film; faulty stock; props, sets and wardrobe; miscellaneous equipment; extra expense up to $1 million; third-party property damage; and money and securities.
