Events Insurance is one of the most important aspects of running an event, even more-so than finding the right location and have all of the plans in place. Without event insurance, you run the risk of losing out financially in a huge way and losing your reputation in the process. If something should go wrong, a person gets injured, equipment is damaged or the event has to be cancelled and your company is in-line to be sued and have the threat of compensation, this is where insurance cover is vitally important.
In most cases, insuring your event is necessary by law and although it might depend on the type of event, it’s still a good idea to have. If you’re unsure, ask an insurance representative who will have prior knowledge of similar events and to seek their advice on how they can help. It could be any event, from a outdoor fate, a trade show, flea market, concert, festival or sporting event, there will be the potential for something to go wrong or someone could get injured, and that would be your company’s responsibility.
Events Insurance has to be flexible due to the nature and range of different types of events. If there is a festival and there is alcohol being sold, then the risk of damage or injury increases. Many events require an ambulance to be on-site and some insurance companies will have different policies and packages to suit. It’s important to analyse the event yourself and be prepared with many questions for the insurance advisor in order to relay as much information about the event as possible. Of course, you need the insurance in place before it happens and that is why every possible situation needs to be thought of.
The location, the amount of people, the machinery and equipment, the theme of the event and the potential dangers should be thought about so that the insurance company can give a detailed quote. One of their packages will suit your needs, and if it needs tweaking to your specifications, then that shouldn’t add too much to the quote. Remember, the financial strain of court cases and being sued is more difficult than stumping up a relatively low amount of money for events Insurance and that’s why you need to add the cost into the budget for the event. Without it, your reputation, profits and integrity will be in jeopardy – and that is not worth the risk of not having insurance.
