No matter how prepared or well organised are, circumstances can change rapidly and you can be hit with unexpected challenges. At Hiscox we have over 35 years’ experience insuring UK and international events of all shapes and sizes. We are constantly shaping our cover to ensure it remains adaptable and protects you if things don’t go to plan.
Having the right cover in place as early as possible, from when you start to incur costs like venue deposits, can help to protect your event from unforeseen circumstances that could leave your reputation tarnished or impact your business revenue.
Hiscox Event Insurance can provide peace of mind before and during your event, leaving you to concentrate on delivering great content and memorable experiences.
Hiscox can help protect:
Your Budget: any costs and expenses, as well as your profit
Event disruption cover can help you deliver your event, protecting costs, expenses and profit. Cancelling or cutting an event short is every organiser’s worst nightmare. Whilst there will always be practical measures you can take to reduce the impact, circumstances could arise that are beyond your control; from challenges with the venue and utility services, to ensuring speakers arrive to deliver content, we can provide cover for additional costs involved to help ensure your event goes ahead should disaster strike!
Your Property: protecting both your own and any hired equipment
Some property losses might not be covered by your existing personal or business insurance, such as equipment damaged in transit, or stolen from the venue. We can cover both your business property and property you may be legally liable for, such as hired marquees or audio visual equipment.
Your People: any staff, and volunteers, as well as speakers and attendees
From the organising team and speakers, to your delegates and visitors, looking after your people can make or break an event. Core covers include public liability insurance which is often required by venues and protects you against claims made by attendees or damage to third-party property, and employers’ liability protecting those working at the event. We can also include enhanced cover for your organising team, such as personal accident and travel cover as well as key person non-appearance to ensure the speakers and content can be delivered at your event.
Your Reputation: making sure your reputation remains untarnished should things not go to plan
We can provide crisis containment cover for costs using the services of our chosen public relations experts to limit the PR impact of an incident or having to change the event.
