What is Special Event Insurance?

Event insurance is designed to help protect an insured’s investment in certain occasions. This ranges from weddings, birthday parties, trade shows, concerts, and other special events. Specifically, special event insurance is a type of liability coverage that applies to claims made by third parties for bodily injury or property damage that occurs during an event. This type of coverage must be purchased before an event takes place and is relatively inexpensive. Compared to the financial burden you can put on your shoulders without insurance if things don’t go as planned, paying the small cost of coverage is a no-brainer.  What Could Go Wrong? In short, anything and everything could go wrong when it comes to running an event so being protected is important.
