Why Do I Need Event Insurance
When it comes to planning an event, don’t forget to purchase insurance! People make fundraisers, parties, birthdays and celebrations fun and memorable, and Event Insurance provides the peace-of-mind of knowing an event is protected. From securing the venue to protecting the financial well-being of the event organizer, Event Insurance is the first step toward ensuring a successful event. The following information is offered as a snapshot of the coverages provided through the American Specialty Express insurance program. For a complete description of coverages and exclusions, the policies should be read and reviewed in detail. The precise coverage afforded is subject to the terms and conditions of the policies as issued.
What Does Event Liability Insurance Provide?
Event Liability Insurance has two primary purposes. First, it ensures the venue of choice can be secured. Most event venues require a certificate of insurance in order to reserve the venue. With Event Insurance through American Specialty Express, certificates of insurance can be instantly downloaded after the purchase is complete. If “Additional Insured” status is needed, it can be added for no additional premium.
In addition to meeting the venue’s requirements, Event Insurance provides protection when injuries or damages occur at the event. Whether it’s a quinceanera, bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah, charity auction, dinner fundraiser, class reunion or wedding, accidents can happen anytime people gather together. It’s best to plan for flawless festivities but be protected with Event Insurance in case something goes wrong.

What are some examples of when Event Insurance would be used?
1. The birthday party happened just as imagined: great music, fabulous food and the birthday girl was completely surprised! Unfortunately, when the decorations were taken down at the end of the night, the walls and lights had been discolored from the decorations. The venue has the walls painted and lights replaced. The bill totals $7,500 and the contract requires the event host to pay it.
2. The not-for-profit fundraiser consisted of dinner, an auction and a performance by a local band. Many of the guests were dancing when a beverage was spilled on the dance floor causing a guest to fall and break his leg. The injured guest promptly calls a personal injury attorney who demands reimbursement for the client’s medical bills, pain and suffering and lost income totaling over $50,000.
These are just a few examples of when Event Insurance will not only provide peace of mind, but protection when things go wrong!
