Insurance for conferences

If you’re planning a conference, we can help you prepare for the unexpected. Whether that’s losses resulting from cancellation, damage to property or injured attendees, we offer the cover to put your mind at ease.

Cover tailored to your needs

No event is too small or too big – we can cover a one-off breakfast meeting or a global convention programme with thousands of delegates. We can also provide annual cover if you’re managing a programme of multiple events.

We offer a flexible portfolio of key insurances including event cancellation and disruption cover, property cover and liability, that can be tailored to meet the precise needs of your event.
