Events may need to be cancelled, postponed or abandoned for all sorts of reasons and this can result in irrecoverable expense or loss of profit. Something going wrong at a conference you’ve organised could result in a claim being made against you and many venues require organisers to hold public liability insurance to use their venue.

If you’re organising an exhibition or trade fair, planning for the unexpected could mean the difference between making a profit and making a loss.

As an exhibitor you’ll no doubt invest significant time and money to ensure you make an impact.  Not only is it highly frustrating if your plans are scuppered by unforeseen circumstances such as illness or a cancellation, your investment can be lost too.

Even the best laid plans can be run off course. If your business or charity is holding a special event, we can tailor our products to meet your individual needs.

Event organisers involved in business and incentive travel need straightforward and high-quality travel insurance they can offer to clients with confidence. We provide bespoke cover for corporate buyers and business travellers.

Many venues require organisers to hold public liability insurance. You could face legal claims for accidental injury to attendees or for damage to the venue or a delegate’s property that you’ll want to be protected from.

Charity event insurance covers a range of fundraising events, from the small and local, to the huge and international - ensuring your organisation is protected.
