Insurance for every special occasion

Whether you are arranging a sporting event, a staff conference, or an exhibition, you need to make sure you have the right insurance in place that protects you financially in case anything goes wrong.

We can arrange insurance for your event that covers you and your attendees, and the staff and volunteers involved in running the event. You may also want to insure against any non-refundable expenses you incur if your event gets cancelled due to bad weather or some other unforeseen occurrence such as national mourning. Finally, cover can also be included for any assets you are responsible for such as buildings, contents and equipment.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need insurance for my event?

If you are running an event such as an exhibition or festival there’s a good chance that you’ve questioned what would happen if something were to go wrong. For example, what would the impact be if one of the attendees became injured because of something that happened at the event?

 

Without the correct insurance in place, unforeseen circumstances could seriously threaten your livelihood and the future of your business. That’s why arranging your special events insurance through us will provide you with the peace of mind you need for your event to go smoothly.

Why do I need Public Liability insurance for my event?

If something happens at your event that causes accidental injury to an attendee or a member of the public or causes damage to their property, they might be able to make a claim against you for compensation.

A special events insurance can include cover for public liability which will cover both the compensation payments and legal costs, protecting you from potential financial difficulties in the event of a claim being made against you, that could come from an attendee to your event, a customer, supplier, or even a passer-by.

What is Employer’s Liability insurance and do I need it for my event?

If you employ someone to work for you then by law, you must take out Employer’s Liability insurance. Failure to have adequate cover in force could result in your business being fined. For further details about Employer’s Liability insurance being legally required, please refer to the UK Government website (note that Clear is not responsible for the content of external websites):

I arrange events throughout the year, can I buy insurance that covers all of them?

Yes, special events insurance policies can be arranged to cover either a one-off event or a series of events.

Can I insure against cancellation of my event due to bad weather?

Yes, with a special events insurance you can insure against financial loss caused by the cancellation disruption or abandonment of your event or needing to reschedule the event due to bad weather, non-attendance of a key speaker or performer, or a period of national mourning.
