How does business insurance protect event planners?

Our event planner insurance packages are designed to protect your business from a variety of risks and help you save money to grow your business. You’ll be protected from financial losses related to:

Damage to someone’s property

One of your subcontractors accidentally cracks a large window at an event space. The general liability coverage in your insurance package would help pay for a replacement.

Accidents that hurt someone

A client slips and falls on the front steps when arriving at your office. Your general event planner liability insurance coverage would also come into play here by helping to pay for medical costs and legal fees.

Professional mistakes 

A client claims they had to pay extra catering fees because you added incorrect information to the service agreement. Professional liability insurance helps you defend yourself if you’re accused of making a mistake that causes someone to lose money. 

Workplace injuries 

You throw out your lower back while helping to set up tables for a party and you have to take off two weeks during peak season to recover. Workers’ compensation insurance with business owner’s coverage can help cover medical bills and lost wages. Workers’ comp is usually required by law if you have employees. 

Injuries and damage involving your business vehicles

Your car slides on a slippery road and hits a parked car. Commercial auto insurance will help pay for the repairs. This coverage is also usually required by law for business-owned vehicles. 

Damage to your own property

A tree falls over and damages the roof of your office. Commercial property insurance can help with replacement or repair costs if your owned or leased property is damaged due to a covered event, such as a burst water pipe, fire, tornado or vandalism.
