liability insurance for live event at hotel
on Mar 15, 2014 at 7:08:07 pm

Hi!
I am video recording a live seminar at a hotel in April. Because the presenter will be using me, the hotel is asking that I provide $2,000,000 worth of liability insurance.

Does anyone know of a insurance company that specializes in live events?

Thanks for your help!

All the best, James

Hi James,

You can actually purchase insurance for a single event, although I'm not really familiar with that kind of coverage, it's usually worth a few months of standard coverage.

If you are doing events or working with the public on a regular basis, you should have liability insurance, a person tripping on a cable could put you out of business.

In most cases, you'll have to go through a broker. You can call an insurer and ask for a broker in your area.

A few companies we've been with. Allied,The Hartford, IPFS.

Good luck!

Not just for live events. We get asked for our certificate of insurance all the time by property managers, hospitals and equipment rental houses.

In addition to insurance, gaffer tape and sandbags are essential when working in public spaces.

Good luck
