Event Cancellation

Let's Talk

A specialist approach to event cancellation insurance and claims

Despite the best-laid plans, events can go awry. Though you may not be able to prevent a show-stopping incident, you can protect your financial interests when they happen.

Even if relocation or postponement is possible, when unforeseen circumstances occur – such as venue damage, loss of utilities, bad weather, or non-appearance of key speakers/acts – additional expenses are often incurred, including:

  • Irrecoverable expenses
  • Relocation and other additional expenses
  • Lost profits
  • Advance revenues that may need to be refunded

Complete coverage when the unexpected happens

Event cancellation insurance protects Gross Revenue &/or Costs and Expenses if the event is canceled, postponed, curtailed, relocated, or abandoned due to an insured peril occurring. The policy can extend to protect against:

  • Severe weather conditions (hurricanes, tornados, nor’easters, etc.)
  • Venue Unavailability (fires, floods, power outages, etc.)
  • Acts or threatened Acts of Terrorism
  • Earthquake
  • Wildfire
  • Labor Strikes
  • Civil Unrest
  • Non-Appearance of key speaker/guest
  • Catastrophic non-appearance of attendees
  • National Mourning
