Organising an event of any scale is no small task

If you are Organising an Event, it requires you to spend time and energy in abundance. If the event is meant for a large audience, then the job becomes even more difficult.

However, the part of the job that actually pinches you is the part where you are subjected to financial losses for your event which are beyond your control.

Therefore, we would suggest that you seriously consider an Event Organiser Insurance policy. This would cover the event that you are organising.

The cost of our Event Organiser Insurance policy is kept as low as possible. Also the task of obtaining the policy is fast and simple. It makes sense to protect yourself from unforeseen events.

We are not concerned with the magnitude of your event and can cater for both large and small scale events. Whether you are organising a cultural fair, an exhibition, a club meeting, a static show, a musical or concert. We will be happy to insure you and your event.

Public liability is the main part of our event organiser insurance policy. In case of an accident where there is bodily harm to those attending the event. We will cover your legal liability subject to the levels of cover that you select. This would also apply to any damage to other people’s property.

We can also provide the Event Employers Liability Insurance with an Indemnity level of £10,000,000. This protects your legal liability in respect of compensation. Together with claimants costs and expenses for accidental bodily injury to anyone you employ at an event. This  includes temporary staff, volunteers, helpers, whether paid or unpaid.

In addition, there can be damage to your own property during transportation or other similar situations. This can also be insured and is available as an option with our Event Insurance policy.


Tips and Advice

Organising events is a task that requires a lot of patience and efforts. You will spend a lot of time on the differences of your event. Also other relevant details to makes sure that everything is correct.

To help you further improve your event, we have certain tips and advice that we hope will come in handy. These event tips and advice have been found to be helpful in previous events. Together with engagements that others have organised. So, it makes sense to make use of something that has been tried and tested.

The most important thing is to treat all your attendees with warm affection and respect. Give them all some amount of personalized attention. This will make sure that they don’t feel left out of your event. To achieve this, you need to arrive at the venue well before the stipulated time. Also keep moving around constantly so as not to miss out anything.

The next thing on the agenda is to test all your equipment. Do this before using them on the day of the event.

This helps you to replace any faulty equipment to prevent any embarrassment during the event. Inform all your attendees the time and venue of the event well in advance. This way they can make the necessary arrangements to arrive on time.

You should also create a budget for your event and try to stick to that. If the budget increases by a substantial amount then make sure that you know why this happened. This will help you keep a tab on any unnecessary expenses.

But one of the most important aspects of organising any event is to expect the unexpected. You can make the most elaborate arrangements. Do all the necessary preparations. And yet factors can definitely play spoilsport at your event. Factors like adverse weather conditions or your performer falling sick.

These are issues that are beyond your control. So you need to safeguard yourself against such unanticipated incidents. It is for this reason you should consider our event insurance policy.

This policy will cover your losses and expenses in case there is a public liability claim or an employer’s liability claim.

Further options are available. These can include cover for property damage that occurs during the event or during transportation. Marquees, money and much more.

The above tips and advice are true for events of all sizes. So, whether you are organising a small family party or a large cultural extravaganza. Getting the basics right always helps. Also it is important to make sure that you have things in place for unexpected problems. They have a tendency to crop up at odd times. So follow the above steps and make your event a grand success.
