Event Cancellation

Protection for those unforeseen events

A high profile event or marketing campaign can help you grow your business. Yet if something goes wrong, you may pay a high price. For example your event could be cancelled or postponed due to weather, national mourning or if the celebrity you booked to promote your event isn't able to appear. Whether you are an event organiser, broadcaster, sponsor, brand, exhibitor or even a private individual, contingency insurance protects your costs, expenses and revenues if the unforeseen should happen.

  • Maximize your event or promotion with minimum fixed cost
