Why do Events need insurance?
Perfectly organised seating and speakers and performers who segue to each other in the most natural and smooth way – in a large event, the only one who can truly understand the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes are probably other event planners. However, despite your perfectionism when it comes to event planning, there are some mishaps that you can’t plan for. It is therefore important when holding an event that you have appropriate insurance in place if disaster does strike.
Organising an event of less than 2,000 attendees?

Although many venues hold their own Public Liability insurance, they may still require that you hold your own policy prior to allowing you to hire their venue.
Venue and Equipment Damage
If the venue or any of its equipment are damaged due to your negligence in running the event, this may also be covered under a Public Liability policy.1
If you have concerns that your event could be affected by unpredictable weather conditions, Aon may be able to arrange cover for the financial loss suffered. 1
Cancellation, abandonment or non-appearance
If your event was cancelled, abandoned, or a performer didn’t arrive you would incur costs - we may be able to arrange insurance so your financial loss is covered.1
Equipment Insurance is therefore available as an optional cover. The equipment insurance Aon arrange is applicable worldwide (unless otherwise stated in your schedule) and importantly, covers equipment in transit, during use and in storage. The policy can cover equipment used for Sound & Lighting, Audio-Visual, Entertainment and Musical Equipment.1
A key part of this policy is Business Interruption, which can provide protection for lost revenue in the event your business is unable to operate as usual due to an insured peril.
Business Insurance is made up of a number of cover sections, and you can choose the sections that relate to your business. Cover is also available for damage to money (if you keep cash on premises), portable contents such as mobile phones and laptops, and Public Liability.
It is important to keep your policy up to date with the changing shape of your work and also to keep your business and personal information up to date in the event of a claim.
Should your business circumstances have changed, for example you have changed the services that you offer and you are not sure if your existing insurance covers it anymore, then you can always call one of our experienced friendly brokers to discuss on 1800 810 282.
How do I renew my policy?
Your renewal offer will be sent to you via your elected email address. Approximately 30 days before your renewal date you will receive a renewal email and schedule from Aon. It is important at this stage to review the details of our offer carefully (remember pricing and coverage levels may have changed so it is important to review). If you are happy with the offer and wish to accept there is nothing more for you to do your policy will automatically renew on the expiry date of your previous policy and you will receive an invoice via your elected email. It is important that you pay this invoice by the date specified on your invoice to ensure you are covered, if you do not pay your invoice before the start date your new policy, your cover may lapse.
