Why do Small Events need insurance?
There are probably a few reasons event planning has been named one of the most stressful jobs, and if you’re in the middle of planning one, you know them all too well. Between trying to account for every minute on your run-sheet, and having a second back-up plan if your back-up plan fails, the list of things that could go wrong is endless. No matter how much you plan though, there are some mishaps that no amount of planning can prepare you for. It is therefore important for any business holding events to have adequate insurance for their event. This can help ensure you’re not faced with out-of-pocket costs if unexpected events such as someone slipping and falling leads to a costly lawsuit against your business.

Is insurance a mandatory requirement for events?
While there is no governing body which mandates insurance for events, some of your clients or some event venues may require you to hold Public Liability insurance before commencing work. Regardless of whether it is a requirement, insurance should still be an important consideration if you’re holding an event.
What if I need to make a change to my policy?
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 806 584.
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.
