Your Event Was Just Cancelled…Don’t Worry

No matter how well events are planned and organized, there are many things that can go wrong which can cause the event to be canceled.

Event cancellation insurance provides protection for organizations, event planners, production companies and others that host conventions, plays, concerts, trade, and consumer shows.  Coverage is available for indoor and outdoor events held nearly anywhere in the world. If your event is canceled, you still may have legal and financial obligations. If you are holding a concert, comedy show or another entertainment event, call John Hart today.

Event Cancellation Insurance can cover expenses or lost revenue that you might stand to lose if the event you are managing or promoting is canceled or postponed due to unforeseeable reasons beyond your control.

Insurance coverage can include protection from adverse weather, heavy rain, fire, collapse or destruction of the event site, damage to surrounding venues or infrastructure, disease outbreak resulting in lack of access, power failures, and strikes. Other coverage can include non-appearance of a key speaker or entertainer, failure to vacate the event facility, and physical loss of personal property and door registration receipts.

You have a lot invested in your event, and event insurance is a good way to protect that investment. No matter how much time, energy and money you invest in your events, there may be factors beyond your control that can cause costly cancellations or interruptions.

Risks For The Entertainment Industry

Broadcaster Magazine recently ran an article outlining top risks in the entertainment industry. We thought it might be good to re-visit some of these. Rapid consolidation, expanding markets, emerging business models and growing consumer demand are taking center stage and creating real turmoil in the media and entertainment (M&E) industry, Ernst & Young says.

The article points out many kinds of risk faced by the entertainment industry, but we thought we would focus on only on the top three, as we see them.

Asset protection risks including piracy and digital intellectual property rights.

Our Solution – Errors and Omissions, covers legal liability and defense for the production company against lawsuits alleging unauthorized use of title, format, ideas, characters, plots, plagiarism, unfair competition or piracy. Also, protects for alleged libel, slander, defamation of character or invasion of privacy. This coverage will usually be required by a distributor prior to release of any theatrical or television production.

Inability to control costs.

Our Solution – We have access to many of the top markets which creates competition and keeps your entertainment insurance costs down.

Increase climate toward litigation.

Our Solution – Comprehensive Entertainment Liability Insurance, which protects the production company against claims for Bodily Injury or Property Damage Liability arising out of filming the picture. Coverage includes use of all non-owned vehicles (both on and off camera), including physical damage to such vehicles. this coverage will be required prior to filming on any city or state roadways, or any location sites requiring filming permits.
