Comprehensive Art Exhibition Insurance

Protectivity’s Art Exhibition Insurance policy is designed to offer comprehensive protection for one or multi-day art exhibitions. Whether your exhibition will attract fewer than 50 visitors or upwards of 30,000, our policy can cover you.

A lot of planning and work is likely to go into putting together an art exhibition, and last-minute cancellation of the venue or an accident during the exhibition itself may threaten its success.

The policy includes Public Liability, protecting you if you are sued by a third party for injury or damage to property. Optional Equipment Cover is available to protect it against theft and accidental damage.   

You can purchase your policy online in a matter of minutes. Alternatively, you can call one of our expert team members on 01494 887909.

What does Art Exhibition Insurance cover?

There are four broad sections of our policy for art exhibitions, providing you cover in varying ways. Public Liability comes as standard, but each of the remaining three benefits can be removed or altered to suit your needs.

Public Liability

Provides you up to £10 million if a third party is injured or suffers property damage whilst at your event. For example, if someones artwork was damaged and they blamed the event organisers, you could be covered.

Employers' Liability

Whether it is people checking tickets, or staff members providing refreshments, taking out Employers’ Liability is vital to protect yourself if a staff member was injured at work.

Equipment Cover

If there is anything that is owned or the responsibility of you, as the organiser, we can provide cover against loss, damage and theft of such items.

Optional Event Cancellation

If you are hosting an event, having appropriate cancellation cover can protect you if it becomes necessary to cancel or rearrange your event. This applies to policies bought no later than 14 days prior to the event.
