What Insurance Do Conferences and Seminars Need?

With the potential for a large number of people to be attending, the risk for injuries occurring is increased. That’s why we can help you building the correct Conference and Seminar Insurance policy for you.

Public Liability

If an attendee or other third-party were to get injured because of the actions taken by the conference organiser, they could take legal action. Having Public Liability means that in this situation, the costs that come with defending the organiser and any subsequent settlement is handled by your insurance policy.

Equipment Cover

We can add cover to any Conference and Seminar Insurance policy to protect the equipment owned by the organisers against loss, damage and theft. We can provide up to £50,000 worth of cover on every policy, with a limit of £5,000 on each individual item. Cover is also available for equipment left overnight.

Employers' Liability

As well as the speakers and it is likely that you event will employ members of staff. In this case, having Employers’ Liability is a necessity, providing you with protection should a staff member be injured and claim negligence on your part.

Event Cancellation

If you are hiring a venue for your conference it is wise to consider taking out Cancellation Cover on your policy. This means that if you are forced to cancel the event for reasons beyond your control, you are protected for some of your pre-paid costs.
