Specialist Insurance for Exhibitions and Trade Shows

Our Event Insurance policy is perfect for anyone organising an exhibition or hosting a trade show (or multiple events) for up to 30,000 attendees. With our policy, you can build cover to suit your needs.

Public Liability of up to £10 million can be included on all policies to protect the organiser against claims that arise due to injury caused to a visitor or member of the public, or damage caused to a third-parties property.

We can also include Cancellation Cover on all policies, providing your exhibition with protection in the event that unforeseen circumstances mean that you are no longer able to operate.

Policies start from as little as £40 and we aim to have even the most complex of proposal quoted for your bespoke insurance policy within two working hours of your form submission.

What Insurance Do Exhibitions and Trade Shows Need?

With any event organiser, there are a number of insurance considerations to be had before your exhibition or trade show.

Public Liability

If an attendee of your event was to get injured due to the negligence of the organisers, there’s a chance they could take legal action. With Public Liability in place, we will take care of the costs associated with defending the event as well as any subsequent financial settlement.

Equipment Cover

You are likely to be using a wide range of equipment in the hosting of your exhibition, regardless of your size. We can add up to £50,000 worth of cover to any policy, covering you for theft, loss or damage to the equipment you use to deliver your event.

Employers' Liability

It’s possible that you will employ members of staff, both paid and voluntary to help deliver your event.  In this case, having Employers’ Liability is a necessity, providing you with protection should an employee be injured and claim negligence on your part.

Cancellation Cover

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

I was really pleased with how my claim was settled. It gave me great confidence that Protectivity covers me when the worst happens.

Fantastic claims handling

With the likelihood of a large number of attendees it’s an unfortunate fact that accidents do happen.

That’s why we like to ensure that when you do have to make a claim, the process is as straightforward as possible. 

Thankfully, the Protectivity customers that have had to make a claim have been extremely pleased at the way that we have handled their troubling situation.
