What is Event Insurance ??

Special Event Liability & Property Damage Insurance is a specialty insurance policy designed to indemnify you (the insured) from certain types of claims arising from accidents taking place during a covered event, (such as a wedding).  It offers you protection from damage to the facility caused by a guest or vendor, and bodily injury to guests you are found liable for during the event.
