Event insurance is a necessity for event planners looking to keep themselves and their clients protected. Event liability insurance protects your client if someone or something causes property damage to the venue or someone is injured at their event.
Each year, Markel Insurance sees numerous liability claims for things like damage to reception hall furnishings such as couches, mirrors, coffee tables – even toilets and landscaping. Markel also sees guest injury claims when someone slips, falls, and gets injured at the event venue.
