What Types of Events Need Event Liability Insurance?
If you’re holding an event in a location other than your own home, especially if you will be serving alcohol, then you should consider acquiring event liability insurance.
While it wasn’t common to need event insurance, many venues are starting to require insurance — even if you won’t be serving alcohol. These changes are part of a growing trend where venues are looking to divest themselves of responsibility for events and pass it onto the hosts.
Whether you are hosting an event for your business or for friends and family, it’s important to be aware of the risks. Additional occasions that require insurance include any type of event where you’re bringing in food trucks or boothes.
Here are some specific events where you should consider event liability insurance:
- Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties
- Bar Mitzvahs & Bat Mitzvahs
- Charity Runs & Charity Bike Rides
- Food Festivals (e.g. Ribest, Multicultural Festival)
- Stag and Doe Parties
- Trade Shows
- And more
