Weddings should be a time of joy and celebration. If you host weddings and other special events, do not let the prospect of liability claims or property damage dampen the event. Insurance for special events protects you and your property from the costs of liability claims and property damage, ensuring you can afford to continue hosting events.
Special event insurance can be valuable for many facilities that host private events and special occasions. Special event insurance can cover a wide variety of claims, protecting from property damage, general liability, and liquor liability. Do not let your facility get caught off guard with no protection in place.
