In-person gatherings are increasing in popularity after over two years of virtual events necessitated by the pandemic. Many businesses are preparing to hold client appreciation nights, staff parties, fundraisers, and other events in 2022. If you’re dusting off your business’s event plans this year, it’s critical to think about protecting your guests and yourself as the event host.

Whether it’s an event held for a select, private group of guests or one that’s open to the public, the event host is responsible for the protection and safety of both the attendees and the property. Many businesses assume that they’ll be adequately insured through their venue’s insurance or their business’s existing liability insurance. Still, these coverages are often not sufficient for the unique exposures of an event. Many event venues offer limited coverage—or no coverage at all—to their clients. With catering, décor, and other exciting details to consider, it can be easy to forget about making sure you have liability coverage for your event.

Choosing the right coverage for your business’s special event

When hosting an event, it’s essential to make sure that, you protect yourself and your business through Commercial General Liability insurance specifically for the event. This type of insurance protects you from loss if a guest suffers an injury during your event and provides coverage for any potential damage to the venue’s property. No matter how well you know your guests, accidents happen, and securing the right special events liability coverage provides peace of mind so that you can focus on perfecting a fun, memorable event experience for your guests.
