The purpose of event cancellation insurance is to guarantee the organization of an event against any pecuniary loss, linked to the abandonment or total or partial cancellation of the event regardless of the will of the organizers. Events are by nature an unpredictable industry. Whether it is a concert, a festival, a sporting event or an event, each event can be postponed or canceled due to many unforeseen events.
Importance of event cancellation insurance face to the unpredictable
Event cancellation insurance is essential in the events world. It covers industry professionals against a multitude of different threats: bad weather, unavailability of a key player, unusable decor or damaged costumes. All while reimbursing expenses incurred, exclusions allowing.
These potential risks, which pose a threat to planners, producers and directors, are not all covered by insurance policies. This is why insurers offer other so-called “all risks but” coverage to also address exclusions. These are specific risks that inevitably involve financial losses. The main risks include:
- Unavailability of people (a singer falling ill before a concert)
- Inclement weather (bad weather for outdoor events)
- Equipment (power outages)
- Safety and security (attacks, fire at the event site)
- Protests (the “Gilets Jaunes”)
- A pandemic (Covid-19 for example) (decisions made by prefectures that prevent an event from taking place)
These examples show how insurance coverage changes and adapts to new problems over time. Even more so when the events industry bears the full brunt of these problems.
In keeping with the times, insurance professionals are grappling with these problems.
