Why do Events need insurance?

Perfectly organised seating and speakers and performers who segue to each other in the most natural and smooth way – in a large event, the only one who can truly understand the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes are probably other event planners. However, despite your perfectionism when it comes to event planning, there are some mishaps that you can’t plan for. It is therefore important when holding an event that you have appropriate insurance in place if disaster does strike.

What types of events can Aon arrange insurance for?

Due to our longstanding relationship with insurers, Aon are able to arrange cover for most types of events. Whether it’s an award function, gala dinner or annual general meeting, our team can help find the appropriate cover to suit your event.

Is insurance a mandatory requirement for events?

While there is no governing body which mandates insurance for events, some of your clients or some event venues may require you to hold Public Liability insurance before commencing work. Regardless of whether it is a requirement, insurance should still be an important consideration if you’re holding an event.
