What insurance do event organisers need?

Public liability insurance for event organisers

Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for event organisers, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

Professional indemnity insurance for event organisers

Professional indemnity insurance is a vital consideration for all businesses that give advice or offer professional services to other businesses. It covers you in the event that you give faulty advice that causes financial loss to a client. You can buy professional indemnity insurance as a stand-alone cover or as part of a combined policy with other covers. At Simply Business we offer between £50,000 and £5 million in professional indemnity cover.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
