People and organizations hosting events in Vermont are exposed to a plethora of potential risks. Not only are they expected to make sure their event goes well, but they also may be held financially responsible for accidents that occur during their event. Event insurance policies help protect event hosts from the financial consequences of covered accidents.
Event insurance policies are used to insure a wide variety of events. Businesses, nonprofit organizations, governments and individuals may purchase event policies for everything from company parties and corporate fundraisers to parades and birthday parties. Other events that policies may be purchased for include weddings, anniversary celebrations, graduation parties, sports competitions and just about any other large gathering.
Anyone person or organization hosting an event in Vermont should consider getting an event policy for their planned activities. This includes both in-state hosts planning an event that will be held on their property and out-of-state hosts who are renting space for an event. Without a policy in place, hosts can be dangerously exposed to risk an personally responsible for any accidents that happen during their event.
The main coverages included in event policies tend to be liability coverages. This is because the biggest risks event hosts face are usually liability risks. Often, an event policy will provide a combination of broad and narrow event liability coverage options.

Most of the time, hosts are able to find insurance coverage for any activities their event involves. In the event hosts can’t find a policy that’ll provide coverage for an activity, they might want to reconsider whether the activity is wise (not to mention legal).
Some vendors will only come to an event if they’re added to the host’s event policy. In most cases, vendors can easily be added to an event policy. Hosts usually just have to contact their insurance agent and ask that the vendor is added. It’s even frequently possible to include specific language that a vendor asks for in an event policy’s paperwork.
As is true with many insurance policies, the cost of event policies varies significantly. How much a particular policy costs depends on many factors, such as:
While costs vary, insurance companies are usually able to keep event policy affordable. Because these policies normally only provide coverage while an event is going on, insurers often are able to maintain low premiums while simultaneously offering several coverages.
