What is Event Insurance?

Event insurance in Ireland is a type of insurance coverage that provides financial protection and risk management for individuals or organizations hosting events. It is designed to safeguard against potential losses or liabilities associated with organizing and hosting an event, such as conferences, weddings, exhibitions, concerts, festivals, or sporting events.

Event insurance typically covers various aspects of an event, including:

Property Damage:

Coverage for damage to the event venue or rented equipment caused by unforeseen circumstances like fire, theft, or severe weather.

Public Liability:

Protection against claims for bodily injury or property damage caused to third parties during the event. This coverage is particularly important if attendees or participants are injured or if their property is damaged.

Cancellation or Postponement:

Reimbursement for costs incurred if the event needs to be cancelled, postponed, or rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the organizers, such as extreme weather, a natural disaster, or the non-appearance of key individuals.


Coverage for financial losses resulting from the non-appearance of a scheduled performer, speaker, or key participant due to circumstances beyond their control, such as illness or travel disruptions.

Event Equipment:

Coverage for loss, theft, or damage to equipment or props used for the event, including audiovisual equipment, staging, lighting, and other rented or owned equipment.

Event Liability:

Protection against claims for bodily injury or property damage caused by the actions of event staff, volunteers, or contractors working at the event.

Event insurance policies can be tailored to the specific needs and requirements of the event, and the coverage options and costs can vary based on factors such as the size of the event, the number of attendees, the location, and the duration. It is important to consult with your Insurance Broker to understand the specific terms, conditions, and coverage limits of event insurance policies available should you need this type of insurance.
