Commercial General Liability Insurance (CGL)

About Event Cancellation Insurance

You could receive protection against cancellation caused by adverse weather or natural disasters, such as tornadoes, floods, and hurricanes.

If your event relies on the presence of a third-party vendor, speaker or performer and they do not show up, you may be able to recover some of your costs through cancellation coverage. 

Pro Tip: Don’t wait to research and purchase event insurance. Issues can crop up at any point in the event planning process. Before you make any purchases or place deposits, talk with an event insurance provider.
