January to March is usually the time when outdoor event organisers and marquee hire companies receive their invitation to renew their insurance cover.

At Blythin & Brown we have over 30-years of experience of providing all-risks-insurance cover to businesses large and small in this sector.

When a major artist embarks on a tour, or the organisation of any festival, wedding or outdoor event kicks off, it represents a major investment on the part of promoters, organisers and hosts.

Ensuring that the these operations are protected by the right insurance cover has become vital – particularly as some shows often feature multi-million pound stage sets.

Insurance can protect these investments from a range of risks including:

  • Adverse weather – Outdoor events are particularly vulnerable to the weather. Insurance cover can be secured by taking into account the usual weather conditions for the time of year and the type of event being run.
  • Non-appearance – Covering death, accident, illness and travel delay – cover can be extended to include death or life threatening illness to family members.
  • Cancellation – Should the worst happen, insurance can cover your costs in the eventuality that your event has to be cancelled.
  • Communicable disease – Insurance can help cover you against outbreaks of diseases such as swine flu, ebola and the norovirus.
  • Threat and act of terrorism – Insurance cover can range from “the day of event only” through to cancellation due to surrounding conditions should a major terrorism act take place in the run up to your event.
  • Advertising indemnity – It is possible to secure indemnity cover for both the advertising agents and commercial producers.
  • Over redemption – Such cover can protect budgets against a marketing promotion becoming too popular, or should an event be oversubscribed.

We have supplied the marquee and outdoor event hire equipment industry with insurance for over 30 years, during which time we have developed one of the market leading insurance policies.

Ranging from static outdoor leisure facilities to individual equipment hire including glamping and holiday sites our policy delivers comprehensive insurance cover at affordable premiums. We are an accredited supplier member of MUTA, the UK’s only trade association dedicated to marquees, tents and structures.

Working with a knowledgeable broker can ensure tailored coverage that will help keep the show on the road.
