Public Liability Insurance for Events

If you are participating in an event – for example as a stallholder – then you may be subject to a different set of risks. Temporary Public Liability insurance for the day could:

  • Cover you in case someone trips over your display or gets injured by your equipment.
  • Protect against damage claims if you accidentally damage a venue's property or another exhibitor's booth.
  • Fulfil event requirements as many event organisers require participants to have their own Public Liability insurance.

Each event represents a blend of meticulous planning, dedication and eager anticipation, particularly when it's a unique and one-off occasion. However, no matter how well-planned they are, all events carry the possibility of unexpected mishaps.

Mode Insurance can provide tailored Public Liability insurance for your one-off event so that it is remembered positively.

This can also include Public Liability insurance for market stalls, whether you have a market stall at an event for one day, several days or even a month or more. The market organiser may require you to have a valid public liability insurance policy in place, or you may want to purchase a temporary policy for your own peace of mind.
