Exhibitors & Stallholders Insurance
The risks with exhibitions are high and you need the right exhibitors liability insurance to cover them. Public liability is a must, protecting you from claims from members of the public, or even other exhibitors, should any damage be done to people or their possessions by an accident. Most people and organisations holding events will demand that exhibitors take out their own exhibition public liability insurance, in which case you will need to present valid certificates.
Exhibition booths by their very nature are lightweight, temporary and intrinsically unsafe. You only need your nameplate to fall onto a passing member of the public to find yourself facing a pretty big damages claim. As with any accident, if it’s foreseeable then we can do our best to ensure that it doesn’t happen but we’re talking accidents here and it’s those that you simply can’t imagine happening that can cause us so many problems. That’s the reason for insurance, it gives us peace of mind by protecting us against the unexpected. If you are planning on taking other members of your staff with you to help out then you should add employers liability cover to your quote (simply tick a box on the form).
