Insure Your Trade Show

Updated on July 28, 2010

Trade shows take significant amounts of time, money, and preparation. And despite all the preparation and money spent, trade shows never go as planned and the need for trade show insurance is essential as it will help protect your investment and energy.

Even though things will go wrong, insurance is designed to provide you a sense of safety during the events. Many shows require insurance that covers clients, customers, exhibitors, and even the building. With this type of insurance, all events and parties are covered from any harm and terrible thing that could add costs or complications to a trade show event.

Those that plan on attending trade shows or participating in them should be sure that the quotes they're being provided include insurance for the event. Insurance options and requirements will depend on the type of show and its potential activities. A gun show may require different insurance for participants than a bridal show.

For example, higher insurance rates can often be found for garden, cooking, and other home related trade show events than events encouraging individuals to follow fashions and purchase clothing. But as we mentioned, a gun show with its ammunition, explosives, and other potentially hazardous products require some of the highest level of insurance available. One of the best aspects of Trade Show insurance is that it will cover any harm that a potential client or visitor man incur while visiting your exhibit.

This includes health and medical related expenses. Be sure to discuss options and what is covered with trade show event staff as well as your own insurance provider. Building insurance varies from event to event and can be extremely expensive. If you're managing the event, you should determine if building insurance during the trade show is essential or a non-factor. Remember that without building insurance that you could be liable for any damage to a building during your trade show.

Like all insurance options, you should investigate all the options available to you for your trade show needs. Being prepared to discuss specific costs and benefits will help you find the insurance coverage that is perfect for you. Multiple event insurance is most common but single event insurance is available. This type of insurance can also be very expensive so determine what is best for you and for your business.
