Special Event Insurance

Special Event Insurance

Special Event Insurance is an insurance policy that helps protect your investment in a specific event, such as a wedding.  Event insurance is typically required by a venue for anyone wishing to host an event. Most venues require event liability insurance for at least $1,000,000. After making sure that you’ve insured your event for general liability, the fun part begins. With dining and venue restrictions easing up in Pennsylvania, we are seeing the return of Weddings, Anniversary Parties, Graduations, Celebrations of Life, and more. Everyone is ready to get out and party!

Wedding and Special Event Insurance Did you know you can purchase Special Event Insurance Coverage for your next celebration or function?

Most venues require event hosts to get special event insurance coverage as backup for any potential issues that may occur.

Special event insurance helps to take some liability off the venue, and any claim would go through the host first.  The event host would procure the insurance and the venue is named as an additional insured for extra protection on the certificate of insurance.

Do you need a Certificate of Insurance for your special event?

Most venues are now requiring certificates of insurance for events. A certificate of insurance provides information about your special event insurance coverage, and is often requested to validate liability insurance. Liability insurance can help protect your interests from unfortunate mishaps such as a guest falling or damage to property at the event.

For over 60 years, Gallen Insurance has helped many residents of Pennsylvania with their special event insurance policies for many different occasions including weddings, family reunions, graduation celebrations, golf outings and more! We can help anyone find the event insurance coverage that’s best for them and any type of event.

“I mentioned to a friend that my car insurance rates were rather costly, and that person suggested I speak to someone at Gallen Insurance, to see if I could get a more reasonable quote for me and my daughter. So I made an appointment and was greeted by Amber Rice-Manella, one of the staff members at Gallen! She was informative, courteous, professional and personable, and I was so impressed by her recommendations that I immediately chose them as my new insurance representatives. Thank you for always being there for me and keep up the good work!”

Frequently Asked Questions about Event Insurance

The type of event, number of guests, duration of event, whether or not alcohol will be available, type of insurance coverage, and cost of the event are just a few factors that determine the cost of event insurance coverage.
