Starting February 18, 2019 markelinsurance.com will have a new and improved look. Come back then to see our new user-friendly design, and explore new resources for you and your business.

Event liability insurance

For special events, you can't plan for everything.

Markel's event liability insurance provides coverage for damages for which you are responsible if there is an accident at your event that causes injury or property damage.

Event liability insurance provides the following primary coverage:
  • Bodily injury and property damage liability–Up to $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 total
  • Host liquor liability insurance*
  • Cancellation endorsement, optional

Please note. You may remove host liquor liability for alcohol-related occurrences if you will not be serving alcohol at your event. Your premium will be reduced if you exclude this coverage.

Additional insured? Never an additional charge. Many venues now require event liability insurance. Generally, the venue will be named as “additional insured” on the certificate of insurance. Markel includes this with your policy at no extra cost.

Business and corporate event insurance
Markel also offers liability coverage for your business and corporate events*. Examples of some of the business events we cover include:

  • Business dinner
  • Business meeting
  • Corporate private party
  • Fundraiser dinner
  • Non-profit function
