Event Insurance
« on: November 20, 2007, 11:32:20 AM »
Anybody out there know of a source for event insurance? We're in the planning stages for small-scale WWI event out here in California (yes, WE ARE NOT DEAD!) and we need to get this lined up for obvious reasons. Thanks in advance for any information.

Might be worthwhile to give Smoke & Fire News a call.  If Donlyn Meyers doesn't know directly about event insurance, she would probably know someone that does.  Their phone # is toll free at 1-800-766-5334.

I tried to get insurance for a event one time and was laughed off the phone by every company you could think of. If the land owner has a policy that should be OK. I might be mistaken too about that. The Smoke and Fire sounds good to me.

There were two companies that I used to have the info to for event insurance. One was in New England and the other was in the Midwest. Can try to find them again but not making any promises. Would say it would be safe to estimate at least $1,000 for a one day policy.

When we were looking for an alternative to the NMHA insurance to cover an event here in GA, one guy in my unit simply called up his own insurance agent and got a quote for $1 million coverage for a 3 day event at $370. In the end, we didn't end up needing it (NMHA came through with the coverage), but it's still a good place to start looking.

The price might be a regional thing. Know it would be $1,000 for $1 million coverage in this area since I had to contact some people last year.

Maybe it is some wierd regional thing. I do know that the NMHA's insurance policy is $800 a year and covers 4-7 weekends per year. Like I said, it might be wise to shop around.

Shane,

Can you let us know if they do insurance nationally or just regionally? Would be a good source to purchase insurance from. Anyone else know of another source?
