A recent arrival on the underwriting scene has entered a national partnership with the business event industry’s leading association.
Beazley, which has been writing event cancellation risks in Australia since 2010, has partnered with Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) in a bid to boost event coverage rates.
Beazley Contingency Underwriter Al Dart says Beazley is the lead insurer for four of the top six global conference and exhibition organisers’ insurance programmes.
￼“Beazley is known for being an innovator in the insurance market,” he says.
“Our cover is ￼easy to understand, simple to use, and is tailored to meet the changing needs ￼of our clients, particularly event organisers.”
￼The majority of insurance currently written by Beazley’s contingency team is cancellation and abandonment cover, with other event-based insurances ￼protecting against the risks and costs associated with poor attendance or ticket sales as well as weather insurance to protect outdoor and seasonal events.
