Comprehensive insurance cover for vendors at events in the UK

We offer several vendor liability insurance cover options, including public liability, employer’s liability, equipment cover, cancellation, abandonment and postponement. 

Vendor liability insurance 

Accidents can occur at any event, and vendors are frequently dealing with members of the public which puts them at risk of having claims made against them. Due to the level of contact involved between vendors and the public at events, taking out vendor liability insurance is a way of keeping yourself protected against potential claims, so you won’t have to lose out financially should an accident occur. 

We have two specific insurance policies for vendors, they are:

  • Single event policies which can cover you for four consecutive days worth of insurance protection. This can be extended if required. 

  • Multiple event policies which can cover you for either up to 15 events or up to 45 events. You can also request cover for additional events if required. Simply get in touch to discuss your individual needs.

What does our vendor liability insurance cover?

We offer several types of vendor liability insurance cover. Our main cover options are:

  • Public liability insurance - this covers accidental bodily injury to a member of the public or accidental damage to third party property at the event if found to be a result of your negligence. 

  • Employers liability insurance - this will protect you from legal liability to pay damages, claimants costs and expenses as well as damages arising as a result of injury to anyone you’ve employed at your event (including volunteers, temporary staff and helpers) who is under your supervision or control at the time of the injury. 

  • Event equipment insurance - this will cover you for accidental damage, loss or theft of stock and other equipment you’re hiring or bringing to the event that isn’t part of the fixtures or fittings of the venue. You’ll be covered for accidental damage, loss or theft of the equipment you're legally responsible for during the event. 

  • Event cancellation insurance - this covers you if the event is cancelled, postponed or abandoned. Please contact us for more information regarding this type of cover.

Vendor liability insurance FAQs

What is vendor liability insurance?

Vendor liability insurance is a type of insurance cover designed to protect policyholders against vendor-specific claims made against them by third parties (such as an injury or damage to third-party property). 

Who needs public liability insurance?

Public liability insurance is strongly recommended for businesses who are interacting with members of the public, including caterers and vendors. This is because accidents can happen at any event, and you could have claims made against you should an accident occur which is deemed to be the result of your negligence. 

What are the benefits of vendor liability insurance? 

  • It protects you from financial loss - accidents can happen at any event and anything as small as a loose cable could lead to a member of the public tripping and making a costly claim against you.

  • It gives you peace of mind whilst attending events as you won’t have to worry about potential accidents happening and ending up out-of-pocket.
