Why Public Liability Protection is Needed for Events
Organizing and hosting events can be a risky business. From concerts through to corporate networking functions, there is always a risk (however small) that things may get out of hand and guests may have an accident.
For example, if a portion of the stage fell off and hit a concert goer, or if an attendee at a networking function accidentally broke a window at the venue, the organizer of the event would be liable for the costs associated with fixing both these problems – provide medical care to the individual the stage hit, and providing a new window to replace the one which was broken.
The liability risks of hosting an event can be extremely expensive; and whilst many events are hosted where nothing goes wrong, a single problem at a single event can mean serious financial issues for promoters and organizers.
