Special Events

More often, clients are being asked to provide proof of liability coverage for all types of special events, from wedding receptions to rodeos, softball tournaments to music festivals. Beacon offers a Special Events program that provides short term Commercial General Liability (CGL) coverage for a broad range of activities. Subject to policy conditions, it can provide liability coverage, including defense costs for claims of negligence against the event host; and when required, we also extend coverage to include Host Liquor Liability.

A sample list of events we can cover:
  • Social Events including barbecue gatherings, birthday parties, anniversary parties, reunions and auctions.

  • Entertainment Events such as dog shows, hay rides, fashion shows, concerts and music festivals, rodeos, car shows, and arts and crafts festivals.

  • Business Events including trade shows, conventions, and food vendors.

  • Sporting Events including tournaments, hockey camps, martial arts, and slo-pitch.

For events requiring up to $2M liability, is less than 3 days in length, and is held at either a private residence or community facility – brokers can bind online by visiting the Portal 24/7/365 and receive policy documents immediately.
