I have a feeling that we are possibly talking about event insurance over here.

Is this a site that will supply insurance for this type of thing? I never heard of it but maybe someone else has. Thanks for your input.

I have heard of it before on here, there is actually companies that offer like one day insurance. I am sure one of the experts will come along soon and give more detail on this.

I know there is insurance like this also. I am wondering if it is like the insurance you have to pay to a hall to have a wedding reception or a fund raiser. I knw when we rented a hall on different occasions like this we had to pay for insurance in case of any damages to the property or in case we did not clean up.

You mean the hall did not provide the insurance, around here it is a deposit and if somebody smashes it up they are asked to pay the damages, if they don't then they are taken to the magistrate and served an arrest warrant is served to go and pay the piper.

No we had to pay the hall for the extra insurance to begin with. What really got me was that when we went back the next day the workers from the hall that served our dinner took all the extra meat home. We had lots of extra food and was planning on warming it up while we were cleaning the hall and the only thing left was green beans and potatoes. The also took the center peice from the bridal table. My sister in law was the l;ast to leave and lock up. Everytnhing was there when she left but someone came in and took it later...had to be someone wiht a key cause how else would they get in? We were never reimbursed and I just let it go. I did use my "word of mouth" though and let people know not to rent the hall.

I have a feeling that we are possibly talking about event insurance over here. Catering insurance and event insurance are very different in terms of the coverage offered.



Firey, if you are engaging a banquet hall for marriage party or birthday party (or whatever). The hall authority may ask you to carry event cancellation and liability insurance to avoid any loss of property or money.



Catering insurance is required by the chef in order to protect himself against incidents life- loss of food items, wastage, employee issues, possible contamination of food, liability against food poisoning and such.

So if catering companies are in this line of work for a living they probably carry this type of insurance as a regular insurance.

They would almost have to, it would be just like the insurances that we carry everyday, life, auto, home and since this is their business it would be wise of them to carry a running policy, would not make sense for them to shop by event. I am sure they carry a policy through out the entire year.

Hey don't feel bad I answer myself all the time. At least I know someone is listening then. Anyway as I said they probaly do pay a yearly insurance. Why I agree is because I use to work at a place that rented out their building for different occasions and I remember the guy crabbning about the insurance costs.

unfortunately, it is a necessary evil, espcially if you are going to have people drinking on the premises.
