Snowstorm: A day after Christmas 2012

A blizzard warning has been issued for much of the North East and there is a major beer festival scheduled for this weekend in Boston. Many event planners overlook the impact weather can have on their event, all that planning, ticket sales, sponsorship revenues, etc can all be undone by mother nature.

Fortunately you can buy insurance for this and for indoor festivals it is surprisingly inexpensive. During the planning of your next event take a minute and think about what happens if a blizzard, hurricane or other major weather event causes travel delays or shuts down public transportation. Then contact me for options to transfer this risk to the insurance company.

As with all insurance policies there are limitations, exclusions and many factors that are used in the rating of the policy. I will help guide you to the best option for your event.
