I never thought I would be so excited about something like online event insurance, but I can assure you, my excitement is for real! If you ever plan any type of event, from a wedding to a festival, you should be to! Let me explain.
Every summer I put on a Film Camp for kids to learn the basic ins and outs of filmmaking. One of the largest costs of running the camp is getting an insurance policy for the event. I am not a business-numbers-law guru by any means so when I first decided to do the camp this was the most overwhelming task!
The first year I took out a policy through our home insurance providers. After what seemed like a million emails and hundreds of phone calls we finally got it set up. It was expensive, stressful, and time consuming. When I went to get the camp ready this year I groaned when I saw “get insurance” on my to-do list. Then I had an idea. What if there was an easier, faster way online! I looked it up and sure enough, there was through the fabulous website theventhelper.com
Event Helper offers low cost insurance with superior coverage and support for thousands of events. I honestly couldn’t believe it. I was super impressed with the ease of their website, their customer support, and the price of my policy. I almost thought it was too good to be true since it was such an easy process until I read the history behind their company.
Event Helper was started to do exactly what I was experiencing. It was intended to make the process quick and user-friendly. The creator of the company, Will Maddux, had learned that brokers didn’t like to write event policies because they take a long time and the commission is lower. He realized there was a niche for quick event policies and ran with it.
Today, most hotels, cultural centers, ballrooms and other event spaces require their clients to provide their own event insurance, be it a wedding, birthday party, family reunion, festival, concert, photo shoot, athletic event or charity fundraiser. These types of events happen all the time, and no one wants to be waiting around for an insurance policy. Event Helper has literally changed that into an easy “click, click” process and I can assure you, it is awesome!
I had the insurance policy for my camp signed and paid for in a matter of days vs. a matter of weeks, and it was cheaper than my previous policy though it still covered the same. Whatever type of event you are trying to insure I highly suggest checking out their website! I am so glad I found it!
