Event Cancellation Insurance is needed for any well-run business as it reassures attendees and exhibitors that you have covered all possible risks. We understand that each esports events is unique, but unfortunately, sometimes events can be cancelled for a range of reasons outside of our control. Event Cancellation Insurance can give you financial reassurance should your event need to be cancelled, and at GG Insurance we will assist and support your event with a proactive approach.

We'll protect you for:

  • Hiring costs
  • Financial losses
  • Reputation damage control
  • Unexpected low attendee figures
  • Venue costs
  • Ticket sales

Holding an event comes with the obvious risks such as equipment damage or people not turning up, but there is also the liability risks where if someone falls or trips at your event, they could become a potential claimant. Likewise, if your event causes any permanent damage to your hired venue, you need to be prepared to handle the costs.

We recognise that esports events have unusual risk associated with them, but should an accident happen, our Event Liability Insurance can cover the costs, and it is also great for reputation control in the event of an incident.

Our Event Liability Insurance is designed for each specific event, and we want to meet your exact needs. Our insurance is completely flexible, and we will work with you to find the perfect solution, assess your needs and provide the right cover.

The equipment at an esports event is unique, and we can provide specialist cover so that you are covered for the risk of damage or stolen and lost property at your event.

You’ll have:

  • Reassurance when it comes to your property

Our insurance is flexible, and we work with you to guide you through our process. Our Property insurance can essentially cover all the property that you decide needs to be insured, and this can include specialist equipment and infrastructure.
