Answers about the plan, including eligibility, options, enrollment, customer service and more.

  • Why do I need Event Cancellation Insurance?

    Have you considered how much money is involved when you total the expenses involved with your event coupled with your anticipated revenue? How vulnerable would you be if your event has to be canceled because of a fire or flood, blizzard, other natural disaster or additional occurrences beyond your control?
  • How much event insurance do I need?

    To make certain that you are fully covered in the event of a claim, it is important that you consider all of your event-related revenues, commitments and expenditures. Your insurance should include your out-of-pocket expenses in organizing the event … financial commitments you are responsible for in case your event is canceled … and the income you expect to generate from the event above and beyond your expenses.
  • Would any other insurance policy cover my event cancellations?

    No. Standard insurance policies are designed to protect you against claims resulting from bodily injury or damage to the property of others. EXPO-PLU$ Event Cancellation Insurance is the only policy specifically designed to insure you against the financial losses you would face if your event is canceled, postponed, curtailed, relocated or suffers reduced attendance.
  • What is covered by the EXPO-PLU$ Event Insurance Plan?

    The EXPO-PLU$ Event Cancellation Insurance Plan provides comprehensive coverage for event cancellations, postponements, abandonments and curtailments, among other losses.

EXPO-PLU$ Event Cancellation Insurance can provide coverage for nonappearance of principal speakers who contribute to the success of your event. In the event of an emergency, if you are unable to vacate the event hall or meeting center as planned, the EXPO-PLU$ Event Cancellation Insurance Plan pays for the additional expenses.
