EXPO-PLU$ can help minimize Event Cancellation Losses
Do you want to risk the planning, budget and revenue for your event?

The fact is, months before your event opens its doors, you already have incurred substantial event planning expenses:

  • advertising and publicity deposits
  • reservations for hotels and halls
  • plane tickets
  • preparing special exhibits hotels
  • transportation guarantees
  • center rentals

 

All of these can add up to thousands of dollars which would be lost if your event was suddenly cancelled or changed to a different time or place. And that’s before you even consider all the revenue you stand to lose.

 

That’s where EXPO-PLU$ Event Cancellation Insurance Plan comes in. You get customized protection to cover your lost expenses as well as your lost revenue, from the largest trade show to the smallest professional meeting … regardless of size, at a cost that won’t break your budget.

 

Losses from Event Cancellations

Our Event Cancellation Insurance plan provides comprehensive protection for covered personal property owned, leased or rented by your organization while at your event or in transit. Also, the EXPO-PLU$ Event Cancellation Insurance Plan reimburses you for theft of on-site registration receipts.

It is designed and administered by Mercer Consumer, a service of Mercer Health & Benefits Administration LLC, an insurance broker and consultant, that specializes in designing and administering association-sponsored group event insurance plans. Mercer Consumer is dedicated to providing broad protection for you, your association or organization’s budget.
