How Do I Know the Vendors I’ve Hired for My Event are Insured?


Always ask your vendors (event production, caterer, photographer, florist, etc.) for their Certificate of Insurance. This confirms the vendor has adequate insurance for themselves and their company in the areas of Workman’s Compensation, liability, and property.  The document should list the effective date of the policy, insurance coverage, and the types and dollar amount of applicable liability.

This is particularly important if the event has a third party vendor charging and serving liquor.  In this case the vendor is required to have a liquor permit as well as liability insurance.
