(click here to view full infographic)

No matter how much time, energy and money you invest in your events, forces beyond your control can cause costly cancellations or interruptions; from hurricanes to snowstorms, labor disputes, acts of terrorism, outbreaks of communicable disease and more.

The ASAE-Endorsed Showstoppers® Association Event Cancellation Insurance Program helps provide protection for the loss of revenue or the commitment of expenses due to cancellation, abandonment, curtailment, or rescheduling of an event.

It also pays for your losses due to the reduced attendance at a continued event – full cancellation of an event is not required.
