Why do event planners need insurance?

Your clients have high expectations – especially for weddings and other once-in-a-lifetime events. Even the most dedicated planner can miss out on a popular booking, or otherwise fail to satisfy a client. Event planning insurance protects against legal costs related to oversights, injuries, and other risks that could harm your business. You might also need it to comply with state laws and venue requirements.
