Venues

What’s the #1 insurance claim in Venues? Patron slips and falls. For clients involved in managing venues, the safety of patrons and staff is paramount. They think about it every day, and we’ll work with them to mitigate risk in every aspect—concessions, maintenance, parking and security. At American Specialty, all venues—big or small—are important to us. We’ll help clients plan for emergencies, remove obstacles to patron safety and provide best-in-class service for underwriting, claims management and loss control.

Casinos

Games of luck are perfect for the casino floor, but luck definitely isn’t a winning strategy for an insurance program. Don’t gamble with the financial well-being of your casino client. Instead, let our team of gaming experts design an insurance and risk management program to protect their financial assets. Common exposures include food and alcohol, security and hotel/hospitality. Racinos—venues that combine a casino with onsite racing—are also covered under this program.

Civic/Convention Centers

These venues host a variety of events like home and garden shows, boat shows, sporting events and concerts. Some standard carriers will add exclusions for athletic or sports participants which can leave a gaping hole in the venue owner’s insurance program and an awkward conversation for the agent. Don’t let that happen to you. We can also help ensure that any vendors and exhibitors who are present at the convention center have their own insurance as well.

Concessionaires

Concessionaires are subcontractors at venues and other locations that handle the food and beverage (including liquor) sales on an outsourced basis. Common liability exposures include bodily injury and products/completed operations. We can also underwrite property policies that address spoilage and contamination.

Dog & Horse Tracks

Locations with onsite racing or off-track betting (OTB) are both eligible for our dog and horse track program. Don’t wager your client’s financial assets with a start-up or unproven insurance company. Work with American Specialty and rest assured you have a winning partner with decades of industry experience on your side.
