Games of luck are perfect for the casino floor, but luck is not 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 acceptable.

Civic/Convention Centers

These venues host a variety of events like home and garden shows, boat shows, sporting events, and concerts.  Typically 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 the vendors and exhibitors that show up at the convention center have their own insurance as well.

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 and we can design property plans that address spoilage and contamination.
