Entertainment Insurance 101
Presented by Johnsonese Brokerage

We’ll use real claim examples from the worlds of film, theatre, and live events to explain the need for insurance for entertainment events. Then we’ll review the typical insurance requirements of venues, and for city permits for live events.

We’ll also delve into Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance and its importance for protecting creative work. Again, we’ll use real world scenarios to demonstrate the importance of E&O insurance to filmmakers, composers, playwrights, and other content creators.

Ample time with be available for Q&A. Bring your insurance questions!
