We provide all insurance needs of venues of any size, such as auditoriums, music halls, amphitheaters, stadiums, convention centers and performing arts theaters. We can tailor a policy to cover the liabilities and potential exposures based on the type of events held at a particular venue. As experienced insurance agents in the entertainment industry, we recognize the unique needs of the venue or property owner and are able to provide the protection they need.

As an example, pyrotechnics are excluded under most general liability policies. If an event held at your venue involves pyrotechnics such as music concerts, then you may be gravely underinsured.

You need an experienced entertainment agent like the Truman Van Dyke Company who can provide you with the protection you need for your venue. We can get you broader coverage without the standard exclusions that most insurers add to a typical general liability policy at the best affordable price.

Special Events


A special event is essentially a one time event in which insurance coverage is provided for the duration of the event, otherwise known as short term coverage. These events may have attendance of 100 people to 500,000 people. These can be anything from a one day filming event or company picnic, to a 30 day convention with 500,000 attendees. These include special events such as music concerts, festivals, parades, trade shows or a business conference.

Regardless of size or event type, the owner of the location where an event is taking place will require a minimum of $1,000,000 General Liability insurance evidenced by a certificate of insurance. We are expert at placing coverage of this nature quickly, professionally, and accurately so that the needs of the venue owner are met, and the event can commence without a hitch. Some contractual liability requirements especially for larger events can be complex and require very high limits. Again, we are experts in this arena and have access to the top insurers who write this very specialized class of business.

Contingency Coverages

This is a special insurance product that protects you against Event Cancellation, Non-Appearance or Abandonment of a Performer crucial to your event, Prize Indemnity, and Weather or Rain Insurance. As we say in show business, the show must go on. If you are promoting a special event or just planning a wedding, if your event is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances such as sickness or severe weather conditions, you could be out a substantial amount of money. We can protect you against these unforeseen events.
