3rd party insurance for exhibition
« on: February 07, 2011, 03:26:32 PM »
Has anyone information on where I can get 3rd part liability insurance for an exhibition of photos and paintings to be held in a visitor information centre run by a water company?
I am aware that the Society of All Artists can provide such insurance but would like to get at least 3 quotes to test the market because a couple of the exhibitors seem reluctant to accept that the SAA figure is OK.
Any help/advice gratefully would be gratefully received.
Thanks
Jeff

Just googled it and it comes up with a whole host of companies.

Thanks but I had already Googled and found lots of insurance brokers offering various insurance services for professional artists, galleries and dealers. But not for occasional amateur artist and photographer exhibition public liability insurance. The venues we have used so far have carried their own public liability insurance but United Utilities require exhibitors to have their own insurance for a display in their visitor centre.
My personal view is that the SAA deal whereby a group consisting up to 19 people can join the SAA for £60 and 3rd party liability is included as part of the membership is an ok deal but other members think otherwise.
Cheers

Hello Jeff I have come to this a bit late but 2 things spring to mind on your problem first a good broker will talk you through what you will need secondly I am not sure but you may need a risk assessment for the broker to get you his best price also as i always try to talk to the people at the venue as they may have people they recommend who know the building
again I know it may be too late to help

Thanks for reply.
I tried Swinton and a local broker. Both either didn't want to bother or didn't know of a suitable policy. I suppose there wouldn't be much commission for them.
Risk assessment? Sounds a bit heavy to show about 30 paintings/photos for 3 days a week for 6 weeks.
Other venues seem to include our liability in their insurance. But ignorance may have been bliss when I put up framed and glazed photos in licensed premises!
Anyhow the group has agreed to go with SAA by direct debit at a cost of £50.
And finally who knows of venues in Lancashire for amateur photographer/artist exhibitions where exhibits are for sale? We need to get value for the insurance premium :-))
