When getting ready for a flea market or craft fair, small-scale crafters sometimes wonder, “Do I really need vendor insurance?” And the answer is always yes! Whether you are a part-time crafter or you oversee a team to ensure your artisan items are created with quality craftsmanship, vendor insurance is a must to protect you and your business whenever and wherever you exhibit.
Vendors insurance requirements are the norm—and that’s a good thing!
Vendor insurance protects you in a few very important ways, but the first thing to understand when it comes to obtaining the proper insurance coverage is that exhibitor contracts are the norm, and that means that you’ll probably (if you haven’t already) signed an agreement with the host event holder. In that agreement, exhibitors agree to not only carry the exhibitor insurance required but also to hold the event producer harmless.
The required insurance is to protect both the exhibitor and the event producer for claims that arise due to the exhibitors’ actions or products. That means that you as the exhibitor are responsible for the actions and products—whether or not you have purchased exhibitor insurance. But the contract also will have language to the effect that you agree to purchase exhibitor insurance coverage—making it a requirement to participate in the event.
What vendor insurance protects and how to get it
Insurance is a small price to pay for peace of mind when it comes to “what could go wrong” at an event. From falling displays to allergic reactions, slips, and injuries that happen at your booth for visitors, there is a lot to worry about. That’s why everyone that’s at the event is responsible to carry insurance to handle all of these common claims that happen.
