Entertainment and events

  • When you are in the entertainment industry or running events, you need a specialist insurer to meet your specific needs. For more than 30 years, Chubb has delivered bespoke entertainment insurance products coupled with exceptional underwriting, loss control and claims service. As the entertainment and events industries become more ambitious and complex, we continue to develop solutions that address existing and emerging risks.

Film and TV

For more than three decades, Chubb has been underwriting film productions and staying apace with the new technologies of this changing industry. From film to video, analog to digital and SD to HD, we’ve provided protection to film producers over the years for myriad risks and exposures.

In an industry that’s increasingly high-tech and high-risk, those involved in film productions need an insurance company that genuinely understands their business.

We have covered productions including Oscar winning actors and big budgets, as well as television programmes shot in dangerous parts of the world. Our film production policy provides essential insurance solutions for a wide variety of productions including:

  • Feature films
  • Television
  • Commercials
  • Animation
  • Documentaries
  • Corporate
  • Educational
  • Music videos

Our policy


Our wide ranging film production package policy protects against filming risks. It also encompasses production media, animation artwork, equipment, props, sets and wardrobe. However, in addition we insure extra expenses arising from illness or injury to cast members, damage to technical kit, theft, liability and errors and omissions. In short, our film production insurance is wide ranging and will protect the entirety of the production from start to finish.


Global capabilities


Wherever you are shooting or processing, we are there to support you. With specialised entertainment underwriters in strategic film hubs around the world, our global capabilities are unmatched. These offerings include:

  • Admitted insurance in many foreign markets
  • Local insurance for non-Dutch producers
  • Insurance support for international co-productions

Services


Chubb has specialised claims representatives, located strategically throughout the world, who deal with film and other entertainment risks. We work to help find solutions to your problems and resolve claims as quickly and efficiently as possible. As always, they are backed by our promise to pay claims within 48 hours of settlement. We provide in-house risk specialists that are also available to film producers when needed to help ensure peace of mind.

Events

The planning, production and staging of events can involve ever-increasing elements of risk. Television and satellite coverage, sponsorship, integrated marketing, corporate hospitality and merchandising have all added to the complexity of managing an event.

Chubb offers flexible Event Cancellation insurance with considerable capacity and the ability to tailor each policy to the particular needs of each occasion and client. Protection can be provided for Loss of Expenses, Revenue or Profit. In addition, our Policy will pay the extra expense incurred by the insured to prevent the cancellation, interruption or postponement of an event.

Why do you need specialist Event Cancellation insurance?

Every event is different, with unique risks. Whether the event is indoors or outdoors, lively or intimate, some things remain out of your control.

Policy offering

Chubb’s Event Cancellation Policy provides insurance against losses resulting from the cancellation, interruption or postponement for a wide variety of events, such as:

  • Concerts
  • Tours
  • Exhibitions
  • Conferences and tradeshows
  • Hospitality events
  • Theatrical productions
  • Sporting events
  • Charity events

Peace of mind

Chubb’s dedicated and knowledgeable event underwriters have the necessary authority to make quick decisions. No two clients are the same: the same goes for a Chubb Policy. We ensure the cover provided is relevant for each customer. Our policy is broader than many competitors, with fewer exclusions and without warranties and conditions precedent, so you’ll have peace of mind that there will be no surprises if a loss occurs. Payment of loss will be made within 30 days of receipt and agreement of a proof of loss.
