A Few Things to Consider
When you compare our two artists insurance options, it's easy to see that the Annual Policy is much more comprehensive. While both policies share many of the same benefits, our Show Policy is best suited for artists and crafters who only attend a few shows per year.
If you attend multiple shows throughout the year, then the Annual Policy will be both more affordable and convenient since you won't need to purchase coverage for each event. The Annual Policy also offers more coverage than the Show Policy, including products & completed operations coverage, as well as the option to add professional liability coverage. Professional liability is necessary if you perform any kind of art demonstrations or if you teach training sessions, host workshops, or instruct others through arts and crafts classes or online videos.
The Show Policy excludes product liability coverage, which means that any bodily injury or property damage caused by your products is not covered. For example, if you sell someone a piece of jewelry and that person has an allergic reaction, you could potentially be held personally liable, because without product liability coverage, your insurance would not respond to the claim. However, the Annual Policy includes product liability coverage and could respond to these types of claims.
