The ShowDown® Event Cancellation Insurance program is designed specifically for managers of Tradeshows, Conferences, Consumer Shows and other special events. ShowDown® is an “all-risk” policy that can be tailored to your specific needs. The program protects you and your organization against financial loss due to:

  • Cancellation
  • Postponement
  • Interruption
  • Abandonment
  • Relocation
  • Enforced Reduced Attendance (ERA)
  • Failure to Vacate the Venue

ShowDown® Event Cancellation Insurance Program allows the show manager to:

  • Return funds to exhibitors or attendees
  • Keep estimated profits
  • Pay incurred expenses

Many show managers have called this product a form of customer service. Please read our Case Studies to see how the policy protects you, your exhibitors and your attendees in event of a loss.
