We can all agree that the hottest new game on the planet is Pokemon Go!
Recently we had arranged Event Insurance for a client who was meeting with over 1000 likeminded gamers and yes they were playing Pokemon Go. We at MBJ Insurance Solutions love a challenge and approached the Insurance market. What we found was interesting –
Thanks to many news outlets letting the world know that this is an amazing game, with many positives such as, getting kids outside, bringing people together to exercise/play and interact. Wow, even grown men in suits in the city are actively playing this game in their lunch break and not to mention $1.6 M a day for Nintendo.
Like anything that is good, can become bad. Many issues have begun from playing this game whilst on the move. For example – two people had fallen off cliffs, there have been many car accidents, large groups of people attending one place at one time, which has caused havoc with traffic, residences and businesses. The list could go on and on.
In the future, if you organise an event with a large number of attendees, it is very important for you to obtain a Public Liability Insurance policy. It may seem innocent organising such an event, but if anyone was to get hurt or damage any property, you could be left liable.
Our client completed a proposal form and I obtained a number of quotes from insurers I knew could assist. The client placed cover and the event was successful.
