Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance

Diversified Communications is committed to delivering the best event experience and outcomes for our Exhibitors and visitors. A key part is ensuring that every exhibitor is sufficiently insured against the kinds of risks that may occur in connection with the exhibition, especially Public Liability, All Risks on Property and Employer’s Liability.

Diversified has worked closely with our insurance issuer to create a Public Liability Insurance product that is cost effective, easy to administer and provides for 100% current and correct cover for your participation in the exhibition. This allows Diversified to apply to our insurer, on your behalf, for $10 million PLI cover for any single one occurrence in respect of public liability, general property and employer’s liability insurance. Exhibitors will not be required to make an application or pay any money directly to an insurance company.

This applies to exhibitors who have purchased a Shell Scheme Exhibition package only, and covers any damages you are legally responsible to pay to a third party for a) personal injury or b) property damage caused by your negligent Business Activities (i.e. while you are at the show, interacting with customers). The insured party is the named exhibitor attending the show – i.e. the company’s legal trading entity name. Depending on the ownership structure of this company –‘co-exhibitors’ and ‘partners’ will be covered if they come under the parent company but these are not named in the policy.

Please note

  • Exhibitors are responsible for ensuring they hold a suitable WorkCover policy for their staff.
  • Product Liability is not included – the company must rely on their own business product insurance in this respect.
  • Space only exhibitors are required to ensure their stand builder also has the necessary public liability insurance. Diversified will contact your stand builder directly for their insurance details. Diversified will contact your stand builder directly to get copies of your stand builder insurance details and Workers Compensation Certificates.
