According to a recent article found on Business Insurance, event planners are showing a trend of NOT insuring their events. According to research, the article suggests that many of the 50,000 event planners across the country are independently operated and will only get insurance for an event at the client’s request.
Of course here at Hotels Unlimited and at all of our NJ Banquet Halls, we will always work to make sure that every last detail and “what if” is covered when hosting any event from corporate events at the National Conference Center, elegant Central NJ weddings at the Atlantis Ballroom or Versailles Ballroom, a sweet 16 at the Crystal Ballroom, or a Bar/Bat Mitzvah at the Sterling Ballroom or Windsor Ballroom.

But like anyone else, we are only human and cannot control everything. For example in last August, Hurricane Irene had ruined more than 6,000 weddings across the east coast according to a report from CNN Money. The average cost of a wedding is about $30,000 and about a whopping $70,000 in New York City.. ouch!
So would you consider insuring your wedding or large gala event? As we all have learned throughout life, poop happens and so does the weather. Although we always can hope for the best for anyone’s big day, we can only do just that. Hope.
