Purchase Insurance Through Rainprotection

If you do not have insurance, or you would rather not use your own, (similar to when you rent a car – so that claims would not be filed against your policy), we have set up a program with Rainprotection Insurance through which, you can purchase compliant insurance instantly. 

Benefits of using this program: 

  • No Deductible – unlike your corporate policy, Rainprotection’s policy has no deductible. Should there be a claim, you will have no out of pocket costs and your future rates will not go up since you would not need to submit a claim on your policy. 
  • No Hassles – you will not need to go back and forth with your broker adding additional insureds and making your insurance compliant with show requirements. 
  • Coverage for exhibitors who do not have an existing policy 
  • Coverage for international exhibitors whose insurance will not cover them in the USA 
  • Easy and Inexpensive to purchase instantly online 
  • Already pre-filled with all the proper show information. 
  • Submitted to show management for you – Once purchased, they automatically receive a copy
