EVENTS

You can plan every detail of your event—except the weather. Yet inclement weather can cause diminished attendance, cancellations and lost revenue. That’s why you need more than crossed fingers and a back-up plan: you need weather protection.

You can plan every detail of your event—except the weather. Yet inclement weather can cause diminished attendance, cancellations and lost revenue. That’s why you need more than crossed fingers and a back-up plan: you need weather protection.

 

If you’re planning an outdoor event and are concerned about the weather, we can help put your mind at ease. Here are a few examples of one-time event coverage:

 

Sporting Events

Nothing derails a sporting event faster than bad weather. Yet delays and cancellations aren’t simply annoying—the financial impact can be devastating. We’ll help you create a weather insurance policy that’s built for your event specifics. Need seasonal or long-term coverage for an event series or tournament? We can help with that, too.

Fairs and Festivals

Not only do you want to avoid rain during your fair or festival, but you also want the pre-event hours to stay relatively dry so that your event location doesn’t turn into a swamp. We’ll help you pinpoint how much rain is too much, then create a weather insurance policy to protect your event.

Special Occasions

Don’t let bad weather crash the party. Instead, we’ll help you identify inclement weather concerns based on the event location and date, then create a weather insurance policy that offers both protection and peace of mind. The new forecast: a 100% chance of a great time!

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY


“Anyone who is in charge of running a charity event with a large field should consider Vortex Weather insurance. Signing up for the insurance was easy and eliminated numerous concerns if weather became an issue. It was nice knowing all of the hard work we put into our event was not going to be wasted. We liked the flexibility to set our own terms based on the amount of rainfall and the time constraints. In addition, the price was very reasonable. Having Eric Anderson onsite to represent the company also provided us great confidence in the company and service offered. We will definitely be using the service again for future events.”

— Justin Malone, General Manager, Greensboro National Golf Club

“Our largest tournaments typically involve hundreds of teams playing across 20+ facilities across the city. Vortex insures key locations so while we may experience rain at one facility, but not the others, we know we’re still covered!”

— Tori Blake, Midwest Sports Productions

“Anyone charged with the execution of a high end, costly event can relate with losing sleep to concerns about weather issues. Vortex Weather Insurance enabled us to guarantee playable weather, or offer our participants their money back. This has dramatically eased our concerns leading up to big events and fundraisers where the ability to protect everyone involved increases confidence and credibility. The Metropolitan PGA has partnered with Vortex for our association events and also as a benefit to our Section Professionals who will benefit from investing in weather insurance for their most important events and outings.”

WHAT TYPE OF WEATHER PRESENTS A RISK TO YOUR EVENT?


Did you know?

Accumulating snow might be great for bread and milk sales, but it can quickly hinder event attendance and earnings. For some businesses, too little snow can be a problem. Tell us your snow-related concerns—and the related financial risk—and we’ll help you build a weather insurance policy, so you don’t have to put your bottom line on ice.
