Entertainment Insurance Program

Concerts, touring, live events, television, media, and DICE productions

The Alive Risk® Entertainment program provides access to coverage for a range of music touring and live event groups within the industry, including event promoters, event planners, venues, touring entertainers, shell corps, and production support services. We have the ability to quote all of the above in-house. However, for risks that require a full package including scheduled Auto, Crime, and Workers’ Compensation, we also have access to some of the leading entertainment carriers.

This program also provides access to insurance solutions for films, television, and DICE content producers. Not only does Alive Risk have the pen for a DICE product with exceptional flexibility, they also have access to broad form programs and products through admitted carriers.
