Information Session with ASSURART - Are COVID-19 related risks insurable?

2:00 PM, April 28, 2021


The confinement period and physical distancing rules resulting from COVID-19 have had a significant impact on the performing arts. It has also given rise to the development of alternative means of content distribution, allowing certain companies and promoters to increase their audience.
These new forms of distribution are likely to remain an important asset in the entertainment industry, even after the pandemic. However, these new means of diffusion, as well as the pandemic itself, bring significant new challenges and risks, some insurable, others not. To learn more, come and meet the specialized team of ASSURART brokers.
