Contingencies: Events and Filmmaking

Backed by more than 25 years’ experience in the adjustment of these types of losses in Spain and Latin America, we are well-acquainted with the particularities of these types of policies.

Areas of Action

1. Film / TV / Advertising / Entertainment Industry

  • We are experts in losses involving shoot abandonment or stoppage, actor or director non-appearance, loss of filmed material, damage to a shoot’s technical equipment, etc., catering to losses affecting both the filmmaking industry and TV and advertising production.

2. Events, concerts, sports…

  • As a reference bureau in this field, we are continuously involved in adjusting claims related to the cancellation and postponement of festivals, concerts, artists’ tours, sports events, conferences, and exhibitions.
  • We are also specialised in claims under promoters’ liability policies.
  • Our broad international network gives us access to the location of the insured event when there is a risk of cancellation.

3. Prize Indemnity, Hole in One and Over redemption

For this specific policy type that insures the possibility of a prize being won or the success of a promotion, we audit the process in situ and/or in documented form.
