Arts, Entertainment and Recreation

This sector includes a wide range of establishments that operate facilities or provide services to meet the varied cultural, entertainment and recreational interests of their patrons.

The insurance requirements are diverse and range from large arts and cultural institutions with many valuable works to small seasonal leisure events in towns and villages.

Why QBE?

Our broad range of insurance products provides specialist cover for museums and fine art as well as insuring risks such as those with high visitor footfall; employers of creative and seasonal staff; or product risks associated with developing new computer games. 

Our Risk Solutions team are highly respected sector experts, evaluating potential hazards to protect our customers and their patrons. This may include fire protection at a theatre, the best entry and access systems at a concert venue or sharing data on industry trends and innovations. They work closely with our Claims team on defensibility and proactive intervention to minimise interruption and protect reputation in a sector which is highly dependent upon discretionary spending.
