Tenant User Liability Insurance Policies (TULIP)

Do you have a building that you lease for events? Tenant user liability insurance policies (TULIP) provide coverage for individuals and groups seeking to hold events or activities on municipal property. The coverage provides the proper insurance for the lessee based on the venue or facility’s requirements and therefore holds the venue or facility harmless should an incident occur during the event.

These policies are a simple solution to ensure the venue or facility is protected, while also providing an easy and efficient solution for the event organizer to obtain the coverage that is being required of them. The fully automated, online system provides the venue/facility the ability to allow their tenants/lessees to visit their portal and obtain the required coverage for that event. The portal is also a risk management tool, so if the tenant/lessee already has the required coverage, they can upload proof of coverage online.

Five Reasons You Need Special Event Coverages

Damage to Property and Premises. Provides general liability which protects all parties involved - the planner, venue, or vendors for losses due to property damage.

Event Cancellation. Protects your revenue or expenses from an event against cancellation due to circumstances beyond your control, such as a hurricane or earthquake, severe or adverse weather, terrorism, or the unavailability of the venue due to fire, flood, or power outage.

Unpredictable Weather. Protects against adverse weather conditions that can reduce attendance and affect revenue.
Liquor Liability. Provides coverage for potential claims that may arise from serving alcohol at an event.
Prize Indemnity. Enables you to offer a risk-free large prize for a fraction of the prize value.
