Why Do You Need Specialist Insurance?

The performing arts present some unusual risk exposures for insurance – from event cancellation and touring to digital and online risks which can expose you globally. Which is why it’s important to get specialist insurance advice. La Playa’s specialist Arts & Entertainment practice is the insurance partner any creative business requires to truly thrive. Dance companies, orchestras, festivals, performing arts organizations and more.

The show must always go on - insurance isn’t just about processing a claim, it’s about thinking laterally to solve challenges and problems fast. Our policies are designed to provide the best possible coverage - tailored for your specific risks, and streamlining costs by placing many risks under a single contract. We work closely with arts trade associations to keep our fingers on the pulse - and to keep you ahead of the game in managing risk as your sector evolves and changes.

Working with a specialist will save you time and distraction from insurance headaches and problems with claims. Based in the US and the UK, La Playa Arts & Entertainment is an award-winning independent specialist insurance broker. We’re passionate about the arts and creative industries – many of us are practitioners and active consumers; in fact, La Playa founded the first ever corporate art collective.
