Whether you are filming a complex stunt driven series, to a game show, or anything in between; Aon/AGR has you covered.
Television Commercial Production Insurance for Advertisers and Advertising Agencies (Wrap Up Programs)
Aon/AGR offers a Television Commercial Blanket (Wrap Up) insurance program whereby advertising agencies and advertisers can purchase a blanket policy covering all of their television commercial needs.
The advertiser/advertising agency extends these coverages on a primary basis to the production companies filming television commercials on behalf of the advertisers. The coverage is broader and has higher levels of protection than a normal independent production company might carry. Also, the advertiser/advertising agency enjoys substantial premium savings, and it is possible to set up the policies so that coverage is automatic in most cases, thus avoiding potential gaps.
Live Events Insurance
Aon/AGR is well versed in appropriate coverages for traditional and non-traditional entertainment such as:
- Professional sports franchises
- Theatrical productions including but not limited to: Broadway, off-Broadway and touring companies
- Guerilla marketing companies
- Trade shows
- Special events
- Golf tournaments
Aon/AGR also provides comprehensive, competitively-priced coverages for the music industry, including: touring groups, entertainers, musicians, record companies, venues, special events, concerts, and promoters
