Heffernan Launches Insurance Program for Burning Man Event Participants

June 29, 2011

Heffernan Insurance Brokers has launched a new program called Insurance on the Playa, which offers coverage for participants of the Burning Man event. Coverage can include liability for theme camps, art cars and art installations as well as coverage for owned or rented property.

Historically, participants have found securing insurance for the Burning Man event to be a challenge. Many brokers and carriers were not familiar with the Burning Man event and therefore had a difficult time understanding how to underwrite the exposures. Heffernan’s Amy Vitarelli (San Francisco) and Benjamin Stern (Los Angeles) worked for two years putting the program together. As past participants of Burning Man themselves, they were able to work closely with a carrier in underwriting the program.

Heffernan Insurance Brokers offers a full line of property, liability, group medical insurance, personal insurance and financial services. The company provides insurance products and services to individuals, as well as to companies within a variety of industries including construction, manufacturing, wine, property owners, nonprofits, and technology.
