Weatherbill to guarantee revenue for food festival organisers


Weatherbill have completed a novel weather insurance cover for the organisers of Belgium’s largest outdoor culinary festival. Taste of Antwerp, in it’s fifth year, takes place in August. It’s essentially a food festival at which renowned chefs and caterers provide the entertainment in the form of small plates of their food to the thousands who attend.

Tickets are purchased on arrival at the event, with no advance booking or purchase available, this makes the festival extremely sensitive to the weather (particularly rain). Weatherbill is providing the organisers with cover which will pay out automatically should rainfall during the event exceed 9.7mm.

Full press release from Weatherbill available here.
