Mother Nature always bats last

Spectrum Weather and Specialty Insurance, Inc., a leading domestic broker of rain insurance, event liability insurance, event cancellation insurance, and other event-related insurance products, has joined the Florida Federation of Fairs and Livestock Shows.

“We are very excited at the prospect of working with the member organizations of the Florida Federation of Fairs and Livestock Shows (FFF&LS) and helping those entities come to a better understanding of the applications of rain insurance, and the current landscape of the rain and weather insurance marketplace,” said Robert Holmes, Spectrum’s founder and President. The membership of FFF&LS includes fairs and festivals of all sizes, including community, county, regional and state-wide events.

The resources available to the FFF&LS members through the Spectrum will give those members access to a simplified and comprehensive system that provides for their rain insurance and event cancellation needs, at rates that are among the most competitive in the industry. Because Spectrum works with several insurance companies, it can typically provide rates to its clients that are favorable to those obtained in the past through other outlets. “Fairs that have obtained rain insurance in the past may find that they are not taking full advantage of recent changes in the marketplace,” state Holmes. “And for those that have not purchased rain insurance in the past, it may behoove them to explore that possibility this year, as rates are as affordable as ever. After all, Mother Nature always bats last.”

The state of Florida reports more thunderstorms than any other US state. Some places report in excess of 90 thunderstorm days per year, making Florida one of the most thundery regions outside of the tropics. Florida receives the highest density of lightning strikes within the United States. With thunderstorms and tornadoes prevalent across the entire state throughout much of the year, and the tropical storm exposure along both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, the impact of Mother Nature is not to be taken lightly when planning an outdoor event. These extreme weather variations present additional challenges to those individuals tasked with event coordination.

Spectrum was established with the goal of providing rain insurance, event cancellation insurance, and other specialty insurance solutions that are simple to understand and purchase, and with the highest degree of customer service in the industry. Spectrum serves events both large and small, including fairs, festivals, concerts, and other outdoor events impacted by weather. In addition to rain insurance, Spectrum provides liability insurance for events, as well as insurance for weather-based promotions. Spectrum also provides snow insurance to help protect against extremes in winter snowfall for snow removal contractors.
