CRAFT INSURANCE FOR JEWELLERY FAIRS - PPL INSURANCE
GoJD Connect provides a central hub for managing comprehensive craft fair insurance and membership options through The Guild of Jewellery Designers and The British Pearl Association. Our PPL policy is designed specifically for handmade jewellery makers and crafters and is also ideal for any other type of craft business.
Attending fairs and shows and having your own stall comes with its own set of risks and worries. The Guild of Jewellery Designers and The BPA have built the perfect policy for your jewellery making or craft business, all for the right price and with a whole host of extra membership benefits such as Supplier Partner discounts, website building and networking to name a few.
INSURANCE FOR UK FAIRS AND EXHIBITION SHOWS
Fairs and exhibition organisers in the UK often require proof of insurance before they allow you to exhibit and sell your products. The proof of your Public and Products Liability cover will need to show up to a certain limit of indemnity. The GoJD/BPA policy now provides £10,000,000 of PPL cover with our Gold Plus memberships and each member receives a customised certificate of insurance eligibility to show event organisers.
We understand the requirement for this and therefore, we ensure that your policy documents are easy to access and provide to exhibition organisers, saving you both time and effort!
Some insurers limit the number of exhibitions you can attend, The GoJD/BPA policy automatically covers you for an unlimited number throughout the year. This includes attendance to exhibitions, shows and fairs around the UK and worldwide.
IS PRODUCT AND PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE FOR A FAIR OR EXHIBITION A LEGAL REQUIREMENT?
When attending fairs and shows, organisers often require evidence of Products and Public Liability cover to exhibit. We can provide this service automatically and can also provide additional cover options through our broker should you need them.
The flexible nature of our insurance policy makes us the perfect choice for small and large companies.
If you’re interested in adding extras, like:
- Stock and equipment cover;
- Cover for your goods and equipment whilst in transit to and from the fair;
- Loss of Money
You can contact our broker directly to obtain a bespoke policy quotation for your business, no matter the size
SHOW AND EXHIBITION INSURANCE
Shows and exhibitions are a fantastic way of showcasing your products and talents directly to both the public and industry. By attending shows, you can gain great publicity and get your business noticed.
Not only do the industry’s leaders frequently attend shows, they’re also a great place to check out other people’s ideas and get inspiration. Copyright protection is another great feature offered by membership of The Guild of Jewellery Designers, Retailers and The British Pearl Association. Register your design ideas for evidence to be used in potential court proceedings to help with your claim or defence against a copyright infringement.
At The Guild of Jewellery Designers and The British Pearl Association, we can provide your handmade business with great value show insurance to protect you against potential losses to yourself and your business.. We provide a policy that covers you while you are there and whilst you are at your home or workshop, whilst teaching or general making.
There is no limit on the number of shows you can attend. Shows are an integral part of the UK industry, so we purposefully avoid placing limits on permitted attendances. We even provide cover for you at shows worldwide. (Cover is limited to UK residents only)

If your needs go further than PPL cover, our broker will aim to find out relevant details that can help them tailor a policy directly to you – they’ll learn about the products you create and the potential risks associated with your craft.
DO YOU PROVIDE ONE DAY PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE FOR CRAFT FAIRS?
Unfortunately, we don’t provide this cover, we only provide cover on recurring monthly, 6 monthly or yearly subscription. It is a good idea, however, to invest in annual insurance as you will then be covered for future events that may crop up at short notice. It will save you time and money in the long run, so it’s definitely worth it.
Getting a 12 month policy means that you don’t have to worry about arranging cover each time you attend a jewellery or crafting event. If you find an event you wish to attend at the last minute, you’ll already be protected and have the relevant documentation available to show event organisers.
