Terrorism for Art Galleries and Dealers – La Playa

TERRORISM INSURANCE FOR ART DEALERS

None of us like to contemplate terrorism, particularly experiencing it in our own country. But the reality of the 21st Century is it’s here and with the increased use of vehicles and lone shooters causing chaos on the high street, it’s a more tangible and rapidly perpetrated threat than ever before.

If an incident occurs, clearly your first concern will be for your safety and that of your loved ones. But have you considered what a terrorist incident in your area could mean for your business?

As a business owner, the government-backed insurance protection provided is different from what you have as a private individual.

Did you know, for example, that damage caused by a terrorist attack to private property is automatically covered by insurers in both the US and the UK and in the case of a major incident underwritten by the government, but damage to commercial interests are not?

Terrorism is most commonly defined as the ‘use of force or violence and/or threat for political, religious, or ideological purposes and with the intention to influence any government and/or to put the public or any section of the public in fear’. Along with cyber attack, nuclear damage, political violence and radioactivity, it is a standard exclusion on commercial business policies.

You need to opt in for terrorism insurance for your business to recoup your financial loss to stock and property and get your business up and running again quickly. It is also important to note that if you purchase Business Interruption insurance which reimburses you for loss of earnings or increased cost of working as a result of an incident, this is normally only as a result of a physical damage loss.

If your own premises or stock are not actually damaged by a terrorist attack you may well find yourself seriously out of pocket because your customers are steering clear of your gallery or even the entire neighbourhood. This can also happen in the event of a bomb scare or other terrorist threat, even if no actual incident takes place.

You need to consider whether your business will be affected by disruption to local infrastructure, road closures and services as a result. Cover for this may be purchased as an extension.

Depending on your circumstances, terrorism insurance for specialist art galleries and dealers can be expensive and hard to get hold of when not attached to a package policy. Make sure you’re talking to a broker who knows the market and can get you an all-inclusive Dealer’s package, or access quality stand-alone insurance.

Using Your iPhone & iPad Like a Pro, to Get More Followers and Sell More Art – workshop open to AWAD members and the public.

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

 

Workshop on MAY 1ST

The Association of Women Art Dealers and our partner for professional development, Be Smart About Art, is pleased to offer Using Your iPhone & iPad Like a Pro, to Get More Followers and Sell More Art! The workshop will be held on May 1st from 3:00 – 4:30 at the Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery on 46 90th Street, New York, New York.

We are all so used to pulling out our phones and tablets and just snapping away – whether they’re pictures of art, our pets, kids and dinner. Not all of those photo’s work for their intended purpose. Art business promotion and brand creation on social media platforms like instagram are now critical to success. Consequently, it’s increasingly  important for people to understand how to effectively use smartphones and tablets in art businesses today.

This information rich, practical and hands-on workshop led by photographer Chris E King will cover:

  • Tips on how pros use smartphones to snap and edit photos plus videos (including apps to use);
  • How to upload images and videos to social media / YouTube / other platforms;
  • Training to help you export images from your phone + back-up images so that you don’t lose them;
  • Trouble-shooting.

This workshop is open to all. To register follow this link to Eventbrite.
