Road Trips & Backyard Shindigs! | The Changing Landscape of Breweries, Wineries & Event Exposures

Join us for an interactive education+social event...expand your knowledge on commercial and personal liability risks as they relate to breweries, wineries, and on-site events, while re-connecting with industry colleagues!

Craft breweries and wineries are popping up as great local businesses, both in the city and in rural Ontario, offering exciting day trips, tours, as well as the opportunity to "taste from home."

Educate consumers on risk management strategies?
- Stay Updated on 
what the legal duty owed to the consumer is?

Participants will gain the latest knowledge and trends on the topic, as well as get to look "behind the scenes" of a brewery, at the same time meeting insurance colleagues in a safe and welcoming environment. Don’t miss it!
