TicketGuardian founders launch two insurance products for live events

The founders of live-events insurtech start-up TicketGuardian have announced the launch of FanShield and RegShield, two consumer-facing insurance products that give policyholders coverage for ticketed live events and registered events.

“TicketGuardian has grown substantially over the past two years. We continue to be committed to enhancing our coverage, and to serve even more attendees,” said Bryan Derbyshire, founder and CEO of TicketGuardian. “We’re growing our product set with FanShield and RegShield, so we can provide better, more affordable coverage to the right industries and for the right people. We believe FanShield and RegShield raise the bar in ticketing and registration environments.”

FanShield covers fans with tickets to live events. The policy protects ticket holders when one of several covered perils prevents them from attending the event. RegShield covers events that require registration, such as marathons, fun runs and conferences.

“Changing the way fans and registrants view the live-events space is our business, and the secret sauce to achieving that lies in our new products,” Derbyshire said. “FanShield and RegShield have each set a higher standard, greatly improving the overall fan experience – which is the reason we do this. We continue to develop the best technology and work with partners to refine and enhance our core value: technology and protection in an industry that is long overdue for a leg up in both.”
