Expecting to take 700,000 people over the seven days of shows to the City of Rock, in the West Zone, the edition of Rock In Rio 2022 starts this Friday (02.09) with great expectations for the performance of the English heavy metal band Iron Maiden . In large events such as RiR, with a significant agglomeration of people, one of the concerns of producers and the public itself is related to the number of occurrences, with possible accidents and even acts that lead to police interventions. In the last edition of the festival, in 2019, the Civil Police of Rio de Janeiro registered 719 cases, the majority referring to cell phone theft, loss and misplacement of documents.

“Given the large number and agglomeration of spectators in an event the size of the RIR, the natural carelessness of people in relation to the possession of objects and equipment facilitates the action of thieves. In this situation, it is very important that people keep the objects they carry and that are usually exposed, especially cell phones, well kept. Clothing pockets and wallets and purses must be closed, stowed and secured against attempted theft – one eye on the show and the other on the belongings! Any carelessness will give rise to annoyance”, suggests and warns Ronaldo M Vilela, executive director of the RJ/ES Insurance Association.

Despite the protections and guarantees of insurance indemnities, contracted and offered by the organization of the RIR, its attendees and the professionals who work at the event must be careful to avoid theft and losses. Among the coverage related to major events, the following stand out: other electronic equipment, such as sound and photography, material and bodily damage to third parties, damage to or theft of vehicles parked at the event site, collapse or fall of the structure, fire or explosion, the non-attendance of artists and even the death of a regular.

“The insurance also covers, for example, the losses suffered by the organizer of the event if a hired artist does not show up for his presentation”, explains Ronaldo M Vilela.

With the recovery of the economy, the type of insurance for events gained strength among producers. According to the Brazilian Association of Promotional Marketing (Ampro), the cost of contracting insurance is around 1% of the total value of the event.
