Earlier in the year Jelf were selected as the appointed broker for an organisation that represents the rail supply chain, and organises the Rail Live event. And at the same time we were appointed to act for the largest rolling stock storage facility in the UK, whose extensive facilities host the event.
The activities and features of the event included:
- Live demonstrations of the latest equipment, products and services
- Rail Live’s famous Signalling Zone
- New rolling stock and locomotives on display
- On and off-track demonstrations and features
- Expert and innovations shows
At the event
As part of our appointments we were also instructed to arrange the liability insurance for the Rail Live event. While Jelf are one of the market leading brokers to the rail sector this was our first time exhibiting.
Experts from our rail team attended, including: our rail account executive and account handler; team manager; and rail claims manager; with support from our rail loss adjuster.
As exhibitors we wanted to meet with potential new clients to explain our distinctive approach and talk about our exclusive rail insurance products and services.
We also had opportunity to discuss new, less traditional, threats to the sector such as cyber liability, and Jelf’s wide offering in Employee Benefits and specific rail Risk Management.
The event was very successful and we met many professional companies we have not spoken to previously. It was clear that there is a need for a rail specialist broker that provides competitive and exclusive products delivered by insurance experts with a vast knowledge of the sector.
On the day we ran a competition to win a chance for an excursion on the Tornado steam locomotive and our freebies of pens, flashlights and chocolates proved extremely popular!
