NEW YORK--April 10, 2006--AIG Programs, a division of Lexington Insurance Company, a member company of American International Group, Inc. (AIG), today announced an Event Cancellation Insurance Program covering losses incurred when an event is cancelled for reasons beyond the insured's control. The Event Cancellation Insurance Program is administered by HCC Specialty Underwriters, Inc.

Coverage is available for all types of events held in the U.S., Europe and throughout the world, including trade shows, conventions, concerts, and sporting events of any size. The program can be customized to address exposures unique to conventions, such as the loss of revenue suffered if a principal scheduled speaker can not appear.

"Numerous incidents out of an event producer's control can impact the bottom line. This includes everything from a fire at the event venue, to a hurricane in the region, to a terrorist attack that occurs hundreds of miles away," said David A. Jordan, Senior Vice President of AIG Programs. "Event Cancellation Insurance allows companies in the event, sports, marketing and entertainment industries to address this significant risk," Event Cancellation Insurance can be purchased alone or as part of a TotalEvent(TM) suite of coverages, which includes Special Event Liability Insurance, Weather Insurance, and Prize Indemnity Insurance.
