Pikl at HOST 2019

Pikl at HOST 2019


As the year draws to a close it’s been an exciting 2019 at Pikl with lot’s of highlights. We continue to grow the business, expand our team and most importantly to continue developing new products to help our customers participating in the growing sharing economy.

One of the many highlights was attending our second HOST event at the Business Design center on the 31st October - 1st November. Where has the time gone!

It was great to be an exhibitor at the event, giving us the opportunity to meet so many businesses, suppliers and customers involved in hosting.  We had some of our Pikl experts on our stand advising and guiding hosts on all their various insurance needs.  We know insurance is not something everyone wants to purchase but it’s so important that this is considered before you start hosting. There are some clear gaps in cover with traditional household insurance from many UK insurers which is why it’s always important to speak with a specialist in the sector like Pikl.  Just to highlight this gap please read our ‘Sharing Economy insurance report’ that we completed earlier in 2019.

The insurance talk was mixed with some fun by our caricaturist, who did a great job portraying many visitors as a caricature on our stand…including the Pikl team!


Our CEO Lousie Birritteri also had the opportunity to take part in one of the panel debates at the show regarding insurance, she provided her top insurance tips for letting out your property.  This was very insightful and hopefully beneficial for people just starting out in their hosting journey or even more experienced hosts that are unaware of some of the insurance gaps.

We look forward to returning to HOST 2020 but in the meantime why not check out Louise’s Top insurance tips before letting out your property
