SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)– InsuraGuest, Inc.®, announced today a strategic relationship with Venture Insurance Programs® , in the United States, to provide hotels with specialized insurance coverage for guests who are staying in the hotel utilizing InsuraGuest’s proprietary InsurTech software.
