Please consider these security tips when planning your stand:

● Plan your arrival & departure from the venue during bump in and bump out. Ensure there are at least two representatives setting up and dismantling your stand, so that the stand is never left unattended during these vulnerable periods.

● Book sufficient staff for your stand during the show. This ensures it is always staffed. Do not ask a neighbouring exhibitor to watch over your stand while you go for a break – they may become busy and not be able to keep an eye on your stand.

● Place a lockable cabinet on your stand. Lock away briefcases, mobile phones, handbags, laptops, etc during the day even when you are on your stand

● Do not position desirable items at the front of your stand. They can be easily removed.

● Book a night security guard or hire an alarm or a night sheet. Remove high value items from your stand each evening.

● Avoid leaving your stand each evening before the show is clear of visitors. Likewise, ensure your stand is fully manned by the show opening – remember, however, the halls are open each morning, 2 hours prior to opening for maintenance.
