Safety and security

Build-Up: Security

The Organiser provides general security (24 hours per day) for the duration of the show, and does not take responsibility for any items brought in by exhibitors, staff, agents, members of the public or any person whatsoever.

Only the Official Security Company is allowed representation at the expo. No private security guards will be permitted entry.

Safety during Build-up and Breakdown – “Hard Hats”

Safety regulations require that hard hats be worn at all times during build-up and breakdown of the expo by all exhibitors and contractors.

All companies doing specialized, double-storey or out of the ordinary stands require their own safety files, safety equipment and certification for rigging and building over 2.5 meters. (See Form No.2)

Please refer to our on-site Health & Safety File Checklist. Without the correct safety documents required, build up will not be able to commence.

Stand Security

Exhibitors who wish to arrange a dedicated security guard on their stands to complete Form No. 4 to order. Deadline is Friday, 3 May 2019.

Security Screens

Security Tips:

  • Be especially alert during build-up and breakdown – do not leave your stand unattended.
  • Escort goods to your stand.
  • Treat valuable goods such as prototypes as irreplaceable.
  • Ensure you have staff on your stand during show hours.
  • Cell phones, iPads, T.V’s, laptops, electronic devices and small items are particularly vulnerable to theft.
  • Do not leave valuable items in cupboards or drawers on your stand
  • Obtain proper insurance coverage for your goods during build-up, expo, and breakdown including transit to and from the show venue.
