SWANApalooza 2017 Safety & Security Tips for Exhibitors

  • Always remove your badge once you leave the facility.
  • Never leave small electronic equipment such as laptop computers, cell phones, and personal hand-held electronic devices unattended in your booth, ESPECIALLY OVERNIGHT. This rule should also apply to personal items such as briefcases, purses, etc.
  • Shipping cartons should not identify contents. Use coded labels.
  • Do not ship DVD players, laptops, PC’s and other electronic equipment in the manufacturer’s cartons. Consolidate shipments of several boxes into one large crate or carton, if possible.
  • Empty cartons and crates are not stored in a “secure” area. Therefore, do not store valuables in them.
  • For those exhibits featuring theft-prone products some thought should be given to displaying a replica or bringing extras.
  • Cover your products before and after show hours. Use Velcro or grommets to secure the fabric over the products.
  • Mark all crates and cartons with your company’s name and address.
  • When your crates have been returned to your booth for move-out, make certain all items are accounted for.
  • At the close of the exposition and after your materials are packed, turn in your bills of lading at the Exhibitor Service Desk. Do not leave them in your booth or attached to crates. Stay with your equipment, if possible.
  • Report any loss or damaged cartons to Show Management and to the Security Supervisor immediately.
