The confusion that reigns during an event is the best opportunity for the sticky-fingered to make off with your kit and your exhibits. Theft is not just a problem during peak attendance times; it can also occur overnight, as well as when the booth is being constructed or dismantled. For that reason, you must implement an effective monitoring regime at your stand, especially if you are exhibiting valuable items.
You can’t be everywhere at once, so make sure that you have insurance in place to cover the event. You can combine this with goods-in-transit insurance, which may reduce the payable premiums. If you visit several events per year, you can also combine the insurance with other policies; otherwise, it’s rarely worthwhile.
Generally, exhibition halls don't provide any overnight security. Organizing your own security for the stand can still be worthwhile. That applies especially if your exhibits are particularly valuable and can't be stored in your booth's secure, lockable storage. Professional security guards offer a range of services around the clock and provide you with the reassurance that you won't lose out as a result of the exhibition. Services generally include:
Stand security can also be provided when the stand is being constructed or dismantled. In fact, it should be. The take-down phase is especially critical, as everyone is in a rush to head home. This means that people pay less attention. In addition, hardly anyone pays any attention to neighboring stands. Nevertheless, this security measure should not be underestimated during events. Keep a couple of colleagues back, and, instead of tasking them with dismantling the stand, have them watch over it instead. If this is not possible, bring in professional security at this stage as well.
