  • Show security guards will be on duty 24 hours a day from move in to move out. However, show security should not be relied upon to provide more than a presence to inhibit theft.

As an additional safeguard, exhibitors may hire security service to provide exclusive security for their booth. Check with your insurance provider for information on an inexpensive Show Exhibiting Insurance Rider.
