Security is provided in the exhibit hall and public areas at WEFTEC primarily to control access and to serve as an overall deterrent. Guards are not specifically contracted to watch over each exhibiting company's booths and goods. Neither WEF nor the security company are responsible for monitoring your belongings.

Exhibitors are advised to treat the exhibit hall as they would any large public area, safeguard small valuables such as laptops, computer tablets, etc., and be mindful of items like flash drives or memory cards and lead retrieval units. Whenever possible, small valuable items should be removed by the Exhibitor overnight for safekeeping.

Exhibitors are liable for all thefts, losses, and claims related to their participation in the Exhibit and should obtain insurance and liability protection appropriate to their circumstances. If preferred or required, an exhibitor may hire a guard from the contracted security company to guard their booth and belongings.

At any time during move-in, show days, or move-out, if you have a security incident, such as material damage or loss, please contact Show Management as quickly as possible. You may contact the Exhibition Management Office, a Floor Manager, or the Security Office.
