HALL MONITORING

General surveillance of the show is the responsibility of comexposium and is carried out in the very best conditions, yet this is an obligation of means and not of results. The show's security company is aware of an increase in thefts and will ensure increased surveillance in the common areas.

Car parks are not monitored, objects of value inside vehicles must not be left out to ensure they do not attract interest.

 

STAND SURVEILLANCE

Exhibitors are responsible for their own stands and must take all necessary precautions to ensure their equipment is protected and removed in the evening upon closing if no surveillance has been put in place.

Imported goods must be cleared by the Customs Service before being placed on the Exhibitor's stand.

Please note: Stand storage rooms are not secure premises.

 

THEFT PREVENTION

Due to an increase in theft noted during the assembly, opening and dismantling periods, some basic rules must be applied by the exhibitor:

• Do not leave your personal belongings out (wallets, handbags, bags, etc.).

• Do not leave mobile phones unattended.

• In the evening, tidy away any valuable items (computers, laptops, tablets) in a lockable unit or take them home with you.

• During the assembly and dismantling periods, one person must continuously be present at the stand.

This person serves as your only guarantee against theft.

 

What do I do in an emergency?

Visit the Medical Centre located in Hall 5A, Aisle C, next to Booth 141. In case of a serious emergency, please dial 112.
