Security Tips
Convention & Trade Show Tips

Since the tragic events of 9/11, security has been at the forefront of everyone's mind. We have daily reminders of it, but then we often overlook those same precautions at our trade shows and conventions. We are turning our events over to people we don't know. We trust them to look after our venues, booths and products and give them total access. When you are dealing with security firms, find out what it is that you are really getting. Here are some additional questions to add to your check list.


These are just some of the questions you will want answered in order to prevent any loss of merchandise, security risks or possible litigation. Johnson & Associates, your Nationwide Security Management Consultants, can handle these and other security issues for your event. For additional information on our services, call 1-800-496-0182.

Special Event Tips

Many planners assume that if the security agency has good references, a good listing with BBB or comes through a referral that the agency will be qualified to meet their needs. They are unaware that every venue is different.

Depending upon your venue, minimum insurance coverage can range from 1 million to over 5 million. Security companies generally carry a basic coverage of 2 million. You just need to make sure that they get additional coverage for that venue. Their insurance broker can explain to them how to do it, but you'll want a copy of their addendum to show to the venue. Otherwise you could be in for a rude surprise when the venue refuses to allow your security on site.
