CDS Meetings & Events
While show management will exercise reasonable care in safeguarding your property, neither the meeting management, facility, security coordinator, drayage contractor, nor any of their directors, trustees, officers, agents or employees assume responsibility for such property.
Exhibit merchandise and displays are prime selling tools. Exhibitors should take every precaution to protect this material. A few security tips:
Should the exhibiting company decide to hire its own private security, CDS has an official security vendor Armageddon. The security vendor form will be provided in the Exhibitor Services section online. Security cages may also be rented from AMK Systems, Inc. at 773.735.1600.
CDS will maintain security during the official dates of the meeting. Limited security will be provided throughout tear-down. However, the exhibitor is responsible for securing its own exhibit materials and/or merchandise once the exhibits officially close at 4 p.m. Saturday, February 28, through the final removal of the exhibit materials on Monday, March 2. Any material that is left in these areas after the designated storage area will be required to submit a bill-of-lading to the point of origin or returned to the Freeman warehouse and charged accordingly.
Do not leave merchandise unattended in your booth during the move-out. CDS, the McCormick Place Complex and the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority will take all reasonable precautions against damage or loss by fire, water, storm, theft or strikes or other emergencies, but do not guarantee or insure the exhibitors against loss by reason thereof.
