Strange thing happens after tear down and before your exhibit leaves the show floor. Pieces of your exhibit (typically expensive stuff like computer monitors and plasma screens) often disappear, never to be seen again. Of course, you never figure out who’s responsible. What can you do to protect yourself – other than sit there and wait for your trucking company to arrive? After tear down, when your exhibit is most vulnerable to theft, shrink-wrap any loose contents to a pallet. (Black shrink-wrap is best so nobody can see what’s underneath.) This will make it more difficult for sticky fingers to easily grab your property.
