Security Tips

The Artist Project is staffed during the day in the exhibit hall from set-up day through tear-down and building security is in place overnight. In addition to this protection, however, we strongly suggest that you take the following precautions:

  • Wear your badge during set-up and tear-down to help identify anyone who does not belong in the hall.
  • Do not leave your keys or valuables (such as purses, cash boxes, or artwork) in your vehicle at any time.
  • During show hours, keep your personal items such as purses and briefcases locked up and out of sight from the public. They should not be left behind walls or underneath tables since this is the first place that is targeted. The safest option is to keep your cash and credit card receipts in a money belt or pouch that you wear.
  • Do not leave any cash or credit card slips in your booth overnight. Please take them with you.
  • We recommend that you close off the front of your booth each night with tape, cloth, mesh, netting, etc. that will discourage anyone from entering your booth when you are not there.
  • Walk to and from the hall with someone, especially if carrying large sums of money.
  • Make daily bank deposits
  • Report suspicious behaviour to the Information Desk immediately!
  • Do not leave your booth unattended, not even for a second during show hours. At show closing, do not leave immediately – please wait until the public clears the floor.
  • Insure yourself for the duration of the show for protection from things like theft, damage, bodily injury, and other hazards.
  • Walk to and from the hall with someone, especially if carrying large sums of money. Upon request, Exhibition Place Security Services will provide a security escort to anyone who does not feel comfortable walking to their mode of transportation. Make arrangements by calling Exhibition Place Security Services at 416-263-3333. Advise the operator of your request for a security escort, provide your name, description and location, and wait at your location for Security Staff to attend. Please be sure to schedule your security escort early in the day.
  • Authorize each credit card purchase while the customer is in your booth to avoid dealing with declined authorizations.
  • The Art Storage area has monitored and limited access before, during and after Show hours. You must check in with the attendant to have access to your storage spot.
