Space Only Stands

Exhibitors booking space only sites are responsible for the construction of their exhibit which must meet all requirements of the exhibition and the authorities.  Each exhibitor is responsible for erecting a partition wall 2.5 meters in height between the exhibitor’s site and the adjoining site.  Exhibitors wishing to erect partitions exceeding 2.5 meters must obtain written approval from Diversified Communications (Security Expo).  Where permission is granted, the exhibitor becomes responsible for both sides of the partition wall above 2.5 meters.  It must be of solid construction, suitably decorated on the reverse side and to the requirements of the adjoining exhibitor but carry no advertising material where the elevation overlooks the neighbouring stand.

Shell Scheme Stands

Shell scheme stands include walls, carpet, lighting and fascia with the name and stand number of the exhibitor. Please refer to the Shell Specification to find out if your stand includes or does NOT include power.

The company name style is uniform, and the fascia may not be altered or covered in any way. Exhibitors shall be liable for any damages to the stand structure incurred during the exhibition.

Exhibitor Name Badges

Each person working on your stand requires an exhibitor badge. Exhibitor name badges can be collected from the Exhibitors Service Desk located on level 4, at the front of Hall 5 from 8am on Tuesday 23rd July .

Any staff working at the exhibition should tell the security guard their stand number and present a business card and they will be directed to the Exhibitors Service Desk to collect a badge.

Please ensure that you have Registered to avoid delays in getting these made up onsite.
Note: Exhibitor badges are non-transferable.

Work Health and Safety Check List

Work Health & Safety (WHS) is a major priority for Diversified Communications Australia and the venue.  Diversified Communications Australia will aim to create and maintain a safe working environment for all contractors, exhibitors and visitors.

To comply with these standards please note the following requirements in relation to your participation in the Expo.

In particular we have implemented the following:

  • The wearing of safety vests will be enforced by the organiser and security staff during move in and move out. It is expected that stand contractors will supply safety vests for their own staff. Diversified Communications will provide loan safety vests for exhibitors and will have a supply of these at each open loading dock and concourse door during move in and move out.
  • No children of 15 years or under will be allowed on site during move in and move out.
  • No open toe shoes to be worn during move in and move out in the exhibition centre or on the loading dock.
  • The consumption of alcohol is strictly forbidden during move in and move out.

Please ensure that if you are booking a SPACE ONLY site that you provide the name of your stand builder for custom built stands by completing the Stand Design Requirements Form. All Stand builders must forward a copy of their PLI Insurance, Workcover and WH&S policy to Diversified Communications Australia before they will be permitted on site.

Stand builders and contractors conducting high-risk works are to complete a venue induction before going onsite. Please email to get your company setup if it hasn’t been done so yet. If you company is already set up, please get in touch with your company administrator to have the induction link issued.

Clear Aisles

A number of aisles have been designated as clear ways for forklifts and pedestrians.  These will also be indicated on-site with signage.  In order to maintain a safe working site, no stock can be placed in these aisles and all aisles should remain clear as possible during construction and dismantling.

Click here to down load the current clear aisle floorplan.

Safety Vests

Exhibitors must provide their own safety vests for the move-in and move-out periods. It is mandatory that safety vests be worn on the loading dock at all times and in the hall during move-in and move-out periods or whilst any plant or machinery is operating.  There will be a limited number of used vests available for use located at all entrances to the pavilions.  Vests will be issued on a first come first served basis and must be returned every time you leave the bays.

Emergency Procedures

ICC Sydney recognises it has a responsibility to provide for the health and safety of Clients, Patrons, Exhibitors and Agents.

All Emergency services need to be coordinated through the Event security to ensure that the emergency vehicles are given the correct information. All security staff are qualified in First Aid procedures. For any first aid requirements please visit security on the show floor or go to the Organiser’s office where security can be contacted.

In the event of an emergency, one of two alarms may sound:

Alert alarm – “Beep! Beep! Beep!” This is a warning alarm to notify everyone of a possible emergency. If it sounds, please stand by for further instructions.

Evacuation alarm – “Whoop! Whoop!” This alarm means all occupants must evacuate. When it sounds, wardens will direct everyone to leave via the nearest exits quickly but calmly and assemble at the nearest evacuation point where they are to remain until ICC Sydney staff advise that it is safe to return.


Deliveries to your stand need to be carefully managed to avoid any delays or damage.

IMPORTANT – If you require access to the loading dock for delivering and unloading your goods, you must contact Agility to arrange a move in time.  If you turn up outside of your allocated access time you may be turned away at the Loading Dock.

  • The loading dock is strictly used for drop off/pick up of goods.  To keep the loading dock moving please move your vehicle away from this area as soon as you have finished unloading.  Parking is limited to 15 minutes on the loading dock area and cars may be fined if left on the dock for a period longer than this.  Please liaise directly with the loading dock staff should you require additional time to unload.  All vehicles under 1.8m will be directed to use the car park beneath the venue to avoid .
  • If you are using a courier company, please take care to attach a completed Delivery Label to each item. As most couriers will not leave goods without a signature we recommend that a member of your staff be present during deliveries.  The Organisers cannot accept deliveries on your behalf.
  • If you require a Forklift, please contact Agility to book a time. Forklifts may be booked on-site but there may be a delay and additional costs.  Hand trolleys may be borrowed at no charge from the Agility service desk.  Photo identification will be required to ‘borrow a trolley’.  For safety reasons, trolleys will not be allowed on the exhibition floor once the exhibition is open.
  • Deliveries cannot be made during the open hours of the exhibition. Exhibitors can gain entry 2 hours prior to the show opening each day for deliveries and re-stocking stands.

Show Attendee List Scam


Please be aware that the Security Expo has been the target of groups trying to take advantage of the event’s size and success. Some exhibitors are getting phone calls and e-mail messages from individuals offering all types of services from fake exhibition directories and attendee databases, to travel/hotel arrangements and transportation services.

The Security Expo  and its official vendors do not sell, rent or distribute attendee lists in any way, nor do we send e-mails via Gmail/Yahoo/Hotmail accounts. All official communication comes from a Diversified Communications Australia email account ( Any communication suggesting otherwise is not affiliated with Security Expo in any way. We recommend you do not click on any links from e-mails from these types of accounts or from any that look suspicious. All Div Com preferred suppliers are included within our exhibitor website and portal.


Your banner must fall within your stand area and must not encroach on aisle-ways or adjoining stands.  Double-sided banners must hang at least one meter in from the boundary of your stand.  To arrange the rigging of a banner please contact Clifton Productions


To avoid obvious disputes, the distribution of promotional material or samples must be confined to your own stand.  You are reminded that your exhibits and stand fitting must remain within the boundary of the space booked. Please design your stand accordingly as encroachment into the aisle will not be allowed.  Exhibitors are not permitted to distribute promotional material in aisles or at the entrance to the exhibition.  There is also a total ban on visitors canvassing within the exhibition.  Please let us know if you see either of these things happening near your stand and our staff will have it stopped.
