Get Prepared for Exhibition Season – Keep Your Devices Secure with Maclocks’ Innovative Display Solutions

Exhibition season is just around the corner: with CES and NRF taking place in the US in January, and CES Europe in February, now’s the time to start thinking about effective hardware security solutions for your exhibition display devices!  

While it might be difficult to see beyond the holiday period (and those Christmas and potential New Year sales), not adequately preparing for a series of events with thousands of people, potentially hundreds of exhibits and various special events can really take its toll. 

Unfortunately, one thing that often falls by the wayside is securing your display products from theft. As a booth-holder, you are almost solely responsible for your booth’s security – the organizers and security officials patrolling the area are far too busy running the event to be as vigilant as you can be. 

Taking a few organizational tips and preparing beforehand can make all the difference between returning from exhibitions with a lot of sales and potential business, and coming back with less stock than you left with. Plus, that stock needs to look good and be functional: Compulocks has a range of solutions for both of these aspects, even for booth holders on a budget!

Secure Your Display Devices: Quick Tips and Solutions

Exhibitions present unique issues for securing expensive hardware and devices: for one thing, it’s impossible to bolt display devices down to the floor or secure them to the wall, as the exhibition hosts are unlikely to allow any permanent fixtures to be made to the event hall! 

At the same time, due to the high numbers of expected footfall, you’ll want your hardware to be seen (and touched, and experienced) by potential customers. Yet, with so much distraction and a focus on showing and selling, it’s only too easy for opportunistic thieves, working in the midst of the excitement, to make off with your goods. 

So, how do you keep your devices and products secure, while also having them on display? Some quick and easy substitutes include – 

  • Using smaller, table-based mounts instead of wall-secured mounts
  • Using heavier, floor-standing mounts, that will be more difficult for thieves to take, while still allowing for visitors to experience your products
  • Substituting screws for removable stickers – although, for heavier devices, this might be an unpredictable or insecure solution

Luckily, Maclocks is a hardware display and security solutions expert. It has a whole range of highly secure hardware solutions that are ideal for exhibitions, allowing exhibitors the flexibility for visitors to experience products, while giving them peace of mind that nothing can be stolen!

Secure Floor Stands

If, however, you prefer a floor-standing solution for your booth’s visitors, the Executive BrandMe iPad Enclosure Floor stand provides a double solution: providing secure, floor-based hardware solutions, while also offering an extra branding opportunity to your passersby. 

Compatible with iPad models 1,2,3,4, Air, Air 2, Pro 9.7 and iPad 9.7, the stand is constructed from tamper-proof aluminum compete with a brandable panel, allowing you to easily display your brand’s marketing material. 

Complete with a full reverse-tilting mount and even a secure storage compartment, the stand allows for continuous charging while mounted, and even full wiring and cable management. 

Universal Tablet Stands 

If neither of the above solutions is exactly what you need, the Universal Tablet Security Holder and Lock solution is a catch-all answer to your display issues. 

As a universal tablet stand, it has been designed and manufactured in-house by Compulocks to fit any and every tablet device, and keep it secured while on display. 

It’s ideal for exhibitions and can be glued to any surface – either with high-grade adhesive or with a temporary sticker. 

Featuring a standard tablet security plate and cable lock, and encased in lightweight aluminum, this security case had a fixed optimal angle display – which, although it may not be as flexible as other solutions, still maintains the exact same level of impenetrable security you’re looking for while providing a hands-on experience for potential customers.

While exhibitions are golden opportunities to focus on the bigger picture – generating more business via promotion and networking, – they unfortunately also offer thieves a wonderful opportunity for easy pickings.

With so many booth-staffers laser-focused on potential sales and passersby, thieves can delight in the potential for easily distracted staff members, who fail to protect their expensive hardware on display.
