The loading dock is utilized by the Venue and Events alike which makes it a vital access point for all. In order to meet essential requirements and expected needs, processes are in place to streamline usage. There may be limits on the number of bays and/or dock space accessible for unloading/loading as assignments are based on which area of the venue is being utilized by each Event. The Director of Security will work with each Event Manager to review Event requirements, Security Staff levels and placement, and designate unloading / loading spaces. The I-X Center Security team is the face of the dock; Exhibitors will be greeted and given a dock pass designating time limits and allowing access to specific unloading/loading areas.
