The Salt Palace Convention Center prides itself on the level of security services we offer to events. Our knowledge of the facility and creating effective plans for events within it is unmatched. Supervisors and the Security Manager make rounds throughout each shift to reinforce with each guard what is expected of them and to answer any questions that may arise. The Salt Palace Convention Center security staff consists of ten full time employees and fifty part time employees. All full time staff and those with key access permissions and responsibilities receive an ADP background check prior to hire. All shift supervisors are CPR trained and some possess their Utah EMT certificate. The Salt Palace Convention Center offers a high-tech surveillance system, with over 80 cameras that record data to a computer server that is backed up to an off-site location. Our staff is knowledgeable of all the ins and outs of the facility, with a direct line of communication to Emergency Services and an excellent relationship with the SLC police department if armed officers are requested for an event. As added convenience, security services are billed post-event to your final settlement.
The Salt Palace Convention Center requires that all public events, trade shows, and/or events of 1,000 or more attendees to schedule an onsite emergency medical technician through the facility. Additionally, any food function of 500 or more attendees also requires on-site emergency medical personnel. For the safety and convenience of all those involved with your event, we maintain a completely furnished First Aid Center in our facility. In addition, we recommend you consider staffing the First Aid Center during your move-in/move-out periods when your exhibitors are working on-site. During move-in and move-out, we have found injuries requiring medical assistance are more likely to occur. Charges for these services and supplies utilized are billed with your final statement. Please contact your Event Manager to order these services.
