Safety & Security

Your safety and security are important to us. For SOFIC, we continue to implement enhanced security measures. Here is what you can expect and should prepare for as you plan your SOFIC experience.

Registration Requirements

You must present a government-issued photo ID to pick up your badge on-site. Each person must pick up their own badge. 

Tips to Speed Up Your Entrance

Leave luggage, large bags, and bulky clothing at your hotel. No coat or luggage check will be available at the convention center.

Plan ahead! Allow extra time to enter show venues and arrive at meetings and events.

Bag Search & Security Procedures

For security purposes, first time access for all attendees to the Tampa Convention Center is via the Channelside Entry on the second level. Here you will go through security and are subject to bag checks. Once registered with your conference badge, you will be able to access all entrances.

Firearms

No personal firearms or ammunition will be permitted at SOFIC. The only firearms allowed in the Tampa Convention Center during the event must belong to Law Enforcement Officers or be on display by exhibitors whose firing pins have been removed and inspected.

Please Note: All large bags and pelican cases will be searched. Please be sure to leave sufficient time to get through security and registration.
