Heath and Safety

Your safety is our number one priority. When visiting any new city, it is advised to use precautions and be aware of your surroundings. One of the most helpful things you can do when exploring a new city is to spend some time getting familiar with the area before you go and travel in groups.

For your general safety:

  • Please always wear your badge within the meeting location hotel. Your badge will be required for admittance to all meeting sessions.
  • If you witness an incident or suspicious behavior, call 911 immediately.
  • When calling 911, be sure to provide a detailed description of the individual(s) including approximate height, weight, clothing, or other unique characteristics.
  • Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Monitor any personal valuables while in transit to and from or while attending meeting sessions.
  • Travel with a companion whenever possible.
