For Your Safety

When you are outside you should:

  • Get directions before leaving the hotel or restaurant.
  • Take taxis or shuttles you recognize.
  • Walk with another person. Single targets are the most likely victims of crime.
  • Not wear your badges or carry conference bags. Both identify out-of-towners.
  • Avoid dark, isolated areas, such as closed plazas and apparent shortcuts back to the hotel.
