- Leave a copy of your itinerary with family or friends at home
- Don’t use short cuts, narrow alleys, or poorly lit streets
- Try not to travel alone at night- if you have no choice, let a colleague know where you are going
- Familiarize yourself with emergency exits and procedures at the venue, and your hotel
