Security Tips

London is a very safe city and crime is rarely a problem. However, visitors should still exercise caution when they go out. Most of the crimes in the city are theft-related, so take extra care to safeguard your valuables. Always use common sense when traveling.
Recommendations
  • Remove your congress badge when leaving the conference venue at all times
  • Leave your valuables at home or in the hotel safe. Do not carry or display large amounts of cash; carry only as much as you need. Use your hotel safe.
  • Safeguard your Laptop Computer at all times
  • When going out for any reason, avoid going alone in unlit areas
  • Be vigilant in crowds, restaurants, stations and on public transportation

Identification during conference

Make sure you bring a valid photo ID with you to pick up your badge and conference materials when the conference begins. Identification must match the name on your badge. We ask that you wear your badge at all times throughout the conference, including evening functions. Badges are required for access into all areas of the conference.
