There are lots of reasons people go to face-to-face conferences. They want to network, learn something new or visit with particular people. Sometimes, they like to go for the travel. The world is a better place when folks travel and see something outside of their own backyards.
But there’s also indicators that can make your attendees a target. Here are a few tips to help your registrants have a better travel experience.
- Don’t wear name badges outside of the meeting
- Keep copies of IDs, credit cards and other important information in your carry-on or in your guest room. Include emergency contact info.
- Avoid walking alone, especially at night. And if you do walk alone, let someone know.
- Keep meds, important documents and a change of underwear in your carry-on when traveling.
- Back up your laptop before you leave home.
- When dining out, keep purses and backpacks at your feet, not on the back of your chair.
- Use the ATM at home instead of in a strange city.
- Don’t over imbibe. Keep an eye on your beverages.
