Always remove your MWC badge as you exit the venue Do not display large amounts of cash; carry only as much as you need Keep your personal belongings with you, both inside and outside the venue Be vigilant in crowds, restaurants and on public transportation; watch out for people creating distractions and diversions When walking around the city, know how to get to your destination in advance so you appear confident in where you are going

It is especially important to follow the above security recommendations in heavily populated, tourist areas

Reporting incidents helps the city to fight petty crime

For your convenience we have teams of motorcycles available to travel wherever you are and offer personal assistance by accompanying you to the nearest police station, completing any paperwork needed to report an incident, replacing your documentation, and cancelling your credit cards.
