The city is an ideal location for an event of this size- all facilities are easily accessible, and the city provides a safe and therefore conducive environment for business. Even though Orlando is a very safe city, you should take the following steps whenever you travel:
- Make a copy of your passport, and pack it in a place separate from where you are carrying the original.
- Leave a copy of your itinerary with family or friends at home.
- Be especially cautious at crowded subways, train stations, bus stations, tourist sites, market places, festivals, and crime- ridden neighborhoods.
- 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.
- Avoid public demonstrations and other personal matters with strangers.
- Try not to wear conspicuous clothing and expensive jewelry, and do not carry excessive amounts of money or unnecessary credit cards
- Familiarize yourself with emergency exits and procedures at the venue, and your hotel
