Safety and Security
WEF works hard to provide a comfortable and safe environment during our meetings and events, including contracting with private security firms and off-duty police officers when required. Your help also is needed to provide a safe and secure environment. WEF recommends that you follow these safety guidelines:

  1. Share your plans. Advise a family member or friend of your travel plans, including the dates you will be gone, how you will travel to the meeting or event, and where you are staying;
  2. Protect your identity. Wear your name badge only inside the meeting or event venue; remove and secure your name badge when going to and from the venue; when disposing of your name badge, scratch out or destroy your name and/or the QR code to protect your personal information;
  3. Plan for an emergency. Be aware of your surroundings. Know where the nearest exists are located. Use the buddy system. Exchange contact information with another event attendee. In case of a venue evacuation, agree where you will meet up. Call for help if your buddy doesn’t meet up at the agreed location within a reasonable amount of time.
  4. See something, say something. If you see something that raises a safety or security concern, please follow the instructions printed on the back of your name badge to alert security personnel.

Reporting Concerns
