Important Safety Tips

Follow these simple tips to ensure a fun and safe visit in San Antonio.

  • Never walk or travel alone, and be aware of your surroundings as you walk to and from the convention center. If you see something suspicious, don’t hesitate to alert security.
  • Remove or conceal your name badge when leaving the convention center.
  • Demonstrators seek media attention. Some may try to provoke a confrontation, which produces prime visuals for TV cameras. Don’t give them the satisfaction of reacting; remain calm and cool. And never make physical contact of any kind with an activist or demonstrator—they could file a lawsuit against you for assault or battery.
  • Do not participate in news interviews, particularly in the presence of TV cameras. Refer all requests for interviews to AALAS staff, who will alert an official spokesperson.
