Barcelona is a safe city. Nevertheless, while you are visiting we suggest taking common-sense precautions as you would when visiting any major city, including carrying only as much cash as you need, keeping an eye on your personal belongings, both inside and outside the venue, and remaining vigilant in crowds, restaurants and on public transportation. Watch out for people creating distractions and diversions. Also, we strongly suggest you remove your badge when you leave the venue, so as not to advertise that you are carrying the latest mobile devices. However, if you do experience a security incident while in Barcelona, please call +34 900 77 2019, a free 24-hour security telephone number providing assistance and information during the event days. This service covers the entire city of Barcelona - not just the event venue - and the number will be printed on the back of your badge pass for easy reference. Making a report helps the city to ﬁght petty crime.
