Show Safety

As one of the world’s most celebrated and iconic destinations for global meetings and conventions, leisure visitors, major cultural festivals and national sporting championships, New Orleans welcomes millions of travelers and countless corporations and organizations each year.

Like any major city, New Orleans is not free from criminal activity. Crime incidents are mostly isolated and involve criminal-to-criminal interactions, primarily occurring in the outer neighborhoods of the city.

However, we still urge you to use caution while exploring the area:

  • Use common sense measures such as traveling in groups.
  • Avoid areas outside of known tourist destinations.
  • Be acutely aware of your surroundings and extra vigilant when out after dark.
  • Stay alert to any unusual activity and if necessary, report to nearby police patrols.

Be assured that the city of New Orleans works closely with the downtown police department to ensure extra patrol when large events like DEMA Show are in town.The extra patrols are precautionary and are meant to make visitors feel safe while enjoying this historic city.

Your safety is our priority, and by practicing these common-sense measures, you can enjoy your time in New Orleans while minimizing potential risks.

In the unlikely event of an incident, have a plan & be prepared.


  • Always be aware of the exits or escape routes around you
  • Leave your belongings behind
  • Evacuate regardless if others follow
  • Keep your hands visible
  • Do not attempt to move any wounded
  • If possible, help others escape
  • Prevent others from entering the area
  • Call 911


  • Hide in an area outside of dangerous activity
  • Lock door or block entry in the area if possible
  • Silence your cell phone immediately once in safe area
