Just giving her other stuff to do, and if she's spending time with you guys she's not spending as much time with him.

Another option, could you and your DH perhaps arrange to meet him first? I am not sure how you could arrange that without looking like some overprotective freak...but maybe that's not a bad thing. Lets him know that there IS someone watching out for her.
Her flight doesn't come in the first night until about 6:30, so the earliest she'd even get to my house would be 8ish. A bit to late to expect her to babysit after traveling. I have already talked her into dinner the next night and she's bringing the friend. He is aware she's got family here.
