In general as an exhibitor you’re restricted from using tools onsite due to contracted show labor agreements. But, we thought we’d recommend some show smart carry on items that you can tote to your next trade show. These ultra portable tools will ensure that you save time and money versus the added expense and hassle of acquiring them on-site.
Below is a checklist of items to pack for your next event:
Measuring tape, box cutter, scissors
Extension chords, power strips, extra bulbs wrapped to prevent damage during transit
Your Office Depot
Pens, highlighters, markers, lead cards, stapler, staples, tape (packing, double stick and duct), super glue
Your "Go To" Calendar:
Using your smart phone, netbook, or Ipad calendar for entries and notes from the show will save you time.
Bring Your Vcard
Business cards, corporate name tag
Breath mints, Hand Sanitizer, Insoles, paper towels or clean rags, all purpose spray cleaner, carpet spot remover
