Your MUST Have Show Smart Tool Kit

by Kat Shea 14. April 2011 18:19

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:

Handy Hardware:
Measuring tape, box cutter, scissors

Essential Electric:

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

Fabulously Fresh
Breath mints, Hand Sanitizer, Insoles, paper towels or clean rags, all purpose spray cleaner, carpet spot remover
