What things do you always take with you when you travel to an event?

Now I have to admit that I was checking in on one of the many LinkedIn groups that I’m a member of and came across this subject posted as one of the discussions.

It got me thinking about what it was that I couldn’t do without when I went away to manage an event. Personally, it was simple things like comfy PJs, two alarm clocks and the event file – my event bible. The PJs and alarm clock stay the same but the event file has turned into a laptop and iPhone!!

Professionally, I almost took the whole office with me. Being able to reach for scissors, blu-tak or post-it notes without having to leave the venue was just so important to me because my role on the day was event management and not SHOPPING!!

So I ask you: What things do you always take with you when you travel to an event?

If you’d like my events box checklist why not send me a message and I’ll either email it to you or I might even throw it up here as a blog post.

    Kent House note:
    This "comment" is typical of the blog spam approach used by many SEO firms to improve the performance of their websites and their clients' sites in search engine results. They post pointless and irrelevant comments on blog articles including a link back to the website they are trying to promote. It's a poor and unimaginative approach that just makes the SEO firm or - worse - their client look shabby. Normally, we delete this rubbish, but have left this one (albeit with the link changed) to help illustrate the point. We have blogged about poor SEO practices if you'd like to read more on the subject.

    I would like to have a detailed look at the checlist. It will also help me understand if anything is missing from my event checklist

    I always ALWAYS take with me my iPad. I am not quite sure how I survived without it! As an event planner it enables me to edit seating plans, email organisers and speakers, and it is light and small to travel with. Maybe you should substitute your iphone and laptop for just an ipad?
