Have you ever had to make an emergency run at a trade show for last minute items you forgot to pack? Or have you scrambled to find a reservation or order confirmation when something went awry? Here’s a handy trade show checklist for what to pack for your next trade show to prevent mini panic attacks.

In a Binder include the following important documents:

  • Hotel Reservations
  • Booth Reservation (if exhibiting)
  • Badge confirmation
  • Booth service orders confirmations & contacts
  • Itinerary for company personnel arriving separately from you
  • Show Schedule & contacts

If you are exhibiting include the following in a Tool Box:

  • Zip ties
  • Scissors
  • Packing Tape
  • Screw driver
  • Box cutter
  • Extension cord or power strip

In addition to a checklist, designate someone as the trade show coordinator to handle all the paperwork, packing details and as correspondence between show organizers and the company. Having a single person in charge also helps to maintain accountability, ensure deadlines will not be missed and emergencies can be knocked out in a matter of minutes in the event any pop up. This will allow for the sales team to spend their time focusing on building relationships and generating sales.
