Conference Attendance Tips Part 2: Packing

The 2010 Tribute and TrulinX User's Group conference is taking place next week. In Part 1 of our blog series we gave you some general tips on preparing for a business conference.

Here in Part 2 of our series we'd like to pass on some tips for packing. We gleaned these gems from this article, courtesy of Inc. Magazine online:

  • Lists, lists, lists. Don't just make one list of what to bring; make several.
  • Lug not what you can ship. More business travelers are taking advantage of the fact that it has become easier to ship things to and from a hotel.
  • Check the forecast. Before packing your clothes, check the long-range forecast to see what the weather has in store. 
  • Just the basics. Decide what you absolutely must pack and what can stay at home. Also look for items that can do double duty.
