Great article! Thanks for sharing. To make traveling to trade shows easier, I highly recommend lightweight trade show displays that are easy to pack up. Pop up displays are a popular choice because they fit compactly into a shipping case and are also lightweight, reducing shipping and freight costs.
Another idea I would suggest to make your trip run smoothly is to make lists before you travel. Have one list that includes everything you need for the event and airport, such as passports, name badges, and promotional literature. Also, have a list of your staff's phone numbers just in case you need to call them once you are at the show.
