Trade Show Emergency Kit: A Must Have for Every Exhibitor

Isn’t January the time when everyone plans on adopting new routines for the New Year? Such as actually using that planner or calendar, and adopting new ways to stay more organized? Planning ahead definitely has its benefits; one being saving you time later, when it’s most precious. Say, on the show floor.

Every trade show exhibitor should have an emergency kit. Ours, pictured right, isn’t pretty, but it is packed full of basic tools and products that have proven to be real life-savers during a trade show crisis. MacGyver would be proud.

So while every show and exhibitor have different needs, here’s what we have in our emergency kit to help get you started.
