If you’re planning to stay overnight, we’ve come over all fancy travel blogger and put together a few handy tips for making sure you enjoy the experience.
Santa Claus is onto something here. Make sure you get together a basic list of the things you need to take. As you go through your regular routine at home, write down the things you use. It sounds obvious, but there is a reason hotels tend to keep toothbrushes and razors around. And you do not want to spend your first day at conference hunting through shops for socks.
You may have heard this said before, but make sure you only take what you really need. The law of averages prevails when it comes to travel. It is incredibly unlikely that the weather will change so much that you find yourself I a completely different season or climate in the space of 3 days. It could happen, but you should be fine without taking your entire wardrobe. And roll rather than fold your clothes. Less creasing, less room required.
Following on from the above, this may sound obvious but make sure you know what the weather will be doing. Have faith in those whose job it is to follow weather patterns around and don’t pack “just in case” clothing items.
Almost everything needs charging these days. Make sure you pack all the necessary cords, extensions and adapters and keep them together in a small bag so you can keep track of everything.
Make sure you have all your prescriptions filled, and take a small travel first aid kit. You just never know when you might get a headache or a sunburn (yes, even in Scotland in March) or cut your finger, so having a few basics around will save you from having to find these things in a strange city late at night.
Also make sure you keep your emergency contact details on your phone (save as a note and set to your lock screen background so it’s easily accessible) or just on a piece of paper in your pocket or purse.
The above tips should help you get organised so you can attend conference and get the most out of your time there without worrying about those pesky small details.
