Have You Packed These Items For The International LCT Show?

Posted on February 26, 2016 by - Also by this author - About the author

Nobody likes having to buy overpriced items at the airport or hotel because they were too busy to remember to pack some aspirin or gum. LCT Contributing Editor Jim Luff has created a list of “Must Haves” on your packing list.

In the electronics department, make sure to bring plenty of charger cords for whatever phone or portable electronic devices you plan to have on hand. Although your cell phone camera might have great resolution, it doesn't hurt to have a digital camera on your person as backup. Other items to remember include ear buds, a few USB sticks, and a portable wireless mouse.

If you plan on taking notes at various events (which is always a good idea), remember to pack supplies like 3 x 5 index cards, large and small note pads, pens, pencils, a Sharpie, highlighters, paper clips, scotch tape, and binder clips. DO NOT FORGET TO BRING YOUR BUSINESS CARDS!! Networking opportunities abound!

Unfortunately, you never know when you might get the sniffles or accidently cut your finger. Assorted band-aids, gauze pads, and butterfly closures are good ideas. Various medicines like Pepto Bismol and Immodium tablets, aspirin/Tylenol, and cough drops come in handy when you least expect it. If you suffer from asthma or diabetes, make sure to pack your inhaler or glucose test kit.

Remember, even if you don't catch cold, the background casino smoke, dry desert air, and gradual dehydration can leave you raspy. Drink plenty of water, even when you're not really thirsty.

Personal necessities, including Clorox wipes, Stridex face wipes, hand sanitizer
moist toweletts, mints, and dental floss will help keep you looking and smelling clean and professional.

Emergency preparation items such a lighter, Swiss Army Knife (be careful around the TSA), mini flashlight, zip ties, ear plugs, and spare change are smart to keep in whatever bag will NOT be coming with you as a carry-on.

Unfortunately, as is the case with the common cold, there still is no absolute cure for a Vegas-style hangover. But you can take the edge off one with lots of water before bedtime and a big, greasy, protein-laden breakfast in the morning with plenty of coffee.

Happy & Safe Travels!
