What Executive Assistants Need to Know for Conference Travel

June 8, 2022

Most executives don’t think about traveling until the day of an event. While this might be alright for local conferences, many executives must travel great distances to reach their destination. Conference travel can be exhausting and a lack of preparation can make the experience an absolute nightmare. In order to make your travel as stress-free and enjoyable as possible it’s important to consider the following tips.

Pack the Essentials

Before leaving, make sure that you have everything you need. Visit the hair salon, make sure the flowers are watered, and important items include business cards, conference identification, charging devices or adapters, credit cards and official identification. If you will be traveling a great distance, it’s a good idea to bring along a toothbrush, toothpaste, and other toiletries.  Also remember where you are visiting.  Are you visiting a manufacturing plant where you might need Bulk Nitrile Gloves or will you be outside where you just need a warm pair of gloves.

Decide Where to Stay

If possible, it’s best to choose the hotel provided by the host organization. This location has been chosen because it is close to the event. Staying in the host’s hotel provides an excellent opportunity for networking with other attendees.

Make Smart Choices When it Comes to Food

It’s easy to opt for convenience foods when traveling. However, eating healthy will help you feel better and be less stressed during conferences. Before arriving at your destination, check the online menus of local restaurants. Consider making a list of suitable choices.

Plan Your Agenda

Planning is an essential part of getting the most out of any experience. This is especially true for corporate events. Most conferences offer numerous meetings, guest speakers and seminars. Determine which sessions are most appropriate for your specific needs and be sure to leave enough time for in-house networking before and after gatherings.

Choose a Reliable Transportation Service

When traveling to a conference you will need to choose a service that offers friendly, professional and reliable service. An experienced transportation service ensures that you will arrive on time, comfortably and well-prepared for your conference.
