Anything can happen in an actual trade show. Your booth designs can go wrong, your products can get broken, your giveaways might get lost, etc. The point is, you have to be prepared for the unexpected. One way to avoid trade show disasters is to always bring your trade show emergency kit. Your trade show kit should be handy, convenient and has everything you need for disasters that might come your way.

Here are the tools you’ll need for a disaster-proof trade show event:

Office Trinkets – Include extra business cards, pencils, pens, markers, highlighters, tape, staplers, scissors, papers, rubber bands, notepads, glue sticks, paper clips and clips.

Heavy Duty Tools – Just in case electricity goes down or some technical glitch happens your way, bring a flashlight, screwdrivers, a hammer, measuring tape or anything that might be great help for your trade show needs.

Cleaning Materials – For spoiled liquids, dirty floors, mud pools – always bring your cleaning materials such as paper towels, adhesive removers, carpet stain remover, bleach, cleaning wipes and a mini wiper.

Extra Exhibit Part and Pieces – If your exhibit products go awry, it might be handy to bring replacement parts, light bulbs, connectors, double sided tape, Gaffers tape and other repair tools your exhibit might need.

Miscellaneous Items – Anything you or your booth staffers might need. For example, breath mints, tissue, sewing kit, eye drops, first aid kit and some basic over-the-counter medicine such as Advil, Tylenol, Valium, etc.

Organizing your own trade show emergency kit can take only 30 to 45 minutes depending on the availability of resources. The best part here is that you can still reuse them come your next exhibit. Just make sure you change some of the tools depending on your show’s specific needs.
