A Few of My Favorite Things (to have Onsite at Events)

Whether you're getting back to in-person events now, or you've been back in-person for months, having a properly packed supply bag is crucial to feeling at ease when onsite. I know because I left two of my very favorite things behind recently and vowed to keep them in my computer bag, not my SUITCASE, since I either take a carry on OR check a larger suitcase but rarely need both. Lo and behold, I had to check a full size suitcase and my necessities were in my carry on suitcase. At home.

The video walks you through each of these items and why I love them. You can either watch the video, or you can go the route the rest of the Event Garde team goes: whenever I buy something, I tell them and without question, they add it to their own travel bags because they just know it will be worth it. So you can trust me, trust them, watch the video for more convincing, or just click below, add to cart and have the items before your next event.
