The YHE Travel Survival Guide

Event Planners are constantly on-the-go. Travelling is no doubt an exciting part of this career, but it can also be an overwhelming one. Sometimes you have to mentally pack so you spend as little time as possible actually doing it before or after work, with a 50% chance of forgetting a necessity like your toothbrush, comfiest shoes or portable charger. Never mind having time to research “things to do” or “where to eat” wherever you may be going. On the flip side, if you have time, you likely over pack as you dive into your what may seem, bottomless closet and think “I might wear this”, only to end up wearing 25% of what you packed and wishing you left room in your luggage to bring home new things.

YellowHouse Events is based in Toronto but the team can be found all over the world executing experiences for our amazing clients.  From roadshows in NYC, Atlanta, Chicago and L.A., to rocking out in Nashville, to surfing the waves in Hawaii, some of us may go as far as to say we’re experts at packing. Just this past weekend, Trevor from the YellowHouse team made a quick trip to St. Lucia to ensure to test the waters and complete his research for an upcoming incentive program.  Travelling for work encourages us to use our organizational skills and think strategically more than we already do. For instance, have you heard of creating an Excel spreadsheet to help you pack light and efficiently?  

With all this being said, the YellowHouse team has compiled a list of our top tips and tricks and share this travel survival guide to get you ready for your next trip.
