Ace the Tradeshow

Many of us need to travel to and within a tradeshow on an annual basis. Whether you’re a speaker, exhibitor, or guest, we all know that a tradeshow means a lot of walking and talking. The regulars understand that to survive a tradeshow one needs a great pair of shoes, the perfect non-wrinkle shirt, and a great bag. One of our Jetsetters travelled to the Magic Tradeshow, Las Vegas last August with the help from the Briggs and Riley Navigate Roller Case. This year's trip will be a breeze when packing for  the upcoming Magic Tradeshow, Las Vegas this February. 

With the need to commute between booths, carry samples, order sheets and brochures, the roller case was not only functional and convenient, but versatile and travel-friendly. Having carried this case as a carry-on during her flight from New York to Vegas, she brought her Mac, iPad, reading materials, and other accessory items neatly tucked into the multiple pockets of this bag. The padded compartments were great for power adaptors, USB drives, business card pockets, key keeper, and featured a deep-zip compartment for her files.

Once emptied and ready to be rolled across the magic show, our jetsetter used the iPad compartment to store her order sheets, and carried a change of clothes neatly tucked in the main compartment. She also assigned a separate compartment for client brochures so she could keep a track of who she met, and feel more organized at the end of the show. The bag was lightweight, and the interlocking handles made it easy for her to pick up and dig for the right stuff. When climbing stairs or taking escalator, the hind two wheels proved to be usefuland, and minimized her exertion at the show.The CordControl elastic loops were perfect to keep in place small items such as pens, earphones, and memory cards.  The CordPass is a great in-built feature that allowed her to organize her power brick and connect her cord to the laptop compartment.

All in all a real keeper, this Briggs and Riley case is a true essential to ace Magic or any other strenuous but successful tradeshow.
