Road Warrior Hacks for Making Business Travel Effortless

Lifestyle & Culture

Whether you are traveling for business or leisure, working while on the road can become quite chaotic. However, thanks to technological advances and years of experience, the experts at LEO Events have discovered simple, effective tactics to stay up to date on all things work related. Keep reading for 5 of our favorite hacks:


1. Cyber-Safety

First and foremost, keeping your info and data safe while on the road takes top priority. Instead of connecting to public wi-fi, use your cell phone as a hotspot. We also recommend never plugging your devices into public outlets. The LEO team travels with Anker USB Charger Packs to avoid using airport and hotel outlets. These ports can charge up to 6 devices at one time.

2. Rocketbooks

LEO’s are big fans of Rocketbooks for taking handwritten notes. This special notebook and pen allows for your notes to immediately be converted and filed digitally – making it convenient to jot down a quick note and know it will automatically be stored to your computer for future reference. If you need more convincing, did we mention that the notebook is reusable?

3. Shelfpack Suitcase

“Unpack as soon as you hit the hotel. Having your hotel organized gives you a feeling of being at home and knowing where everything is located,” says Jim Dorroh, Sr. Technical Director for LEO. While packing and unpacking is not typically a task people enjoy, McKaba, a Santa Barbara based luggage company invented Shelfpack. The award-winning product is a suitcase that features collapsible shelves that pop up upon opening. Living out of a suitcase has never been more fun.

4. Comfortable Shoes

Event professionals know and understand the benefits of a really good shoe. When you are on site for so many hours, you will regret choosing the stylish choice over the comfortable. However, Rothy’s or Allbirds are great options for comfortable and fashionable shoes. We also suggest packing multiple pairs of shoes. Changing your shoes every day can help to alleviate some of the toll of being on your feet constantly.

5. Bleisure App

Traveling can take its toll on a body, so making time for self-care while on the road is important. Jack and Ferdi’s Bleisure (Business + Leisure) App offers five things to see, five things to eat, five views to enjoy, five authentic gifts, and five meeting and work spaces in each city. This can be useful when working in a new city. Make sure to take some time for yourself.
