The 2018 Corporate Travel Index published by the Business Travel News says companies spend on average over $1,400 for a three-day business trip.  However, even with the advancements of technology, this traditional method of face to face client interaction is still critical.

To help make the most of your next business trip, here are some suggestions from some of our most frequent travels who utilize Kevin Smith Transportation Group.

Rest During Your Downtime

Tradeshows can be hectic. Sometimes, though, there can be quite a bit of downtime. It could be long delays between flights, or canceled flights requiring you to rebook on a later flight. This often causes travelers a great deal of stress. But don’t fear downtime.

If your flight gets delayed, you might default to checking your email or doing other work. But it may actually be more productive to use this unexpected time to meditate or just let your mind wander. This kind of mental break really boosts your productivity and creativity.

Make a Trade Show To-Do List During Preparation

Some of the important tips for business travel pertain to how to be efficient when you need to bring things along. This usually is the case when you’re traveling to participate in trade shows and expos.

Preparation is the key to minimizing the stress of having to travel with big presentations and marketing materials. Make a checklist of things to do before you leave for the trade show.

Attend Networking Functions

Once you know your travel dates, look for networking opportunities at your destination. Check events around the area and find a way to squeeze one into your schedule, if possible.

You might want to consider extending another day if it also results in a lower airplane fare while acquiring new leads. Always be ready by having extra business cards on hand.
