What to Bring to a Gemstone Trade Show

I just love to go to Trade Shows. It is very exciting and overwhelming. You will have a must better experience if you are prepaid for this long event. Some designers stay for the 3 day weekend. I have gone to shows for many days in a row but I prefer to concentrate on one long day

I get everything prepared the night before a show, making sure that I have many copies of my tax ID available for vendors.  As much as I love these shows, it can be a very tiring and exhausting day. Bring a rolling suitcase and you will thank me for the suggestion. Rock are heavy and they accumulate fast

I stay for at least 6 hours and do not have to worry about lugging a heavy bag around. It makes all the difference in the world. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and shoes. This is a must if you want to have a great time.

Drink plenty of water while looking at all these gems. I have found that the water keeps me going and I feel so much better at the shows when I hydrate. I always pack a sandwich because I do not like eating snack bar food, but it is there for you if that is your choice.

They always have a coffee and tea stand which is great. Try to think of everything that will help you feel good all day while enjoying these incredible shows.
