Conference season is almost upon us, and the team here at IVF Bioscience is busy packing for our upcoming exhibitions and workshops. With travel on the mind, we thought we’d share our favourite travelling tips and tricks. Which of these are missing from your travel routine?
1. Download an offline map of your destination ahead of time
If you’re going where the internet is slow, mobile data is expensive, or you can’t get online, you can save an area from Google Maps to your phone or tablet and use it when you’re offline. You will need to be connected to the internet to save these maps to your device, but once they’ve been downloaded you’ll be able to access them anytime, and navigate with ease.
2. Dress for the fridge – for good reason
One of the downsides of flying is that airplane cabins are often kept at very low temperatures, so it’s worth remembering to take plenty of layers.
Did you know that you can take an empty water bottle through security at the airport, then fill it up on the other side? Yep, take it through and refill for free at a water fountain or in most airport cafés. This tip has multiple benefits, as by not buying a disposable bottle you can save money and reduce plastic waste. Plus, you’ll reduce the physical symptoms of jet lag by staying well hydrated during your flight.
4. Bring a taste of home
As Brits, we find it hard to function without a proper cup of tea, so will often take a few tea bags on trips away. Having something familiar can also be really comforting, so maybe pop in a chocolate bar or a few sweets too, especially for longer trips.
Will you be joining us at any of our upcoming conferences?
We’ll be exhibiting at the AETE meeting in Bath in September, and at the AETE-ACTE/CETA meeting in Orlando in October. You can drop by the stand at either conference to discover how the IVF Bioscience team can support your transition into IVF.
Plus, our upcoming workshop schedule includes slots as part of the Pre-conference Repro Day in Bath and a stand-alone IVF workshop during the Orlando meeting. Both sessions are designed to provide an insight into what goes on inside ‘the black box of IVF’ – perfect for anyone new to the technology, and those looking to improve their current knowledge.
