IMM 2018 Is Arriving And We’re Packing In Our Heads Already! But To Make Sure We Won’t Leave Anything Super Essential Behind, Let’s Make A Proper Travel Checklist! Let’s Get To Work!
To Travel Is To Live, so they say, and we couldn’t agree more! Don’t you just love that certain feeling of freedom allied to an irresistible will to get to know everything and simply entail in that country’s culture? It might be just me, but I when travel, the worlds get better, it just does!
Lucky for us, IMM 2018 in Cologne is arriving which means, issues should be resolved and a suitcase needs to be prepared! To make sure we don’t forget anything from our travel essentials list, we’ve prepared you a super complete travel checklist to rock IMM Cologne!
1st Check: Pre-Though Outfit Will Save Your From A Cold!
The worst part of packing is always choosing which clothes will have the honor to have their own spot in your suitcase! This might look easy, as we’re heading for glacial cold in IMM 2018, but whenever there’s negative degrees outside, there’s a tropical weather inside! Meaning, you’ll go from -5 to 25 degrees in 2 seconds, so please note this not to catch a cold!
Chose your outfits wisely, bear in mind the unbearable cold outside and the extreme heat inside IMM Cologne, and for the love of God, try to take wearable and comfortable outfit whilst keeping it sophisticated!
Do you think you can do this? Awesome, then we’ve just managed the first check in our travel checklist!

2nd Check: Extreme Cold Calls For a Warm Coat!
Well, in the aftermath of the last check in our travel checklist, I believe you’re not quite getting how cold will it be in Cologne once you’re in there for IMM 2018! I know I’ve said it already, but THE most important check in our travel essentialslist is, undoubtedly, a super warm coat, a really warm one, ok?
The reason why we’re paying so much attention to this detail, is ’cause we know you’ll be more concerned about looking good than being warm, and I understand you I’m committed that mistake before and trust me, no one looks good with a Rudolf nose due to a very strong cold!

3rd Check: Long-lasting Make-Up Will Save You From Disaster
Why, you ask? I’m guessing you’ll be spending the whole day, walking around from one side to the other, illuminated by all the light from the showcased chandeliers and dealing with all those temperature variations, am I right? Good, so you’ll need a back-up plan, your normal make-up routinewon’t last the whole day!
4th Check: Avoid Your Worst Nightmare and Take A Power-Bank!
One of societies’ worst nightmare nowadays is running out of battery, and unfortunately, I must admit I’m one of those people whose battery is ALWAYS dead! The most ridiculous thing is that I actually own a power-bank, but am too lazy to even charge that, I know!!
So, as you’re heading to IMM Cologne to do some networking, having battery on your cell is more than essential, I dare to say that without battery you better head to the Hotel and take the afternoon for you! So, let’s avoid this, shall we?
When packing your suitcase, make sure you place a power bank there, maybe you should place 2, just in case!

5th Check: Capturing The Most Important Moments Will Make You Happy
Although your only purpose to go to Cologne is attending IMM 2018, it doesn’t mean you can’t take the spare time to get to know the city, they say it’s something you need to see! If you decide to take a few hours just to get involved in the German culture and to fall in love with Cologne, then I’m guessing you’ll want to capture the best moments and landscapes, right?
This being said, I think taking your camera with you is crucial, independently if you’re going on vacations or for professional matters!
Imagine you’re waling around IMM Cologne and you see some lighting fixture you really really want on your next project? Will you be taking pictures with your cell? The quality isn’t nearly the same, so that’s why the cameras exist!
This means that, in order to have a proper travel checklist and to make sure you’ll have everything you need on your suitcase, you need to go online and check the IMM map!

7th Check: If The Phone Doesn’t Work, Have a Notebook, Just In Case!
We’re finally heading to the end of our packing list, which means we’ve already covered the most important things you should pack when going to Cologne 2018! There’s just one little thing missing, that most people forget when they travel and in your case, it might be life changing!
Even thought we all have phones and we normally storage all the information there, it might be important if we take a notebook and some pens, they can be the nabbed from hotels, to make sure you write down everything you need and you attach and keep all the business cards that were given to you!
