Are Self-Test Kits the Answer for New Travel Requirements?—As of Dec. 6, all travelers over the age of two — vaccinated or not and regardless of citizenship status — have to show proof of a negative COVID test taken within 24 hours of departure.

Meeting Planners Share Their Favorite Airports—Minneapolis St. Paul has the best restaurant options, excellent shopping, comfortable seating and lounging throughout all public spaces and it’s very close to the Mall of America for long layovers. Also, the attached InterContinental Airport Hotel has TSA, so those with carry-on luggage can proceed right from the hotel to the gate area without ever going outside.

10 Tips for Eating Healthy on the Road—Bring your own snacks rich in protein, such as almonds or peanuts, nuts, trail mix, or protein powder to mix with milk for a quick snack. The protein will help fill you up with less food, give you energy, build muscle mass and reduce cravings.

Where Can You Find Healthy Airport Food?—The Under30Experiences blog published a list of 30 healthy restaurants at the following airports ATL, CLT, CMH, DAL, DFW, HOU, IAH, LGA, JFK, and LAX.

7 Tips: How to Dress for a Meeting—Bring layers, as exhibit halls can be chilly. It’s always good to have a sweater, even if you are exhibiting in Vegas in July.

10 Travel Safety Tips for Women Business Travelers—Use the term “We” a lot when making small talk if you are traveling alone.

Follow These 5 Strategies on Your Next Long-Haul Flight—Any natural supplement that make you feel better while flying can help. Saline solution is great for dried out sinus, vitamins can help with fatigue as well as natural cough drops can sooth a dry throat. Try to avoid beverages that are dehydrating such as soda and tea and stick to lots of water.

12 Packing Tips for Our Readers—Instead of carrying perfume, soak one cotton ball per day in perfume, wrap them tightly in Saran wrap, then roll them in a Ziploc bag. They are so small and fit anywhere, and it eliminates the liquid issue.
