One of the coolest ideas at the PCMA Conference is the conference bag/shipping envelope sponsored by FedEx. It is a canvas bag with straps to carry your goodies around during the event. At the end of the conference, simply turn it inside out, fill it up and ship it home. Once it arrives home, you can turn it inside out once again and have a bag. Like magic!
Personally after I used it as a bag, I took it to the PCMA bookstore and filled it up with great meeting planning and business books (I could buy more that my suitcase would permit). Then directly to the FedEx desk for shipping (free to participants). Can't wait until my bag arrives back at the office to resume its life as a book bag!
