Summer Safety for Outdoor Vendors

Vendor booths set up at outdoor festival

It’s summer, and that can mean one of the busiest, most productive times of all for the vendor. Whether you’re following festivals with your food truck putting up a booth to showcase your wares at a local fair, or traveling to a business convention, you need to find ways to beat the heat and make your summer booth a success.

Because planning a trade show can get hectic, here are a few of the most important things to remember in summer safety for outdoor vendors. Don’t make a rookie mistake, follow the tips below to stay cool and keep comfortable.

Bring extra water bottles

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things when it comes to summer safety. The heat can really begin to take it out of a person, and that’s why it’s so important to not only bring extra water bottles—make a goal to drink extra through the day, too. The worst thing you can do is get too busy to drink water and then deal with the effects of dehydration on your big day.

Wear white or other light colors

Wearing black is a timeless and sophisticated statement, but an outdoor event is not the time to wear dark colors. If you’re making t-shirts for your team or planning what to wear, opt for light colors that reflect the sun’s heat, and you’ll feel cooler even when the temperatures rise. Bringing along a lightly colored hat will also keep the heat off your face and keep your temperature down. Don’t worry, you can look cool in light colors, too.

Bring a first aid kit

From scrapes and cuts, there are a lot of little accidents that can happen, especially if it’s a family-friendly event. Keeping a first aid kit around will make you a hero when it comes to handing out the necessities to help a parent deal with a minor bump or skinned knee on the pavement. You never know when you or your team will need it, too.
