What are the Best Accessories When Working at an Event?
Whether you’re a volunteer or event planner, you can always use more tricks for working at an event. Thankfully, there are plenty of accessories for people working at events - everything from water bottles to phone chargers to crossbody phone cases!
In this article, we’ll cover the top eight must-haves for people working events. We’ll provide our recommendations on the best brands to look for as well as a few tips on how you can use them. Read on for more information!
1. Reusable Water Bottle
Whether the event is indoors or outdoors, chances are that you’ll be running around trying to make things happen. Stay hydrated by keeping a reusable water bottle with you that you can fill up periodically to quench your thirst. The last thing you want is to be dehydrated during an important event!
Are you worried about drinking tap water? If so, grab a filtered water bottle like the Astrea ONE water bottle, which filters out lead, chlorine, copper, chromium, and more!
2. Portable Phone Charger
Depending on how long the event lasts, you may find your phone’s battery level starting to get low. To counteract this, bring a portable phone charger. You won’t have to worry about missing important calls during the event or not being notified about important updates!
In past articles, we’ve not been quiet about our love of Anker power banks, and we think a magnetic power bank from Anker is a must for any event.
3. Name Tags
Juliet once asked, “What’s in a name?” but by the end of the story, we learn that there is quite a lot of significance to a name. (In fact, the entire story would have resolved much differently if the couple in question didn’t belong to their respective last names.)
Names are the first things we learn about other people, and at any event where you’re getting to know new people, name tags are crucial. You can dress them up or go with the stand-by stick-on name tags, but you should definitely have them.
4. Sunglasses and Keebos Sunglass Straps
Chances are you already have a favorite pair of sunglasses, but if you’d like to keep them, you should add Keebos sunglass straps to your must-haves. For people working at events that are outdoors, sun protection is extremely important. Keebos straps will keep the sun out of your eyes so you can focus on why you’re at the event.
Our premium vegan leather sunglass straps will provide a place for you to keep your sunglasses if you don’t need them, minimizing the chances of lost or stolen sunglasses. Add sunscreen, lipstick with sunscreen, hats, etc. to your sun protection measures as well.
5. Walkie Talkies
You’ll need a way to communicate during the event, and walkie-talkies are generally the preferred method to do that (although some people prefer to use phone apps instead).
Stay in the know about event updates and make sure you don’t miss out on crucial information by having a walkie-talkie on hand.
Clipboards are an event planner’s life - on them, you’ll have schedules, seating arrangements, dietary restrictions, and other crucial details. Choose a clipboard in a fun color or get one that will allow you to keep even more documents and writing utensils in it.
Just make sure that, whatever you do, you don’t lose it!
7. Emergency Kit
Bring along a mini-emergency kit, complete with a few essentials:
8. Keebos Crossbody Phone Cases
Our beautiful Keebos crossbody phone cases come in every style and color imaginable. Whether you’d prefer a premium cord, an elegant chain, or an industrial-looking strap, we’ve got crossbody phone cases for you.

Here are some of the colors Keebos come in:
- Camo Green
- Woven Red (red, light blue, and tan)
It’s critical to keep your phone on you when planning events because rule number one of event coordination is to expect the unexpected! Keeping your phone nearby will ensure that you are ready and available to deal with any emergencies that arise.
