A Kit to Save Your Caboodle

Hotel group offers emergency planning supplies

Emergency Resources KitLittle things can hamstring meetings: a poster that won’t stay on the wall, an empty stapler, three power cords vying for two outlets. In response, Personality Hotels (www.personalityhotels.com), a collection of seven boutique hotels in San Francisco, has created the “Emergency Resources Kit,” free for planners who book meeting space at certain properties. Other planners might want to create their own (ordering almost everything from Staples.com would cost about $60). Included: a stapler and staples, tape, a pencil sharpener, Post-it notes, scissors, pens, rubber bands, poster adhesive, a power strip, cough drops, Band-Aids, hand sanitizer, laundry stain remover, Listerine Breath Strips and more.
