Twenty-four days until the 2013 Zumba Instructor Conference in LA.  I’m so excited that I am worried I will forget to pack everything I need to have a blast in Los Angeles. To help make it easier on myself (and you) I made a comprehensive packing list. I call it the ULTIMATE Packing List for Zumba® Conference or Convention. You can use this for the LA Conference or the Instructor CONVENTION in Orlando, FL (August 2013).   I also found some helpful tip in this Packing Like a Pro Video.  Let me know what you think.   I also included food items to help save money.  Some things may not work for your situation so edit as needed. Did I forget anything?
