Camera – Expo is such a unique experience and you’ll want to capture it all.

Portable Charger or External Battery Pack – Expo 2020 will be one of the most photographed events in history so why not take advantage of that by capturing as much content for your followers? Be sure to bring a portable charger with you too just in case!
