Lay out the clothes you want to pack, and cut that down by half or at least to carry on only. Take some detergent sheets and do some laundry while there. I prefer dry wick materials just because they dry so fast, but otherwise wash an outfit or two a day, hang it, and expect it to be be dry within 24 hours.

Seriously, I did this for a two week trip recently (6 outfits each) and we still only wore some of those because it was too dang hot for any of the pants packed. We’d have been fine with 4 outfits each for that long!

The client has a very niche audience targeting other companies, has no research to share on their own industry, no persona info, and not much history for their products or advertising.

I need to pay this $9.68 out of my own pocket. Not sure if it worth it for a 1 hr flight.
