I just graduated from college and started working a few months ago. My company has a big new project which I have been working on with several other engineers. As part of that project, we are taking a business trip to meet face-to-face with the hardware manufacturer in Taipei (we are in the US). I will be going on this trip, but none of the other engineers will be going because the announcement was fairly short notice so the more experienced engineers are unavailable. The only other two attending this business trip are VPs at the company, one of which is the company founder and my boss.
So here's my question(s):
What should I keep in mind when going on a business trip with two high-ups in the company? What steps should I take to be as prepared as possible since I am the only engineer attending and will be speaking for the rest of my team?
I know my questions are a bit vague. I'm really mostly looking for some advice on how to approach this big anxiety-inducing business trip and live up to the expectations.
Update: My company is a software company and we will be porting our service to a new hardware platform. While it's not explicitly a client/vendor relationship, we are using this new hardware at the request of a big customer, so we are working to meet the needs of the customer by using the new hardware. I have talked to my manager, and I will be spending most of this week meeting with the engineers who are not going so that I can get organized and get address everyone's questions during the trip next week.
