The universal power strips are both legal and common in most of Asia. The “best” ones have a power tail plugin for the part that goes to the wall, so you carry the strip plus local power cable. We got a bunch of these for APRICOT years ago and shipped them from venue to venue along with our routers an WiFi kit.

But, honestly, personal one-port adapters work just fine. I don’t really see a need to
burden the secretariat with more stuff.

These adapters (UK version shown) are my personal favorites. They have a universal “face” and localized plug PLUS a splitter for US/EU:

AC POWER TRAVEL ADAPTER PLUG FOR UNITED KINGDOM UK ENGLAND IRELAND SCOTLAND MALAYSIA HONG KONG / WITH DUAL PLUG-IN PORTS AND SURGE PROTECTION / GROUNDED
