What documents do I need to enter the United States with the b1 Visa? I have my Visa in my hands right now but I'm not sure if I need any additional proof documents to show at the border. I know this Visa is usually granted for business conferences and business travel. Does that mean that I need to have some kind of verification of my business travel intentions when I pass the border control?

    Just have whatever documents you had for your visa application. – user 56513 Feb 8 '19 at 17:42

They may not ask to see any documents; for most business visitors they probably don't. But if they decide to look at you more closely and you don't have any evidence supporting the claimed purpose of your visit, you could be denied entry. The burden of proof is on you.

So you should indeed have some evidence of your travel plans showing that you are a genuine business visitor. If your visa application was submitted for your present trip, you should bring the documents you submitted with the visa application. If your visa was granted for a prior trip, you should bring analogous documents.
