Choose the Right Venue/Location
Just like any other event, the venue is the prominent necessity for your roadshow. Choose areas that are easily accessible and have a high target market density in the city you are planning to have your show. If you are organizing the event in some other city, seek the help of the local tour operators or destination management companies. Ensure the event location is not too far from the majority of your targeted audience. If your attendee has to travel more than 15 miles to make it to your roadshow, it might not be an ideal location.

Promotion Is Everything
Well, you never get to say “that’s enough of the promotion” as promoting your show is extremely important. Advertise your event well in the cities/locations where you’ll be exhibiting. Make a noise in fascinatingly creative ways about your event on social media.
A roadshow comes up with a huge sales potential, the promotion in advance will make a way to cashing this opportunity.
