Since the initiation of the Free Market Road Show®, hundreds of speakers from around the world have been involved in this event and they have reached thousands of participants. In 2017, the Free Market Road Show® reached an unprecedented number of events in 45 cities all over Europe. In 2018 FMRS will reach 40 cities and the audience of students, businesspeople and government officials.
