The Free Market Roadshow - running for 15 years with dozens of partners throughout Europe - is a strong network of influential organizations and individuals advancing individual freedom on the continent. The joint effort of leading organizations and universities in Europe conducts an annual series of events to spread the word of freedom and prosperity to empower individuals. Prior to the pandemic, the roadshow reached 45 cities in one-year with 10,000+ attendees.

The Free Market Roadshow (FMRS) has a continuous ambition to build new networks and coalitions helping to spread the message of individual and entrepreneurial freedom, sound policy, self-responsibility and free speech — all with the goal of reaching new audiences. They will host between 35 and 45 events in 2023 and hope to achieve nearly 10,000 attendees. In 2023, they will focus on growing their impact and attendee engagement, while experimenting with content innovations to attract non-traditional audiences.

Contribution to Enhancing Freedom

Their innovative concept of touring capitals and important university cities in Europe and beyond has proven to reach the private sector (entrepreneurs and businesspeople) and empower the next generation (students). With its large network, the FMRS can play a crucial role in advancing ideas that will lead to general freedom and prosperity.
