2016 Road Show????

So smart is rolling out the 453 CABRIO with another "ROAD SHOW" event.

2016 smart roadshow | smart USA

Anybody gone to one?

Is it really informative, or more of the same we see on smartusa and smartusainsider?

Well New York and Boston are in the rear view mirror and apparently little buzz generated?

It would be really informative to folks who have never seen or driven a smart car. But probably not so informative to you. I've been to previous smart roadshows. I believe there is lots of information available, at least the folks I spoke to in SoCal events knew their stuff. You might not learn anything though just because you know everything already.

Sounds clueless to me. Just because he sells them doesn't mean he knows more then owners. In fact I had to show my sales rep SEVERAL things on the 453 that she didn't know. Like how to lock the service flap.

Unless smartUSA has changed it up, for the Atlanta ED Roadshow when they really needed "informative folks" all we got was uninformed smiling faces hired from a "glamor" agency?

Doesn't sound "clueless" at all IF you read the whole sentence. And I agree with it being "more of the same we see on smartusa and smartusainsider?"

I don't believe he sells them any longer. But when he did, he was definitely one of the most knowledgeable folks involved with smart. He taught me a trick or two about the 451 smart fortwo's.

Which is why he asked the question. I don't believe he is working with smart any longer, so perhaps he was curious to know if he would learn something he didn't already know. I'm sure he'll speak for himself if he returns to this thread.
