Mini Roadshow: Happiness on the Go! by Team 3

On 18th March 2014, EMRS Team 3 executed Happiness on the Go, the mini roadshow event from 10.30am to 3.30pm. We were tasked to liaise with our school's very own Cheers and consign products from them to sell. The duration of this event was from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm. 


To start off, we were given three weeks to plan this event. However, we had limited time as we had another event prior to this which was the SHS event. We were exactly 1 week away from Cheers Mini Roadshow after we officially ended our SHS event and had limited amount of time left to plan and finalize the details such as stocks, equipment needed, theme and props. The first step for us in the initial planning phase was to assign roles such as who would be the overall-in-charge, logistics, finance and one in charge for the advertising and promotions.

After a few hours of brainstorming, we decided on our theme, Happiness on the Go!

One of the problem we faced in the planning process was the numerous changes in prices of the goods. Whenever we were informed that there was a change in price, we have to change the quantity accordingly too.

After much ordeal, we finalized our quantity for the stocks, went around putting up posters and giving flyers to create awareness.

Edwin and Jo'maine were responsible for stock take.

And the rest was assigned to do the A&P.

On the day itself, we were not very stressed as compared to our first event, SHS event, as we had numerous rounds of practices and rehearsals of setting the booth within time limit of 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Throughout the mini roadshow, from the start to the end, we experienced the importance of  team-work. Our efforts were paid off as we hit and went beyond our sales target of $742.50. All in all, the journey team 3 experienced was certainly fun, exciting and educational! Kudos to Team 3!
