Promotional excursions are sales events during which the trader uses temporary premises (e.g. a restaurant or event location that has been rented for the promotional excursion) to offer goods or services and to accept orders as an itinerant trader, i.e. outside of their regular commercial premises or without having such.
The organiser must notify the competent Public Order Office for the place of the event two weeks in advance, if the promotional excursion / the sales event is publicly announced e. g. in newspapers, on posters, online or in other media.
