Another method to update your location in Roving Trader Tracker is by signing up to trading events. By signing up to events as a trader, your business becomes visible on the event's profile page on Roving Trader Tracker so visitors to the event page can see that you're trading at the event. For more information about events in Roving Trader Tracker, see the Event Management page.

Joining Events

To find events to attend as a business you can either use the 'Find Events' from the 'My Business' portal, or you can browse/search for events directly on the Roving Trader Tracker Website. You can also search for an event name directly when adding a new location update from the website - see here for details.

Removing an Event

To remove your attendance at an event, you can either find the event attendance under 'Additional events' or by finding the location update from the business location that is attending the event (see above). You can delete your attendance from the event from either location.


This will remove the event from your location timeline and also remove your business from the event's list of attending businesses.


You should contact the event organiser and consult their refund policy if you have paid a fee to trade at the event.
