The Marketplace 2012 Election Tour
Monday, October 1, 2012 at 7:00 PM
Mark your calendars and order your tickets! The Marketplace 2012 Election Tour is coming to Cleveland on Monday, October 1st.
It is an event sure to sell out quickly as the Tour is only stopping in six cities across the country. And the second stop of the tour is Cleveland - for one evening only - in the Westfield Insurance™ Studio Theatre at the Idea Center® at PlayhouseSquare.
Join Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal as he chats with local business owners, familiar Marketplace voices and guests about the hottest topic in town - and around the country - the economy.
You heard all the clichés - you vote with your pocketbook; elections are horse races; it’s the economy stupid. Well, forget all that and join in for engaging conversation, lively interviews and fun. Kai and his team will bring their unconventional style and substance as they give you everything you need to know about the economy without the noise of the campaign.
Join Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal, Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson and other famiiliar Marketplace voices. Experience the Marketplace show, live. It's Economy 101: what you need to know, what you wnat to know, and what you are curious about.
Be sure to order your tickets now, because the last time Kai Ryssdal came to Cleveland, the event sold out quickly.
Tickets, which include a post-presentation dessert reception with Ryssdal, are $75 each.
A limited number of tickets are available for the presentation only at $35 per person.
You can also order tickets by calling 216-916-6154. Directions to the Idea Center are located here.
