Difference between Master and Regional-showroom
A Showroom is a space in Brandboom that contains its own:
- Owner, Invited Users
Master Showrooms are the default type of showroom when you create new showrooms. They are completely independent from each other.
Regional Showrooms are created "under" Master Showrooms. They exist mostly independently except that they offer you the ability to pass product and presentation information IN from a Master Showroom. That's it. Activity in a Regional Showroom is not necessarily visible to the Master Showroom and never visible to another Regional Showroom.
Note: Orders placed within a Regional Showroom can only be viewed within that Sub-Showroom. They will not be visible from the Master Showroom. Additionally, Order Reports generated in the Master Showroom will not pull data from Sub-Showrooms.
Regional Showroom Product Count
Important: When creating a Sub-Showroom with products from a Master Showroom, the products in the Sub-Showroom will count as separate products. For example, if your Master Showroom has 10 products and you create a new Sub-Showroom, the 10 products that are created in the Sub-Showroom by default will be added to the first 10 and your total number of Active Products will be 20.

Why create a Regional Showroom?
There may be times when you want to create a variation of an existing Showroom without having to build a brand new Master Showroom. Regional Showroom allow you to do just that. Regional Showroom are nested under their Master Showroom. You can control what aspects of the Master Showroom's product information and Presentations you would like in the Regional Showroom.
Uses for Regional Showroom
Restrict access to specific Pricing
For example, let's imagine you sell in the US and in the UK and you don't want Sales Agents from one region seeing Pricing for the other region.
You can set up your Master Showroom for your US region and a Regional Showroom for the UK region. When you invite Sales Agents into their appropriate Showrooms, they'll only be able to access what is shown in their Showroom and not the other.
Restrict access to specific Products
If you have some products you don't want to make visible to all users, you can use a Regional Showroom to limit what can be seen.
Let's imagine you have some styles that you want to sell in an international market but not domestically. You can set up a Regional Showroom specifically for your domestic viewers and control which Products from the Master Showroom appear inside it.
Before, creating a Regional Showroom, please read this article to understand how Main Showrooms work and their specific limitations.
*Please keep in mind that product edits WILL be shared between Main Showrooms and Regional Showroom, for example if you change the name of a product in the Main Showroom, it will also change that same product in the Regional Showroom and vice versa.
