Do all the things you are coaching your hosts to do, such as OVER inviting, doing reminder calls, following up with people about outside orders, etc. I'd say the reminder calls are THE most important part. A lot of people don't call it an "open house" because that gives guests the impression they can just stop by, then they're not as likely to do it. Call it a "product preview" show or Spring Fling or something.
Good luck with it! I would do a demo just like you would at a show and maybe have a couple other things pre-made.
