A small talk tip: Going to a public viewing?

Sports are usually a safe small talk topic, so the European Football Championship might come up in some of your business conversations.

Here's a small talk tip: if you make small talk about the games with business partners from the U.S. or U.K., it might be best to avoid using the phrase "public viewing".

In English, "public viewing" generally means öffentliche Aufbahrung.

To avoid any confusion, use "public screening" instead.
