The event was held on the Alliant Energy campus and open to the public, though visitors primarily came from the surrounding office park. A local Nissan, Chevy, Ford, and BMW dealership sent vehicle for test rides/drives, as did a local electric bike retailer, electric scooter retailer, and a representative from Zero motorcycles. In addition, six EV drivers traveled to the event, which took place over the course of four hours to allow visitors to participate before, during, and after their lunch breaks. Representatives from the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, Wisconsin Clean Cities, and ChargePoint had booths at the event, and ABB sent materials to distribute. Attendance and participation were steady throughout the four hours, with the vehicles almost always out on test rides.
