Event ReportThe event was over two days and tied to a college football game on Saturday night and a driver meet-up and ride & drive on Friday evening. We had 18 vehicles on display outside the Close King Indoor Practice Facility at NC State University prior to their Satruday night game against Ball State University. As the OEMs bring more and more plug-in vehicles to market, our vehicle display set keeps on growing. The level of attention and enthusiasm regarding the vehicles was encouraging with a strong and diverse vehicle line-up. Official game attendance was 57,202. Several thousand people passed by with the onsite staff of twelve electric vehicle experts interacting with an estimated 750 interested fans. This is our third year partnering with Wolfpack Sports Marketing on NDEW at NC State. Overall the event was a lot of fun and a great success. Look for us in future years.
