National Drive Electric Week Event - Boulder
|Day:||Wednesday, September 16, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the events page.|
|Time:||4:00 - 7:00 PM|
Boulder Farmers Market
1350 Canyon Blvd.
Boulder, CO 80302
The Boulder event (the 3rd annual) logged about 295 attendees. We have placed our event for two years next to a popular Wednesday night Farmer' Market, so people are walking through our parking lot to get to and from the market. That is a huge help in drawing people to the event, since we have not spent money on advertising, just some social media and local calendar listings. We did have the local paper print, the Saturday before the event, details on all events in the County happening for NDEW. We had no city council members take us up on the opportunity to speak, unfortunately. We got great feedback from the OEMs (Tesla, Nissan, BMW, and a Boulder dealer in used EVs) and the e-bicycles rep. There were 19 private vehicles on display. We paid one person to oversee most logistics, and to design and print flyers. We could have benefited from more outreach in e-newsletters, more social media, and some paid advertising. Overall, a great event to expose more people to EVs.
