Event Report

The North Texas NDEW event again beat (our own!) Texas record for EVs gathered in one place. Over 400 people registered for the event. Twelve public, non-profit, and industry exhibitors displayed their vehicles and chatted with attendees. State Representative Giovanni Capriglione and Regional Transportation Council Member Mike Taylor gave remarks about the impact of electric vehicles on the regional economy and air quality. We also had huge representation from the North Texas Tesla Owners Group, with 47 Tesla Model S's and 5 Model X's registered! Attendees had four chances to win extended experiences with EVs -- a weekend each with the Nissan LEAF, Chevy Volt, and BMW i3 and 24 hours with a Tesla Model S, thanks to our generous exhibitors, and there were games and food. The hours listed above really represent only day-of work combined from 8 staff members. This event is a MAJOR undertaking for us and involves many hours of planning and coordinating over the course of several months.
