National Drive Electric Week Event - West Des Moines
|Day:||Thursday, September 14, 2017 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the events page.|
|Time:||4:00 - 8:00|
Valley Junction Farmer's Market
300 5th Street
West Des Moines, IA 50265
Leading up to the event we were able to arrange for 2 radio interviews for promotion. Everything else was done via social media (mostly Facebook).
We were able to get the West Des Moines mayor to sign a watered down proclamation, but no one from city government attended.
We visited every dealership in town. In the end 2 dealerships brought 1 car each. (BMW 5 series hybrid and a Bolt)
One solar installer attended. BTW there is a conflict with NDEW and the solar industry. An international solar installers convention was in Vegas from Sunday through Wednesday.
