Event Report

Good event overall w/great newspaper press (print + online) beforehand to help drive traffic to us. Great weather! Total visibility was expected since we were NOT dropping ourselves in a crowd. Great turnout for us in terms of EVs, but will shoot for ~30-40 EVs next year for this event. No politicians or VIPs were invited. EV owners were great as usual showing off their vehicles and discussing facets of EV sales, recharging sites, etc. We provided info to take, but should have been sticking main EV info sheets in everyone's hands. Good--not great--variety of EVs. First time we had Tesla Superchargers in area to highlight, show; that was a great bonus to the event. Had a EV owner dinner afterwards that about 8 attended; was good chance to get to know some owners better. Was the largest EV gathering for Knoxville to date.
