Event Report

Event took place at Conestiga Mall in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. As this was our first year and time organizing such an event, we felt it was a successful day. We had and overcast day on Event day (Saturday), with the threat of rain for the whole day, in the last half hour of the event the sky opened up and ended our exhibit. We got word out via Twitter and Facebook and paired up with a local organization (Sustainablw Waterloo). EVs that participated included Chevy Volts(9), Nissan Leafs(7), Tesla Model S's(3), Smartcar ForTwo's(2), a BMW i3, and a Kia Soul EV. We billed our event as a chance for the public to learn about electric cars from real current electrical vehicle owners, we had no dealers or items for sale, just information and test drives. We had a good location, as the regional mall gave us space in their parking lot (near the L2 car charger). All had a good time and we will want to make a bigger splash next year! Thanks for the opportunity!
