Event Report

Our event here in Halifax, NS was truly lovely. Although it was planned at the last minute everything came together very smoothly and generated a lot of interest across many different demographics. Our event was located facing the beautiful and historic Halifax water-front boardwalk enabling many people to view the electric vehicles we had on display. Many executives and marketing professions from NSPI (Nova Scotia Power Inc.) attended. Additionally, Rolf, Silke,and their wonderful dog named Kye (Tesla X Canada) attended with their Tesla Model X. This vehicle in particular generated the most interest. Everyone was literally wowed by the use and operation of its innovative "gull-wing" doors. Additional attendees included engineering, technical professionals, and academics from our local technical university, Dalhousie University. Myself, Johnny Beckett (EVEN Electric Inc.),along with folks mentioned above from Tesla X Canada and NSPI all cross-promoted one another via social media.
