Event Report

  • It was held indoors at the Cincinnati Convention Center, with over 10,000 sq feet of floor space reserved for our EV showcase, speakers, stage and booths.
  • The # people reached by media is a total guess.  Our EV Showcase was featured local TV and highway billboard advertising by the local dealers association.  For reference: Population of Cincy + Dayton metro areas is 2.6 million
  • The hard number we have is number of overall auto expo attendees, since most paid admission: 17,000
  • We figure at least 50% were aware of the EV showcase, at least 20% visited the EV showcase, at least 5% interacted with our staff, speakers or other content
