EV Fest announces their Fifth Annual EV Fest 2014 Electric Vehicle Show on June 15, 2014, at Hamilton Wentworth Twin Pad Arena, 27 Hwy 5 West, Hamilton, Ontario, from 10AM until 5PM.
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, April 01, 2014 -- EV Fest today announced its official show date on Sunday, June 15, 2014 at The Hamilton Wentworth Twin Pad Arena, 27 Hwy 5 West, Hamilton, Ontario, from 10AM until 5PM.
June 2014 marks the fifth EV Fest. Growing steadily from a standing start seven years ago, this year’s show is devoted to OEM vehicles, personally-converted Electric Vehicles, Hybrids, Plug-in Hybrids, eBikes, Electric Scooters, Trikes, EV components and supplies. And once again, waste vegetable oil conversions. Fuel Cell Cars may also be seen this year.
EV Fest 2014 offers 17,000 square feet of indoor and under-roof show space and can be enlarged to up to 34,000 square feet.
EV Fest creator Robert Weekley is proud of this year’s growth. “Our mandate is to grow EV Fest to be the largest Electric Vehicle show in Canada. We’re expecting up to 70 exhibitors to attend. That’s from inside Ontario, the rest of Canada and internationally too.”
Weekley explains further, “We’ve caught the public’s attention at just the right time. Gas prices are going nowhere but up. Drivers are aggravated by wild swings in fuel prices. Our imported oil is at the mercy of unstable governments. Right from the start, we’ve seen all kinds of people visit the show. We get the professionals - Designers, Municipal Decision Makers, CEO's and Fleet Buyers, and the fans with a personal interest in how an Electric Vehicle (EV) might benefit their lifestyle.”
“EV Fest 2014 is a natural partnership of all the EV-type vehicles currently available. The OEMs use it to gauge the reactions of an eager and receptive public,” concludes Weekley.
About EV Fest:
April 10, 2010 saw "EV Show & Shine BBQ" formed after less than five weeks planning. The successes it generated led to a name change and a new website, and the first official ‘EV Fest’ was set for October 2010. EV Fest 2011 took a new direction and moved to the Evergreen Brick Works. Boasting 36 Exhibitors onsite, it was double the previous year’s event. EV Fest 2012 grew once again and attendance nearly tripled. 2013 saw EV Fest scaled back to accommodate a move to a smaller facility that supported charging up to eight Electric Vehicles at one time plus a 20 kW Solar Carport.
But now the time has come to grow even further. 2014 boasts space for up to 80 indoor exhibitors plus 10 EV charging stations. It also allows excellent support for corporately-sponsored Electric Vehicle test drives, without interfering with the core show activities.
