Twelve events and four in the USA, None listed for consumer attendance, all insider for manufacturers and the press, many including fossil fueled vehicles on display... Two years ago there was "EV EXPO" in Tampa FL. but although it attracted many in the conversion and component manufacturing and none from the major manufacturers (Which was refreshing! with no Ford, Chevy, or Nissan present ) the participants came from across the nation and included an amateur racing event of all electric vehicles. None of the events seem to relate except slightly to the converters, home based designers, and the "Pioneers" who give their Heart to EV promotion for the "Every-man" market... In 2014 or 2015 we will instigate a convention for EV Pioneers and the "HOME Built EV" enthusiasts; a group of individuals including EV Hot Rods, Custom Vehicles , and Racing Vehicles which were built or dramatically modified to battery EV by their owners. My Friends I have not forgotten you-all...
