- Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) February 09, 2012 - The International EV Expo charges into Tampa Bay February 21 - 23, 2012. The Forums of The EV Expo will provide attendees three days of conferences and workshops devoted to key market segments: Consumers, Business owners and Community planners.
Electric vehicle sales in North America are expected to double by 2020 according to IHS Global Insight, and clean, non-polluting vehicles will play a central role in the world's transportation needs.
The EV Expo Forum will serve as a gateway for discussion that will open new and long-lasting business opportunities in the Southeast United States. In addition, the event will showcase today's electric drive vehicles available to consumers and highlight specialized commercial markets such as vehicles designed for local fleet service and transportation logistics.
The EV Expo Forum's opening day schedule will supply consumers with decision-making information including a review of automaker e-drive portfolios with publisher Bill Moore of EV World, the leading source for EV information since 1998. Electric vehicle expert Ed Benjamin will cover two-wheeled EVs such as motorcycles and bicycles. Then, David Kerzel introduces homeowners to the important aspects of safely charging EVs at home.
The second day of the Forum focuses on small business owners interested in learning how to take advantage of this emerging market. Martin Schuerman will discuss electric vehicle fleet operations and his company's experience developing port logistics trucks. Battery experts will discuss the integration of their critical technologies into vehicle conversions, followed by the business of installing residential and commercial charging stations.
The third day of the conference caters to the needs of those responsible for planning, implementing and administering energy and transportation systems. Experts from New York, Tampa and Santa Monica, among others, will share their insights into the development needs of communities introducing electric mobility systems and the implications on economics and public policy.
Each day ends with a networking reception. EV Expo Forum attendance is $295 for one day and $695 for all three days. Industry and education discounts are available. Stand alone tickets for the EV Expo Show are also available for $10 per day or $20 for three days.
