Fresh from an incredibly successful launch in Sydney, Australia last weekend, as well as previous shows in Amsterdam, Austin, San Diego, Silverstone and Farnborough, Fully Charged LIVE will debut in British Columbia on September 8th, 9th & 10th.
12,000-15,000 EV-ready, energy-savvy consumers are expected to descend on the Vancouver Convention Centre in six months’ time to see their favourite YouTubers and enjoy an electrifying mix of attractions and exhibitors.
Benefiting from the YouTuber phenomenon, Fully Charged LIVE is proven to have unique ‘consumer pull’ whichever country it visits. In addition, to the Fully Charged SHOW’s audience, more than 20 North American YouTubers will play an active part in proceedings.
As a content-first show with an array of attractions, visitors can choose from 40+ ‘live sessions’ across 2 stages, covering topics such as ‘Which car companies could end up in an Electric Graveyard?’ and ‘Is China the key to cheaper cars?’ The full programme is now available to view online.
Watt Drive? will enable thousands to test drive the latest electric vehicles, while visitors will be able to get up close and personal with almost every currently available EVs in the Electric Alley and a selection of cars ‘coming soon’ to the Canadian market (Electric Launchpad).
The Home Energy Advice Team gives homeowners the opportunities talk to experts about their property, and the Zero Carbon Kitchen sees chefs creating plant-based meals, powered by an electric car. What’s more Fully Charged LIVE Canada will also include business and commercial vehicle elements, plus a micro-mobility test track and kids zone.
Due to early support and interest in participation, the planned exhibition space has already been increased by an additional 90,000 square feet adding new and exciting space and features to the indoor and outdoor test drives and visitor attractions.
Renewable Energy giant BC Hydro will lead the partner line-up as headline sponsor and had been instrumental in bringing Fully Charged LIVE to Vancouver.
Fully Charged will be filming episodes and recording podcasts extensively in Canada and the Pacific Northwest in Q3 2023 culminating in the LIVE event in September, and the organisers are currently researching potential stories.
Fully Charged’s CEO Dan Caesar commented
“This will be the 11th Fully Charged LIVE event globally and visitors are guaranteed an incredible experience packed with positive energy, while exhibitors and sponsors will benefit from an audience like no other. The Fully Charged community has been built over 12 years and is educated and ready to invest in cleaner technologies. The programme is already finalised, so visitors can plan their attendance.”
