We couldn't have been happier with the turnout and success of our first annual EVs & Tea event.
We're more than elated to report that our recent EVs & Tea event went off without a hitch. For those unaware, MYEV, InsideEVs, and EVANNEX teamed up to host our first annual EVs & Tea event this past weekend in Miami, Florida, right next door to our Motorsport headquarters.
We're ultimately thankful to the MYEV team for doing all the behind-the-scenes work to put this event on in partnership with EVANNEX. If you're in the market for an EV, MYEV has an exclusive platform to buy and sell electric vehicles. Its ultimate goal is to push EV adoption forward through the power of education and used electric vehicle sales.
The special event was kicked off by Ceyhan Cagatay (Director of Product & Strategy at Motorsport Network and MYEV) who co-launched the site.
EVs & Tea took place at a unique park coined BaseCamp Miami. The entire event was outdoors in a huge area that offered plenty of room for some 700 registered EVs. This event banked on our partner EVANNEX's previous Cars and Coffee events, though we took everything to a whole new level in terms of space, applicants, and festivities.
InsideEVs was fortunate to attend the event. It was outstanding to meet many new people who are dedicated to the EV industry and its overall growth and adoption. It was also amazing to connect with the greater EV community. Needless to say, we made many new and positive connections, which may eventually play out to help IEV grow even further.
Fortunately, I was actually able to be a part of one of the two EV-related panel discussions hosted at the event. The first, which I watched intently, was comprised of folks like Kyle Conner (Out of Spec Motoring), Michael Bodner (Teslatunity), Rafael Santoni (TesLatino), and Thomas Sun from AmpUp.
My panel consisted of the famed Brooks Weisblat (DragTimes), as well as Trevor Page (Tesla Owners Online), Eli Burton (Starman and My Tesla Adventure and Tesla Geeks Show podcast), and the truly motivating, self-proclaimed "glue of the Tesla and EV community," vice president of the Austin, Texas Tesla Owner's Club, Tesla Geeks Show contributor, and the man who brought Tesla to Kazakhstan, Anuarbek Imanbaev.
