Hello Elio’ers! We wrapped up in Rome, GA last Thursday with Vice President of Sales Jerome Vassallo presenting at the Confluence Conference. Or, better known to the social media users at the event, #confluencerome.
The conference was very exciting as innovative idea, after innovative idea graced the stage. From open-source 3D printing providing hands and extremities to those in need to non-invasive Ebola detecting scans, it really had it all. There was even an interactive 3D education system on display that allows students to dive into the world of visual learning from inside the classroom (like dissecting a frog, without the guts).
Enough about frogs. Let’s move to our three-legged animal (that’s right, animal) that can reach speeds over 100 MPH. The Elio was very well received at the conference and even got a few “WOO!”s from the crowd when Jerome stated it will be made in America. There were many tweets that came in during Jerome’s speech and were conveniently displayed on a stage monitor using the event’s hashtag. Check some of them out below or go to our twitter feed for more…
Jerome ran through the Elio basics like our 4 must haves – low price, high mileage, safety, and American-made and dove into deeper topics like our supplier network and distribution plans. It became obvious when questions were allowed that most of the audience was familiar with Elio. Many #futureliowners were in attendance and others did their research, asking specific questions about legislative updates and design decisions.
Now that we have left Rome, GA, we’re headed a tad bit south to the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Hopefully you can make it out to see us if you’re in the area. This is our first Speedway event and we’re geared up for it. Check www.atlantamotorspeedway.com/events/ for tickets! :)
