Electric Vehicle Symposium

During the week of November 15-19, 2004 the Electric Drive Transportation Association held their 21st Annual International Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exposition at the Long Beach Convention Center in Southern California. As part of this week long convention Teevan Events as a subcontractor to First Option – Conference & Event Management, produced the “Gala Evening” aboard the Queen Mary.
