American Honda Motor Co. will once again support National Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Day Odyssey, as a 2014 national sponsor, joining the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).
National AFV Day Odyssey, the nation’s largest biennial celebration, was created by the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) to promote the use of and provide education on alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. Honda has been a supporter of Odyssey since the inaugural event in 2002.
The NAFTC is excited about the Honda sponsorship. Judy Moore assistant director of Communications and Outreach at the NAFTC commented, “American Honda Motor Co. has been a huge supporter of Odyssey since the beginning. Honda and other sponsors and partners have played a big part in the success of Odyssey over the years. We are very excited to again have Honda as a sponsor of National AFV Day Odyssey.
Odyssey provides people of all ages and professions with the opportunity to become better acquainted with viable, clean vehicle alternatives.
National sponsorship opportunities for Odyssey 2014 are available for amounts from $10,000 to $50,000. As in the past, potential sponsors will be invited to participate in Odyssey on a national level, by pledging funds to Odyssey’s success and having a large corporate presence at all Odyssey sites through signage and the opportunity to display vehicles, components, or other related items.
All sponsorship levels will be acknowledged in the Odyssey marketing materials, including posters and brochures shipped to all Odyssey sites, and in the final Executive Summary, which is distributed to organizations across the country as well as members of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.
Sponsors will enjoy nationwide recognition and the opportunity to put their product/product information into the hands of more than 250,000 potential, under-reached consumers in multiple nationwide markets. The NAFTC anticipates exceeding 2012 numbers of 152 sites (local events), with over 250,000 people in attendance and more than 200 million individuals reached through media coverage.
Participating in this national event will allow sponsors to partner and network with other national leaders committed to the alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicle industry. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
