Site coordinators have begun to sign up to host local Odyssey events; the Odyssey Team has chosen a graphic theme and slogan for the year; and a new Odyssey website, including tools to streamline event planning for local site coordinators, has been launched.

Odyssey is a nationwide celebration, created by the NAFTC to promote the use of and educate the public on alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. Odyssey is the largest event of its kind promoting all types of alternative fuel vehicles and fuel sources.
While in previous years, Odyssey event hosts were given a comprehensive Site Coordinators’ Notebook and graphics templates to help in planning their events, the updated website features a more streamlined design and enhanced event tools and templates making hosting an Odyssey event easier than ever.

The expanded tools include informational event handouts, additional video files, social media graphics, advertising templates, promotional material order forms, and required post-event documentation.
NAFTC Assistant Director Communications and Outreach Judy Moore commented, “The updated Odyssey website gathers together everything site coordinator’s need to plan their Odyssey event. The Site Coordinators’ Notebook can be viewed online, with hyperlinks pointing to relevant graphics and templates within each section. Or it can be printed out and taken to planning meetings and distributed to team members.”
If you are interested in hosting an Odyssey event, here are some of the tools that will be available to assist with your planning:
The NAFTC has coordinated Odyssey for fourteen years, and during that time has accumulated a wealth of information and resources to assist event hosts with planning their Odyssey events. In addition to the new website, site coordinators also have access to the Odyssey Team for additional assistance in planning local events.
Join us as we continue the drive toward a clean, secure energy future by signing up to host an event in your area. 2017 Sponsors are also being recruited.
