"To be able to try a car at a car show... In all my years, I’ve never seen such a thing! Incredible concept, seen nowhere else. Very innovative. Congratulations to you all. For next year, why don’t you try to convince those players which missed this first edition, such as VW with their eGolf, to join. I know I’ll be looking forward to next year."

- Marc Sarault, visitor

"I've done quite a few events through the AVEQ in recent years and I can tell you that it has been one of the most complete and popular events I’ve had the pleasure to attend. Everything seemed perfectly synchronized and well organized. I heard but praise from the visitors and exhibitors. This show confirms the extent to which the transition to electric in the transport industry has begun. Congratulations!"

- François Viau, Head of the Pairing Program, AVEQ

"The success of this first show is an asset for electromobility and I hope that the next editions will grow with the same level of quality and professionalism that you have offered this year. Congratulations!"

"Congratulations on your event, it was amazing. You were quite right, we were completely wrong ... I should have further insisted to find a budget for the show... Sometimes we make the wrong decisions… here’s an example! We'll make sure not to make the same mistake next year, I’ve learnt very good lesson! I am happy for this great success. Congratulations and mea culpa."
