In 2017, Robert Llewellyn’s Fully Charged SHOW has announced its intention to launch its 1st ever ‘festival of electrification’ in the UK.
With an audience of millions of EV-ready, energy savvy viewers – generated globally on YouTube since 2010 – the Fully Charged SHOW attracts a sizable community of consumers.
After hugely successful events in Amsterdam, Austin, San Diego, Silverstone and Farnborough, Fully Charged LIVE also launches in Sydney and Vancouver in 2023.
In 2023, the Fully Charged LIVE team is targeting a combined total of more than 100,000 attendees across all 6 events, with up to 10,000 at Fully Charged LIVE Australia.
The full line-up of events is as follows:
Fully Charged LIVE Australia – 11th & 12th March 2023, ICC Sydney
Fully Charged LIVE UK South – 28th, 29th & 30th April 2023, Farnborough International
Fully Charged LIVE UK North – 19th, 20th & 21st May 2023, Yorkshire Event Centre
Fully Charged LIVE Canada – 8th, 9th & 10th September 2023, Vancouver Convention Centre
Fully Charged LIVE USA – 27th, 28th & 29th October 2023, Del Mar Fairgrounds, San Diego
Fully Charged LIVE Europe – 24th, 25th & 26th November 2023, RAI Amsterdam
Fully Charged LIVE is a content first show with an array of visitor attractions – Watt Drive test drive programme, Home Energy Advice Team, Electric Alley, Electric Launchpad and many more – as well as an exhibition of the latest clean energy technologies and electric vehicles.
The heart of the event is the on-stage ‘live sessions’ hosted by Fully Charged presenters Robert Llewellyn, Elliot Richards and many other familiar faces, as they discuss the hottest topics with the foremost experts.
CEO, Dan Caesar spoke about Sydney’s selection as the host city for Fully Charged LIVE Australia:
“We’ve long felt that Australia would be a prime candidate for a Fully Charged LIVE event, but the pandemic delayed our debut Down Under. The principal considerations for the Fully Charged LIVE team for choosing host countries, is existing audience size, and potential for clean energy and electric vehicle uptake. Australia scores extremely highly on both criteria. We are fortunate to receive around 4 million views globally on YouTube every month, and London, Sydney and Melbourne are amongst our top 3 cities, with Brisbane in 6th and Perth in 12th. We have been able to attract huge consumer audiences wherever Fully Charged LIVE is held and we’re confident that the Sydney event will be very successful.”
Founder, Robert Llewellyn had this to add:
“As someone who has family in Australia, I am familiar with its politics, and its potential, one of which has often been in conflict with the other. Under new leadership it’s our hope that Australia can fulfil that potential and take advantage of a once in a century opportunity to become a clean energy superpower. As an inhabitant of a damp island off the shores of Northern Europe we can only marvel at Australia’s abundant resources. Whether it’s solar power in a country with so much sunshine, wind power in a country where so much of the population lives close to the coast, or in the materials and minerals under its feet, Australia is perfectly positioned. Furthermore, through our interactions on YouTube and social media, we can see that our Australian audience has been starved of electric vehicles, and we hope to help.”
The latest Fully Charged LIVE in California received huge acclaim from a host of high-profile participants:
Henrik Fisker, CEO & Co-Founder, Fisker:
“Fully Charged LIVE exceeded our expectations in every way and gave us a great opportunity to meet with the public and our reservation holders.”
Sarah Hardwick, Chief Marketing Officer, Aptera:
“We had an amazing experience. We’ve already had thousands of new reservation holders and investors join Aptera’s solar revolution after seeing us at the show.”
