Cycling PEI Visioning Day

January 14, 2006 — I am pleased to announce the first ever Visioning Day for Cycling PEI as well as an opportunity for businesses to promote their products. An exciting day for suggestions on how you think the future of cycling on PEI should look as well as ways to explore partnership opportunities.

The goal is to have anyone who is interested in bicycling in attendance. Be they recreational, commuters, tourists, road, mountain, racers, environmentalists, city planners, recreational directors, etc. This is an opportunity to highlight what you view as gaps and what you think could be solutions.

The day is free with lunch provided. The date for the event is Saturday, January 28, 2006, and the location is 40 Enman Crescent in Charlottetown (House of Sport).

Whatever your goal for 2006, Cycling PEI’s Visioning Day offers you an unique opportunity to kick-start your campaign.

With a growing and avid membership base, plus the fact this event is encouraging non-member participation to anyone with an interest in cycling (recreational, touring, commuting, racing), the potential customer base is not only large but also targetted to people who value physical fitness and are health-minded individuals.

Booth set up will occur at 8:30 a.m. with displays beginning at the same time and ending at 2:30 p.m. The Visioning Day session will begin at 9:00 a.m. You can leave your booth display as the day progresses as there will be one morning break, lunch, and the session will end at 2 p.m., allowing another 30 minutes for one to one interaction with potential customers. You may also elect to have the booth on location with no person present — the option is yours.

Booths will be located in the corridor of the House of Sport building in Charlottetown. The cost is $25 per booth and only a limited number of booths will be available. The deadline for booth registration and payment is January 23, 2006.

Aside from the benefits of exposure for your business / organization, you may also wish to participate in the discussions during the Visioning Day and offer ideas that your business / association can partner with Cycling PEI in order to foster a mutually beneficial relationship.
