Worried this event will be boring?

We’ve got it covered. From live demonstrations to upbeat music, and dynamic speakers, keyboard snoozing won’t even cross your mind. You’ll get opportunities to collaborate with your fellow attendees and interact with our speakers to get your problems solved.

This dynamic two day event will be a combination of fun and education. We’ll start with safety playlists, safety information kits and keep you drawn in with live-video testing the safety of helmets, prizes and trivia throughout the day, and we’ll cap the days off with networking so you can meet and collaborate with other attendees. After the event, we’ll make sure that you get a virtual Scoot Safe kit that will help you spread the word to your patrons, audience members and partners about how they can scoot safer!
