Thank you again for the sponsorship of the Segway for the Nightglow. It was another huge crowd of approx 80,000 and this made life so much easier for our H&S Officer to negotiate her way through the crowd” – Michele Connell (General Manager, Balloons over Waikato).
Segway PTs have proven themselves time and again to be an essential tool for Event Management. Following on from last week’s Balloons Over Waikato, look for PTs being widely deployed at the Hamilton V8s for the third year in a row.
Rob Fife, CEO of Air New Zealand, was one of three executives who competed on Segway PTs in a time-trial competition to collect a grab bag of goodies from stall holders at the annual Air New Zealand Eco-Day in Auckland this week. It was his first time on a PT, and said it was so much easier than flying a 747. Air NZ runs the Eco-Day as an opportunity for businesses to present their initiatives and products, while educating people about Air NZ’s own world-leading efforts to reduce emissions. As a zero-emission electric vehicle with a very low environmental impact, the Segway PT was once again popular with visitors.
