Who Better to Shuttle Festival Industry Attendees than a Service Company Focused on Festivals?
Online PR News – 11-November-2015 – Los Angeles, CA – In a show of aligned synergies, RYDE, a crowdsourced transportation service company focused on music festivals and other live events, will transport festival industry individuals from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to the FestForward Conference in Santa Barbara, CA. FestForward, a unique interactive conference and networking event for music, film, food + wine festival organizers, has designated RYDE as their official transportation partner and will utilize the bus shuttles to give festival producers and organizers a vision as to the value propositions of the service. RYDE will transport attendees from LAX to the Fess Parker resort on Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd, with return trips on Tuesday the 24th; RYDEs may be reserved either roundtrip or one-way.
“RYDE is excited to be both a sponsor and a transportation service provider for this unique and valuable conference,” said Brian Allman, CEO of RYDE. “Shining a light on the issues that face almost all festival organizers, like expanding their fan reach, enhancing the social experience, overcoming traffic ingress and egress issues, and ensuring attendee safety, is our company goal. One of RYDE’s core values is to help reduce the carbon footprint of both the festival and event attendees, and each RYDE bus will take 20-35 vehicles off the road.”
“We have followed RYDE’s progress for some time, and we are pleased to have them be part of the FestForward conference,” said Laurie Kirby, co-Founder of FestForward. “RYDE focuses on their partnerships with festival management to ensure that they are meeting the festival producer’s objectives, and that is such an important concept for success. RYDE extends the experience of the brand for the attendee from the time they leave home until they return.”
RYDE co-Founders Brian Allman and Bob Aube will be in attendance at FestForward to capitalize on the networking opportunities with this targeted audience, as well as signing attendees up for the RYDE shuttle to LAX. Look for the RYDE booth in the lobby of The Fess Parker.
