announced it provided airport transportation to attendees of the FestForward Conference from November 22 to 24 in Santa Barbara, CA. The conference for music, film, food and wine festival organizers, designated RYDE as their official transportation partner, according to a press release.
“RYDE is excited to be both a sponsor and a transportation service provider for this unique and valuable conference,” Brian Allman, CEO of RYDE, said in the press release. “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,” Laurie Kirby, co-Founder of FestForward, said in the press release. “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.” //LD
