May 30, 2018 The Nickel Ride

The Nickel Ride, an innovative and eco-friendly transportation service that connects your community with local commerce, today announced its attendance at the Florida City and County Management Association’s (FCCMA) 2018 Annual Conference being held at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Florida. The FCCMA’s 2018 Annual Conference attracts city and county managers, assistant managers, and department heads from around the state to three and a half days of seminars and networking with colleagues. It’s a wonderful opportunity for companies to showcase new products and services to these important decision-makers.

So, what exactly is The Nickel Ride? It’s an innovative transportation service that changes the way visitors and community members experience your city. The company elevates local brands and generates market awareness by providing unique and free transportation experiences to visitors and residents alike. The Nickel Ride vehicles are tastefully decorated with local business-branded messages, both inside and out. Inside, there is space for branding and giveaways for spreading businesses’ messages to captive targeted audiences. Outside, it’s like having a mobile advertisement driving throughout the heart of your downtown community. Community members from Fort Myers, FL and Cape Coral, FL are already experiencing the benefits of The Nickel Ride and Punta Gorda is just a day away, scheduled for a May 31 launch.

The Nickel Ride is listed as a Platinum Sponsor at the FCCMA 2018 Annual Conference and there will be two company representatives available for questioning and scheduling meetings at the event. These representatives will be The Nickel Ride’s Director of Sales & Business Community Relations and the Director of Government Relations, Zeke Jackson.
