Unravelling these topics are experts from notable companies throughout the industry. Confirmed speakers set to share their unique insights include:
  • Frank Bekemeier, Chief Technology Officer e-Mobility, Volkswagen AG
  • Paul Freeland, Principal Engineer, Cosworth

Building on the success of 2017's event, this year's conference offers a comprehensive format featuring three tracks, as well as new pre-conference workshops. Taking place on Monday 14 May, the workshops explore how to define the optimal testing strategy for evaluating battery and electric vehicle safety through testing.

Providing a backdrop to the discussions is Hannover, a city that pioneers e-mobility and which is a major regional hub for automobile construction. Millions of new vehicles are manufactured here every year, meaning demand is increasing for suppliers of batteries and other e-mobility components as vehicle manufacturers consider more sustainable build options. The conference will take place in the vast exhibition space of the Hannover Messegelände and offers an unparalleled opportunity to keep your finger on the pulse of industry developments and engage in lively discussion. Make sure you're part of the conversation by booking an early bird pass by Thursday March 15 to save up to €300.

Running parallel to the conference a free-to-attend trade fair. The Battery Show, co-located with Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe welcomes industry players from around the world. Specialist suppliers with a presence at the show include Tesla, Panasonic, Valeo, Continental, Bosch Rexroth, LEONI, TE Connectivity, Voltabox, Siemens and HUBER+SUHNER, among hundreds of others.

The event launched in 2017, and in just one year is on track to double in size. Due to unprecedented demand, the floor plan has been extended to accommodate hundreds of exhibitors, all set to showcase manufacturing solutions from across the entire battery and electric vehicle supply chain. Thousands of design, production and manufacturing solutions for battery and H/EV applications will be on display and featured in live product demonstrations.

Excitement is mounting. Hundreds have already registered to attend the trade fair, and 5,000 attendees are anticipated in Hannover next May. Registration is free - register for a free pass here.
