The Battery Show Europe Reveals Conference Agenda Feat. 100+ Speakers from Freyr, Northvolt, Solid Power, Volkswagen, Daimler, and More

• Expert-led sessions explore the latest developments in battery markets, design, chemistry, management, charging, and manufacturing
• The three-day educational programming includes daily keynotes, technical sessions and panels, and lightning talks

STUTTGART, Germany--()--The global advanced battery industry, a market forecasted to value more than $168 billion by 2023, is undergoing immense and rapid growth as nearly every sector electrifies and the world continues to see unprecedented demand for electric vehicles (EVs). The Battery Show Europe, a must-attend trade show connecting the global advanced battery and EV/HEV tech community, is gearing up for a well-attended conference and exhibition slated from 28-30 June at the Messe Stuttgart in Stuttgart, Germany.

The Battery Show Europe runs alongside The Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe, bringing together the battery and EV tech communities to facilitate trends and new technology discovery, networking, education, and deal-making. Press are invited to attend the event for free – register here.

"A differentiator of The Battery Show Europe and E/HV Tech Expo Europe that we're immensely proud of is that we deliver an event that focuses on real-world commercial solutions as opposed to research-based technologies, thus arming attendees with concrete takeaways," said Rob Shelton, Event Director, The Battery Show Europe at Informa Markets.

Shelton continued, "While we are firmly rooted in the European market, we draw exhibitors and attendees from around the world, all looking for new solutions to current challenges, inspiration, and new partners to do business with. The response for this year's event, in particular, underscores the industry's pent-up demand for face-to-face connection and peer-to-peer learning, especially given this market's incredible growth – it's gearing up to be an incredible event."

Returning in person for three days, the highly anticipated conference and exhibition is designed to progress the advanced battery industry, one of the world's fastest-growing sectors. Conference attendees have the opportunity to learn from world-renowned experts as they deliver insights into key business and technical challenges the industry navigates with daily, such as next-generation battery and powertrain development that can reduce manufacturing costs and OEM technology strategies for battery design.

Conference attendees benefit from daily morning keynotes, interactive panel discussions, and standalone presentations grouped by topic area, including Battery Market Forecasts, Design & Integration, Recycling, Thermal Management, Battery Management & Intelligence, Energy Storage Solutions, Battery Materials, Battery Chemistry Evolution, Silicon Anodes, Solid-State Batteries, Charging, Battery and Electrode Manufacturing, European Battery Supply Chains, and Looking Beyond Lithium-Ion.
