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."
