Following its successful launch in Sindelfingen near Stuttgart this April, a new German dual exhibition will find itself in Hanover in the next. From May 15 through May 17, 2018, it will be featured at Hanover’s show grounds in halls 19 and 20. The joint debut of the Battery Show Europe, whose organizers have termed it the continent’s premiere show on the latest in battery manufacturing and product development, and its sister event, the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, attracted around 4,000 professionals and 200 exhibitors. James Reader, CEO of British event organizer Smarter Shows, said that he would now move the show to “the heart of Lower Saxony – a core location for the worldwide automotive industry, in the direct vicinity of companies like the world’s biggest car producer Volkswagen, automotive supplier Continental, battery manufacturer Johnson Controls, vehicle system manufacturer Wabco and construction machinery manufacturer Komatsu Hanomag.” There is no entrance fee for either event, but both require registration. Conference attendance, on the other hand, does have a cost, and subscribers to HZwei and H2-international can get a 10 percent discount on tickets.
