Europe’s largest battery and H/EV event moves to manufacturing hub for e-mobility

  • 3rd annual event to take place in Stuttgart, Germany, home to Mercedes-Benz and Porsche
  • 200+ exhibitors already signed up for the event in the region known as ‘birthplace of the car’
  • More than 8,000 international attendees anticipated in 2019 (7 – 9 May)

STUTTGART, 03-Aug-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — The Battery Show Europe and Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo – Europe’s largest event for advanced battery and H/EV technology – is moving to the major German city of Stuttgart.

Taking place on 7-9 May 2019, the third annual trade fair and conference will be situated in a thriving centre for battery and H/EV opportunities. Stuttgart is the capital of southwest Germany’s Baden-Württemberg state, a region known globally as the ‘birthplace of the car’ and a prominent force in the global automotive industry. It accounts for a quarter of all jobs in the German automotive sector and generates billions in automotive manufacturing exports. Stuttgart itself is a renowned vehicle manufacturing hub, home to the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.

The region is Europe’s most important automotive cluster. Vehicle manufacturers here work closely with R&D specialists, SMEs, service providers and others to deliver world-class vehicles and innovations around the globe. Today, much of their focus lies in creating intelligent, environmentally sound transport solutions.

For those working across the battery and H/EV supply chains, Stuttgart affords abundant opportunities in battery and e-mobility development. The city is recognised worldwide as a hub for e-mobility thanks to its work in bringing outstanding innovations to market.

“Stuttgart is in the heart of the region where there is the highest concentration of automotive OEMs and suppliers,” says event director Robin Shelton. “This makes it a natural fit for both The Battery Show and Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe. Our attendees this year all welcomed the move and we see it as an important part of the growth of the events.”

Such growth has accounted for a 54% increase in attendance in 2018, and the 2019 edition is set to be the biggest show yet. More than 400 renowned exhibitors and over 8,000 attendees are anticipated next year, and more than 200 exhibitors have already signed up; among those to secure their spot are Valeo, Bosch Rexroth, Continental, Siemens, LEONI, Voltabox and Paraclete Energy.

Running alongside the trade fair is the industry conference, returning for 2019 with three tracks over four days, plus pre-conference workshops. Previous years have seen speakers from Porsche, Toyota, Johnson Controls, Volkswagen, A123 Systems and Ford share their insights on prominent industry themes.
