Each year, AABC Europe brings together a global audience of battery technologists and their key suppliers for a must-attend week of development trends, breakthrough technologies and predictions of the market for years to come. Our 2018 event was the largest AABC event ever with 1,000 attendees from 35 countries taking part in interactive discussions on the development and future market trends for vehicle electrification.
As more European nations and international automotive OEMs make their own commitment to vehicle electrification, we are excited to carry that momentum forward for 2019. Our program continues to expand coverage of the research and development of the chemistries and materials supporting the next generation of electric vehicle batteries, while maintaining our core focus on applied technologies needed for hybrid and electric cars and specialty vehicles.
The conversation has shifted, and the industry is embracing that it is no longer a question of if vehicle electrification will take place in Europe, but when. Make plans to be part of the discussion in 2019:
Attend. Join more than 1,000 of your colleagues, representing every level of the supply chain.
Share. Present a poster to showcase your latest research findings.
Exhibit. Highlight your latest technologies and services in our exhibit hall.
