International Battery Seminar
34th Annual International Battery Seminar & Exhibit
Date: March 20 - 23, 2017
Venue: Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, Fort Lauderdale, FL USA

Since its debut in 1983, the International Battery Seminar & Exhibit has established itself as the premier event showcasing the state of the art of worldwide energy storage technology developments for consumer, automotive, military, and industrial applications. Key thought leaders will assemble to not only provide broad perspectives, but also informed insights into significant advances in materials, product development, manufacturing, and application for all battery systems and enabling technologies. As the longest-running annual battery industry event in the world, this meeting has always been the preferred venue to announce significant developments, new products, and showcase the most advanced battery technology. Attendance grew 25% in 2016, and more than 80% since joining the Cambridge EnerTech portfolio in 2014!

Spanning four days in 2017, the expanded meeting agenda will include nine pre-conference workshops, eight conference tracks divided in four streams, 120+ technical presentations, an exhibit hall of 70+ companies, breakout discussion groups, and dedicated poster viewing and networking sessions. Thought leaders will present best practice case studies and joint partner presentations relevant to the technologies, research, and regulatory issues of battery technology advancements. The agenda will feature compelling talks, significant new developments, and important announcements. In fact, Sony chose the International Battery Seminar as the platform to first announce its lithium-ion technology in 1991.
