SAVE THE DATE - AABC Europe to Return to Germany in 2020 from 12-16 January in Wiesbaden

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. 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 and beyond. 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:

Attend. Join 1,000 of your colleagues representing every level of the supply chain.
Learn. See the latest battery research by visiting 70+ posters.
Network. Choose from 11 networking roundtable discussions on Thursday morning.

Registration for 2019 was very encouraging with battery technologists from the following OEMs participating: Audi, BMWBlue Solutions, CEVT ABDaimler, FerrariFord, General Motors, Honda, HuaweiMagna Steyr, MazdaMercedes, Nissan, Opel, Porsche, PSA Peugeot CitroenRenault, Rolls Royce,  Scania, StihlSubaru, Toyota, Volkswagen, Williams, and Volvo.
