The Battery Show Europe Set for October
The advanced battery technology trade show is slated to be held in person from October 14-16 in Stuttgart, Germany.
The Battery Show Europe 2020 is still on for Oct. 14 through Oct. 16 at the Messe Stuttgart trade center. The event was initially planned for April 28 through April 30 at the same venue, but organizers postponed the program in March due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The three-day conference and expo will feature more than 400 industry suppliers, including 3M, Panasonic Electric Works, Siemens, and Mitsubishi Electric. The speaker lineup features more than 90 industry leaders and experts from over 80 countries. Speakers hail from CATL, Eaton, Renault, Volvo, Nissan, and other top companies in the battery market.
The agenda includes keynotes, talks, and panels discussing trends, opportunities, and challenges across multiple content tracks, such as the evolution of battery chemistry, industry markets and forecasts, electric vehicle and hybrid vehicle technology, battery manufacturing, the future of lithium-ion batteries, and battery management and charging.
Pre-conference workshops will take place Oct. 13, covering battery safety training, off-road vehicle electrification, raw materials pricing for EVs, and lithium-ion battery heat generation.
On-site registration for Battery Show Europe ranges from €795 for a one-day pass to €2,590 for all-access registration. Early bird discounts are available until September 6. The expo pass is free.
Informa PLC, the organizer of Battery Show Europe, is hosting the event in conjunction with the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, held at the same venue from Oct. 14 to Oct. 16.
Informa has stated its commitment to hosting the in-person programs in October, but the team is closely monitoring public health guidance. Earlier this year, the organization’s 10th annual Battery Show North America was shifted into a digital format and rescheduled to Sept. 2021 in Novi, Michigan.
Ahead of Battery Show Europe 2020, Informa proactively established health and safety standards to ensure social distancing and hygiene measures such as deep cleaning and sanitation of high-touch areas, food and beverage stations, no-contact registration, personal protective equipment, screening and contact tracing.
Messe Stuttgart, the venue hosting Battery Show Europe, states on its website that cancellation, postponement and rescheduling of events is organizers’ responsibility.
In June, Baden-Württemberg government officials announced that trade shows with more than 500 attendees would be permitted starting Sept.1.
