About the Conference

Building on the outstanding success of our launch European show in April 2017 and the fourth annual event in North America, the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference returns in 2018 having moved to larger home in Hanover next year as it continues to expand. Taking place on 15-17 May, the conference is co-located with The Battery Show Europe will combine the largest supply chain exhibition of its kind with an expert-led conference delivering insights into current technologies for developing sustainable and affordable hybrid and electric vehicles.

Co-located with The Battery Show Conference and Expo, the event will also explore current technologies for developing sustainable, efficient and affordable batteries.
