Partnership announced at the Battery Experts Forum
Munich, March 2018 – As part of the eMove360° Europe 2018 International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 – electric – connected – autonomous, organizer MunichExpo will once again hold a congress accompanying the exhibition, the eMove360° Conferences. A key topic is battery technology, the heart of electric mobility, both in economic and technical terms. Organizer MunichExpo has entered into a partnership with two very renowned companies in this sector for this central topic: BMZ GmbH, one of the largest European battery manufacturers, and Batteryuniversity GmbH, an independent test laboratory for batteries of all technologies, will organize the Battery Conference together with Messe München within the eMove360° Conferences. The congress will be held in parallel to the eMove360° Europe 2018 (16-18 October 2018) on the grounds of Munich Fair. Two days will be spent exclusively on batteries for electric vehicles and all related aspects along the entire value chain.
In addition to the definition of the conference content, BMZ and its subsidiary Batteryuniversity will also moderate the individual sessions of the Battery Conference and cooperate with MunichExpo in the acquisition of speakers and conference participants. Furthermore, both companies will also use the opportunity to present their innovations at a large booth to the international expert audience at the eMove360 ° Europe 2018.
“Battery technology and thus the range of electric vehicles are two key criteria for the mass market suitability of electric mobility. It is therefore very important to us to bring together industry experts to discuss solutions that will help us to drive this technology forward and thus e-mobility as a whole. We have already done so very successfully at the Battery Experts Forum 2018 and are very pleased that we can now create another international platform with the eMove360° Battery Conference, “says Sven Bauer, CEO of BMZ GmbH.
“The world’s largest trade show for Mobility 4.0 and one of the global players for lithium-ion battery system solutions are joining forces to jointly promote New Mobility. In the cooperation with BMZ and Batteryuniversity we see a very meaningful partnership, which in addition to new impulses for our congress brings us closer to the Asian manufacturers in this segment “, adds Robert Metzger, Managing Director of MunichExpo and organizer of the eMove360° Europe 2018 and the eMove360° Conferences.
Last year, eMove360 ° Europe was able to significantly expand its status as the world’s leading and largest trade fair for electric mobility and autonomous driving. More than 300 exhibitors from more than 25 countries with an international share of about 44 percent were very delighted about this significant growth. Preparations for the next edition are already going on at full throttle: From October, 16-18, 2018 at the eMove360° Europe 2018 – International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 – electric – connected – autonomous in Halls A5 and A6 at the Munich Trade Fair Center, everything revolves around the big societal question of how we can shape the mobility of the future.
The eMove360 ° Europe 2018 will take place from October, 16-18 on the grounds of Messe München, Entrance East and is open for bookings at https://www.emove360.com.
