Founded 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. For example, Sony chose the International Battery Seminar as the platform to first announce its lithium-ion technology in 1991, an accomplishment that has since gone on to change the world.
Nearly 1,000 battery researchers, representing some of the most successful and famous brands in the world - like 3M, Amazon, Apple, BASF, Black & Decker, BMW, Bosch, BYD, Dell, Dow Chemical, Dyson, Facebook, Fiat Chrysler, Fitbit, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Google, Honda, Hitachi, Hyundai, Intel, John Deere, LG, Mercedes-Benz, Medtronic, Microsoft, Motorola, Nissan Motor Company, Panasonic, Philips, Qualcomm, Samsung, SharkNinja, Subaru, Texas Instruments, Toyota, Uber, Volvo, and hundreds more - convened in Fort Lauderdale for the 36th Annual International Battery Seminar & Exhibit.
