On-Demand Access Now Available for Virtual Event

100 presentations, 23 posters, and 8 tutorials are now available for On-Demand access. Registered virtual participants were provided access through an email from Pathable. If you have not received your login, please contact us now. If you would like to purchase On-Demand access, you can do so online here now.

Virtual participation at the International Battery Seminar was introduced in 2015, and given the groundbreaking improvements in this technology, the 2020 virtual event – leveraging industry leader Pathable's technology – delivered even greater educational and networking benefits to all participants.

One of the most significant benefits of a virtual event is that you can now view more presentations. Join your favorite speakers live, and then access the others on-demand at your convenience. No more FOMO or choosing between multiple presentations taking place at the same time. Other benefits include facilitated networking, an integrated scheduling tool, virtual exhibit booths, posters, live chat, matchmaking, roundtables, product directories, and much more.

We are excited about this year's virtual International Battery Seminar, and invite you to review the updated agenda using the links below.

The Longest Running Annual Battery Event

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. Attendance has more than doubled since joining Cambridge EnerTech in 2015!
