Novi, Michigan, July 26, 2013 – In a glowing endorsement, Mayor Bob Gatt of the city of Novi, Michigan, has welcomed the return of The Battery Show and the arrival of its new sister show, Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, for 2013:

Event Director Steve Bryan confirmed today that The Battery Show 2013 is set to be the biggest and most successful show yet: "Now in its fourth year, we are proud to have brought together our best-ever conference program, the largest exhibition hall and registrations from serious buyers and decision makers within the industry."

"With the launch of Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo alongside The Battery Show, the exhibit hall will feature well in excess of 300 exhibitors and thousands of attendees seeking out the latest power solutions."

Launched in 2010 and expanding year after year, The Battery Show is North America's largest free-to-attend exhibition and conference for the advanced battery industry, and the continent's premier showcase for the latest advanced battery technology solutions.

In partnership with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, The Battery Show highlights the many advances and breakthroughs in the advanced battery industry, and showcases developments in raw materials right through to battery pack systems. It provides the perfect platform to launch products, and an ideal environment to network and do business.
