Read what some of our previous exhibitors, speakers and visitors have had to say about The Battery Show:
"The Battery Show is the most successful event in the industry... the quality of leads and booth traffic is outstanding, we simply love it that’s why we keep coming back!"
"This is the most well attended show I’ve been to in a long time and the number of exhibitors is impressive. Everybody in the industry should be here."
“This is our third year and so far it’s been excellent. Already in this show we’ve surpassed our number from all three days of last year and we're not through Day 2!"
“The Battery Show is bigger and better every year. The show is absolutely the premier energy storage event not only in the Detroit area, but also in the nation. At the Show, NextEnergy (Dan Radomski) presented our work on a supply chain and asset mapping study, highlighting results from hundreds of industry interviews and site visits. We were also involved in something new this year called The Matchmaking Forum, where we connected companies looking to expand their business operations in the US and had over one hundred meetings lined up. We’re looking very forward to seeing what The Battery Show 2014 has in store, as well.”

"I believe this is one of the best organized conferences, if not THE BEST, I have ever attended. The technical content was extensive but not overwhelming. The exhibitors were well represented, and the exhibition area was easy to navigate. Of course, the foods, drinks and networking opportunities are great too. I am looking forward to returning to the Show next year...and years after."

“We met with a lot of potential customers during the week and that made the show worth it for us. Networking night on Monday was great because we were able to meet people and get an initial introduction established. We had many people who were referred to visit our booth on Tuesday based off networking contacts made on Monday.”

“Well obviously being from the Detroit area the location is a great attractor, but the show’s bringing people from around the world here too. What I found most useful is the structure of the conferences; they’re very engaging and very diverse. I think there’s been a terrific improvement in the conference over the years of coming here and that’s becoming a major attraction for the show…In addition to the trade show floor which is getting much better participation than I had hoped for and it’s drawing in a lot of my colleagues”.
