One Event for Three Connected Industries


Vehicle Electrification Expo, Battery Cells & Systems Expo and The Advanced Materials Show bring together three connected industries for two days of networking, lead generation and education at the NEC, Birmingham. A four-track, free conference featuring global experts covers the latest innovations and developments across these three exciting industries.


It is important for companies to stay informed and to form partnerships which will help them get to market with the right product at minimum cost and risk. Conferences like Vehicle Electrification Expo are a great way to do that.

Professor David Greenwood, Advanced Propulsion Systems, WMG

The role of the Vehicle Electrification Expo is to bring these inventive companies together to share ideas and initiate new collaborations that will drive the technology forward.

Alex Tylee-Birdsall, director and co-founder Drive System Design

To some extent, the developers of these technologies are still siloed. The role of the Vehicle Electrification Expo and Conference should be to help bring people together who have the same challenges and potentially equally applicable solutions across sectors.

Matt Boyle, Challenge Director, Driving the Electric Revolution challenge, at UK Research and Innovation

There are so many interconnected factors in play (such as technical, economic, political, environmental) that it is almost impossible to predict where the industry will be in 10 years’ time and which approaches will eventually prove to be successful for the OEMs. Vehicle Electrification Expo will provide a platform for those with the most convincing arguments to try to persuade the rest of us that their theories and predictions will prove to be the most accurate.
