Battcon is now in its 24th year and is a mix of industry-specific presentations, panels, seminars, trade shows and workshops. This is the opportunity for over 400 storage battery users to gather at Battcon for lots of networking which focuses on selection, design, application and maintenance of stationary battery systems. There is also the opportunity for professional development, and people working in data centers, telecom and utility industries can all network and learn from leading industry experts.

Why is battcon different to other battery shows?

Battcon is essentially an educational event that gathers engineers, manufacturers and users and allows them to keep up to date on the latest industry news and trends and the best practices when working with stationary batteries. The conference itself is an intense learning experience, and there are presentations, discussion panels and even breakout workshops led by battery experts. Each year the conference grows with more users and both novices in the industry and industry professionals like Mike Nispel.Mike Nispel, battery expert, will be attending this year.
