Automotive Energy Storage Systems 2018

FUEL AND ALTERNATIVE ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS: TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENTS AND REGULATIONS

Date: March 7 and 8, 2018

Venue: The Sheraton Detroit Novi Hotel, 21111 Haggerty Rd., Novi, MI 48375

 

Sponsored by:

The ITB Group’s 19th annual technical conference provided a forum where leading industry experts convened to discuss and showcase the latest developments and innovations related to fuel systems (materials, tanks, pump modules, components), SCR systems, water injection systems for gasoline engines, and alternative energy systems including fuel cells, PHEV technologies and OEM strategies.

25 presentations over 7 sessions from key suppliers and research institutions set the stage for an excellent learning environment while new innovations and ideas sparked intriguing conversations throughout the event. The keynote presentation by The University of California, Berkeley provided excellent insight to future transportation needs and trends with discussion elements focusing on changing demographics, new mobility services, consumer preferences and connectivity/big data revolutions.

ITB also employed three live survey polling sessions during the event to give a voice to the attendees. Real time results shined a light on the group’s views and challenges they face in regards to important industry issues. Sample results are shown below:

In total, 320 attendees (over 75 OEM engineers) participated in the event and everyone engaged in excellent networking and business development opportunities. Meetings were held, companies were promoted, relationships built and collaborations plans were set in motion.  22 companies also showcased their latest products and solutions and gained valuable exposure to top level decision makers in the adjacent exhibit hall and foyer area.

Conference feedback has once again been very positive and planning for the 2019 conference, taking place on March 6 and 7, 2019 in Novi, Michigan has already begun.  Interested to take part next year and connect with current and future customers? Opportunities to present, sponsor and/or exhibit are available. Please contact Mr. Bryan Eldredge, Program Manager – Conferences if you have any questions.
