mechanisms and the pathway to thermal
runaway events can join Vidyu Challa,
technical director of DfR Solutions, for a
workshop on how to qualify lithium-ion cell
suppliers to prevent failures.
Shmuel De-Leon, CEO of Shmuel De-Leon
Energy, will also host a workshop covering
battery safety training. Attendees will develop
a full review of causes for battery safety events,
battery-handling safety practices, and more.
Speakers and roundtables
A big draw of the week is the speaker events,
sessions, and roundtables. Actor, author, and
environmental activist Ed Begley Jr, will close
the week by sharing the path he took to
eco-friendly transportation options.
Long before the days of electric vehicle buyer
waitlists and charging stations at grocery
stores, Begley was ahead of the curve by
driving around in a Taylor-Dunn electric cart.
Those looking to get in-depth with other
thought leaders at the expo are encouraged to
participate in inclusive roundtable sessions to
hear experts from infl uential companies unveil
critical market disruptors of the last year and
their predictions for the future.
There’s no better place to learn about the
latest battery and EV innovations, hear from
industry leaders, and network across the
greater community than The Battery Show.

But it’s not just about learning the latest
from the industry. Attendees also will be able
to take advantage of product demonstrations
and teardowns of some of the newest battery
design innovations, career guidance to position
professionals to be marketable as the industry
evolves, and networking activities including
speed networking and after-hours receptions.
Attendees will witness more than 25
companies showcase their latest technologies
and solutions in a series of 15-minute live
demonstrations at their booths.
The day before the show, attendees are
invited to three-hour intensive workshops
where they can explore topics in greater depth.
