The Batteries Event will cover all aspects of the circular economy value chain, starting from the production of the battery through raw materials, cell manufacturing, use and safety, management and applications, going through market trends, research and development, new technologies and finally closing the loop with a focus on recycling, second life and regulations.
International battery industry key players such as OEM, cell and pack manufacturers, end users, experts, researchers and recyclers will come together to discuss and exchange on new chemistries, manufacturing process, battery components, battery second life, recycling, regulation, future expectations and innovations.
The ambition is once again to be a must-attend event for those who want to meet with high level representatives and have a clear vision of the profound transformations to come, made possible by the massive growth of the battery industry in Europe.

Lyon, European Capital
of Smart Tourism 2019
Lyon combines accessibility, innovation and fantastic food. It’s a metropolis that puts people at the heart of its development.
Lyon has a great deal to offer: a central location in Europe combined with good access, excellent reception facilities and the charm of a 2,000-year-old city which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It’s not just a gastronomic capital with 20 starred chefs, it’s also a creative city in the fields of fashion, the arts and culture.
Its Roman architecture rubs shoulders with bold contemporary creations.
Lyon’s layout, featuring two rivers and three hills, makes this an unusual city, where you can travel to the new Confluence district from the Medieval and Renaissance Vieux-Lyon (Old Lyon) district by boat.
Lyon has the largest sustainable business and housing sector in France and has opened the International City of Gastronomy in the city’s former historic hospital.
Its gastronomic reputation goes hand in hand with the art of hospitality so greatly appreciated by visitors.
The “Cité internationale”: Event Site
It is a recent district in the city of Lyon. It was built from 1992 to 1999 by the architect Renzo Piano and the landscaper Michel Corajoud.
The complex is built around an indoor semi-covered pedestrian street. It is located between a loop of the Rhône and the “Parc de la Tête d’Or”. It occupies the space of the old Lyon fair. It’s a tertiary, cultural and tourist hub comprising offices, conference rooms, hotels, a casino, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Lyon, cinemas and an auditorium.
The site also hosts Interpol’s world headquarters.
