The trade show and reception opened on Tuesday evening and invited everybody to join the networking with experts, colleagues and interested parties, to start expert discussions and look around the exhibition area. The BAE brand was again highly professional represented by the North American partner Action Battery Wholesalers and like the last years BAE was a Platinum Sponsor of the Battcon Conference. BAE was present with a very competent team on site, both from North America and Germany.
The next Battcon will take place from the 8th to 10th of May 2017 in Orlando, Florida.
