The LEV Conference to be held on 4 and 5 October in Cologne will cover the topics regulations, markets, marketing and technology. Industry players interested in presenting papers may apply for a place on the program until 25 August. The LEV Conference will be followed by the INTERMOT fair from 6 to 10 October at the same venue in Cologne.
The annual LEV Conference organized by ExtraEnergy is one of the biggest of its kind in the world.
This year the conference will take place on 4 and 5 October (in English) in the German city of Cologne. The INTERMOT of Kölnmesse GmbH will follow directly thereafter, when 2-wheelers of all kinds will be on show. Participants in the LEV Conference will be given free entrance to INTERMOT on the second day of the 4-day fair.
Electric 2-wheelers have finally come to the attention of the public as niche products. Now, manufacturers have to stay on the ball and make the correct decisions for their future success. How is the market developing? Which new motors are entering the market? What is the latest in battery technology? Where lies potential for cost-cutting? The answers to these questions will help manufacturers compete successfully against the competition in a growing market.
Register your participation in the LEV Conference before 4 September for a handsome discount.
Students may register at a reduced price.
The themes of the conference can be divided in two - regulations, markets and marketing (to be covered on day 1) and technology (day 2).
