Battery Power 2017Ensuring Battery Safety & Compliance
Nothing can shake consumer faith faster than a recalled product. Products sitting in a warehouse rather than store shelves because of compliance or shipping issues can quickly erase a profit margin.

With the proliferation of battery-powered products - from cell phones to medical devices - the need to stay current with the latest standards, safety and legal issues is paramount. Join us in Dallas, May 17-18, for Battery Power 2017.

If your products depend on batteries, or if your operations are battery-intensive, this is a must-attend event.
