The Benchmark World Tour is an annual series of investment seminars on the lithium ion battery supply chain and is in its fourth year.

This year the seminar will focus on lithium ion batteries versus solid state and vanadium flow and the impact this can have on the supply chain.

This year in Hong Kong we will also have a specialist focus on the energy and utility storage market and ask the question: has this been overlooked?
