It will be the event's third consecutive year at the venue, located in Birmingham's developing East Side.

Organised by the University of Birmingham, the annual conference is the only UK technical platform bringing together industry researchers from across Europe to discuss the latest fuel cell and hydrogen developments.

The two-day event (25-26 May) will include keynote speakers, networking workshops, breakout and student sessions, and a conference dinner. A centrepiece featuring vehicles from Toyota and Riversimple will be on display in the atrium.

Neil Anderson, director of marketing, communications and events at Millennium Point, said: "We are proud to show our support to the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Technical Conference once again this year. With all the changes that are taking place across the city, including the development of HS2, it’s great that we can bring influential industry leaders together to discuss key issues and trends that may affect Birmingham in the future.

"The conference allows us to attract visitors to the city and highlights our ethos of science, technology and learning further."

Dr Aman Dhir, centre manager at the University of Birmingham’s chemical engineering department, added: "The conference has been extremely successful in previous years, and with transport links rapidly developing in the city there’s no better time to highlight how the advancement of fuel cells are used to power transport, homes and businesses."
