The HiQ Knowledge Bar Tour starts with a full house in Gothenburg

Today marks the start of this year’s tour of the Knowledge Bar, HiQ’s highly appreciated event for clients and other stakeholders.

The tour starts in a fully booked Gothenburg Concert Hall, and during the coming two months, around 3,000 guests will attend the Knowledge Bar and take part in know-how, inspiration and live music.

“It will be a perfect mix of knowledge and entertainment. We will hear some of the best speakers in the business talking about the hottest subjects, such as eHealth, Virtual Reality and IT in school, just to name a few. We are also glad to have the best live band on the Nordic IT scene, HEO, on stage together with Dregen. They will raise the roof,” says Peter Häggström Lindecrantz, Head of Corporate Communications at HiQ.

During the autumn, the Knowledge Bar comes to Gothenburg, Linköping, Malmö, Karlskrona, Västerås, Stockholm and Helsinki. The theme this year is ”A better life by technology”, an area in which HiQ is a passionate specialist. The guests will also be entertained by, for example, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, top-class dancers and HiQ’s own band HEO, as well as rock star Dregen, with whom HiQ has worked for many years.

“The Knowledge Bar started around 15 years ago as a simple client pub in HiQ’s office. The development since then has been really amazing. Today, it’s one of the biggest events on the IT scene and attracts thousands of guests. The Knowledge Bar is an amazing opportunity for us to share our know-how and treat our guests to a really fun evening,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
