Wissmann: IAA is the trade show for topics of the future
Preparations for world’s most important mobility show are running at full speed – New Mobility World has the latest developments in digitization, automation, electric mobility and new mobility services
“The preparations for the world’s most important mobility trade show, the 67th International Motor Show (IAA) Cars, are running at full speed. The IAA is the competitive marketplace for brands and new developments, and it is the only major trade fair in the world to showcase the entire value chain. And since 2015 it has added the New Mobility World focusing on topics for tomorrow’s mobility,” stressed Matthias Wissmann, President of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), speaking about the IAA that will take place in Frankfurt am Main in September and is organized by the VDA.
“So far, over 50 passenger car brands have registered for the exhibition, including the largest auto makers from Europe, the US and Asia. Furthermore, we have registrations from new Asian manufacturers who will be present at the IAA for the first time. They have chosen to exhibit at the leading trade show. That underscores the international reputation of the IAA. Then there are also many hundreds of suppliers. We currently have a very good number of registrations,” Wissmann emphasized. Once again the visitors can look forward to the most interesting brands and models – because nine out of ten of the most popular and highest-value brands will be represented at the IAA.
