From September 12 to 22, trade visitors and the general public convene to see for themselves the hottest brands, suppliers and newcomers in the industry, as well as innovative mobility service providers, high-tech companies and start-ups from all over the world.

And you, too, can be part of the biggest mobility event of the year with its distinctive four formats.

IAA Conference – Let’s talk mobility

How are society, business, indeed our whole way of life changing and how does this affect our mobility? What can new technologies offer us? What does digitalization and connectivity mean for our automotive needs? Answers to these and many more questions are the focus of the new IAA Conference on four stages in Hall 5. It forms the contextual basis of the IAA and from September 11 offers five days of interesting talks, stories, debates, keynotes and more on future mobility.

The IAA Conference thus launches the discussion on such hot topics as artificial intelligence, infotainment, alternative drives, solutions for climate change, smart cities and the sharing economy. It also takes the ideas to a higher level with an impressive line-up of over 200 top CEOs, visionaries, unconventional thinkers and inspirational figures from the worlds of science, politics, society and the international automotive and high-tech scene. And you, too, can join in the dialog.

IAA Experience – Pure driving fun

Cars are a sensual experience: whether concentrating on the next curve, feeling the power of the engine or the thrill of the speed. Visit the IAA Arena in the central outdoor area and take the wheel of some of the premiered vehicles as well as current models presented by your favorite marque.
