The IAA Commercial Vehicles is the world’s leading trade show for mobility in the field of commercial vehicles, transportation and logistics.

It is the platform where the most important and the most numerous world premieres are displayed – and a large proportion of them are exhibited by suppliers (2016: 72%). The IAA, unlike any other automotive trade show, demonstrates both high quality and quantity as it reflects the entire value-added chain. Traditionally, suppliers are by far the largest exhibitor group (nearly 50%).
