Apply to speak at the NMWL 2018!

Two stages, a conference program totaling more than 24 hours, and speakers from all over the world – the dialog at the New Mobility World Logistics will focus on topics that take us into the future. From now until April 22, you can submit your contributions via our “Call for Papers.”

Why not join the IAA Commercial Vehicles as a speaker? The FORUM at the New Mobility World is the most important conference format and forms the core of the IAA, covering all the substantive issues. It will include keynote addresses and discussions, where decision-makers, pioneers and visionaries debate current challenges and forward-looking topics, such as connected trucks, platooning, alternative powertrains and urban logistics solutions, with representatives of the media, politics, local government and academia. This will all take place from September 24 to 27, 2018, on two stages – the Main Stage and the Speakers’ Corner. The deadline for applications is 23:59 h on April 22, 2018.
