From Sept. 7 – 12, visitors will be offered a show with over 500 prominent exhibitors and over 500 spectacular events in downtown Munich. The currently valid hygiene measures will be observed, of course; a sophisticated hygiene concept has been developed for all areas. An overview of the IAA in five key points is presented below.


Under the motto "What will move us next," you can experience the most recent mobility solutions and learn more about technical advances along the path to climate neutrality. This year the show will extend into the downtown area for the first time – to exactly the place where the future of mobility will take place. New live formats, including talks and discussion groups inviting visitors to take part, will round off the program.


Experience innovations: The Open Space

The Open Space brings the IAA MOBILITY into the downtown area and generates enthusiasm with a setting both urban and historic. Discover the latest innovations from automobile and bicycle companies on Munich's most well-known squares.

Exciting product presentations will take place on Königsplatz. Numerous exhibitors – including Ford, Michelin, Polestar und IBM – will present their products here. In Arcisstraße, brands such as Dacia, WEY and Valeo will display their innovative products. The Blue Lane Road starts at Königsplatz. Shuttle busses and test-drive vehicles will bring you quickly to the exhibition grounds or Brienner Straße.

The Blue Lane Road connects the Open Spaces and is the site of the Blue Lane Micromobility, with which you can explore the downtown area on e-scooters and e-bicycles. 

The Kaiserhof – or Imperial Palace – in the Munich Residence offers the perfect backdrop for the mobility solutions of the Bavarian State Ministry of Housing, Building and Transport (BMVI) and the show "Open minded for new visions." On top of this you can let yourself be amazed by the art installations and interactive stations in the Brunnenhof. 

In the mood for an individual test drive? The Apothecary Courtyard serves as the departure and arrival point.

A hot tip for avid cyclists and vintage car enthusiasts!

The Open Space Extended is in the direct vicinity of the IAA Summit. Your IAA Experience Ticket gives you access to the exciting test tracks and routes. Avid cyclists and vintage car enthusiasts are sure to get their money's worth here. The IAA Heritage by Motorworld is a special highlight; this is a forum and commercial platform full of classic automobiles and exclusive rare finds. The area is rounded off by exhibitors representing the segments of sports cars and motor sports. 

Blue Lane Road: a premiere in Germany

Only climate-friendly vehicles are allowed to travel on the 12-km-long test route connecting the downtown area and the exhibition grounds, i.e. e-cars, hybrid vehicles and HOVs (carrying at least 3 persons). The selection of vehicles available for test drives is as diversified as the IAA MOBILITY itself. Are sporty SUVs your thing? In that case, the AUDI Q4 sportsback 50 e-tron quattro could be your cup of tea. Or would you rather have a small car for the city so you can find a parking spot faster? Then the smart EQ fortwo cabrio is perhaps the perfect city zipster for you. What’s more, an e-sportscar best described in superlatives – namely the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo – is waiting for you to test drive it.

And that's not the only way to get from A to B quickly. On the Blue Lane Road, you can get to – and return from – the Open Space in the downtown area by the fastest route!

IAA Summit & Conference

The IAA MOBILITY Summit is the most important meeting point of the year for the mobility industry. And you can be right there in the middle of it: from Sept. 10 – 12, the Summit on the exhibition grounds is open to the general public.
