IAA MOBILITY Conference – Our Stages, Your Visions

Our conference formats provide the ideal foundation for the IAA’s content. From September 7 to 12, stakeholders from all sections of society, industry and poli-tics will meet to discuss and showcase their visions and outline their viewpoints on the sustainable mobility of the future.

Dialog and networking platform for visions and viewpoints

The English-language IAA Conference is a central and fully-integrated component of IAA MOBILITY 2021. The world’s foremost thought leaders, decision-makers, visionaries and experts from all sections of society, industry, politics and science will come together on four conference stages and in the Munich trade fair grounds’ Summit halls to discuss the sustainable, social, technical, economic and political aspects of the global mobility of the future.

At the IAA Conference in German language on Marienplatz and in the exhibition halls, stakeholders from across society, politics, science and industry will come together from Friday afternoon, when the Summit opens to end consumers, to discuss national and regional issues and their impact on our shared future mobility. 

Key topics in both conference formats include autonomous driving, design, electrification and zero-emission mobility, last mile, micromobility & (e-)bikes, rural mobility, mobility as a service & shared mobility, smart city and urban mobility, fuels of the future & alternative drives, digitalization and connectivity, sustainability, road safety, barrier-free mobility, cyber security, eSports & gaming, artificial intelligence & robotics, post-coronavirus mobility and urban air mobility.

We also have a new program of Master Classes and Workshops in English and German for B2B, B2C and the general public, with a focus on developing and presenting collaborative and practical solutions.

Our virtual conference and exhibition formats for B2B and B2C round off IAA MOBILITY as a holistic, global and hybrid event, confirming IAA MOBILITY as one of the most important and largest future mobility forums in the world.  

Conference formats at IAA Mobility

The IAA MOBILITY Conference is IAA MOBILITY’s English-language, B2B conference and the content-based foundation of the Summit.

The IAA Conference team is organizing all of the content for the IAA Conference. We are committed to diversity in terms of gender, nationality, industry, company size and, of course, opinion. Technical, social and economic topics relating to the mobility of the future all have a home here.

The IAA Conference’s core program is open to all trade visitors, youngsters and press representatives with a Summit ticket.

The primary mission of IAA Conference in German language is to facilitate collaborative discussions on the mobility of the future from a regional-social, political, ecological and economic perspective, to break down prejudices and to understand positions.

From September 7 to 12, 2021, the stage on Marienplatz will offer visitors a diverse and attractive program with an exciting selection of dialog and workshop formats.

From the afternoon of Friday, September 10 to September 12, IAA Conference in German language will also be extended to the stages of the exhibition grounds. This will give non-B2B visitors the opportunity to visit the Summit.

Our Corporate Master Classes give IAA Mobility visitors the chance to expand their knowledge and skills, even beyond the content showcased during the IAA Conference.

As an exhibitor, you have the opportunity to present your company in an educational setting, develop new strategies together with participants, provide training input and position yourself as an expert and opinion leader in your field.
