World's largest mobility event starts in September 

August 22, 2021:  More than 1,000 exhibitors and speakers – world's largest mobility conference – over 100 world premieres – an opportunity to experience autonomous driving – over 250 test vehicles for visitors – biggest bicycle event in Europe – first large-scale event in Germany after the lockdown 
Berlin/Munich, Germany - 18 Aug. 2021 - The IAA MOBILITY 2021 will be held in Munich from Sept. 7 - 12 and will thus be the first major international event in Germany since the easing of the lockdown restrictions. 

On Sept. 7 German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel will open the IAA MOBI LITY, where more than 1,000 exhibitors and speakers will present innovations and concepts for the future of mobility. With a state-of-the-art concept, the IAA MOBILITY will link the major players in mobility with the big names in high- tech. It will be the first event worldwide to offer visitors a comprehensive array of test drives with the new vehicle models. All the main events at the IAA MOBILITY will be streamed; the IAA MOBILITY APP will provide visitors with orientation and information at the show itself. 

'The IAA MOBILITY 2021 in Munich will be the largest and most modern mobility event in the world and is a perfect fit at a time when Europe has set out to be the world's first climate-neutral continent. Traffic plays a major role in this scenario,' says Jürgen Mindel, Managing Director of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), organizer of the IAA MOBILITY. 'We are already uniting the sectors – automotive, digital, bicycle and urban planning – that will belong together in the future. We will present new concepts and invite visitors to debate on the right path to a climate-neutral future.' 
Christine von Breitenbuch, Project Manager for the IAA MOBILITY at Messe München, adds: 'We are thrilled that the IAA MOBILITY is taking place in Munich. The city is a global magnet attracting visitors from Germany, Europe and the entire world to directly experience the things that will shape our daily life in the future. We have put together a great program for all trade visitors, automobile and bicycle enthusiasts, and families. The trip to Munich will be worth the effort – be sure to plan at least two days for the show.'

'What will move us next'

The heading will be illustrated by numerous cooperative ventures between OEMs and high-tech companies. Visitors can expect an innovative live experience with public formats and forums for the frequently contentious yet peaceful dialogue on the right path to a climate-neutral future for everyone. 
Design studies and concept cars 
The German automotive industry is still the world's most innovative. At the IAA MOBILITY numerous developments will be presented that make driving safer, cleaner and more digital including new driver-assist systems and technologies for highly automated driving. Visitors can glimpse what automobile design will look like in the e-mobility era. With design studies and concept cars, the exhibitors will demonstrate the new options created by the switch to e- mobility. Moreover, suppliers will be presenting AI-based high-performance processors capable of controlling all stages of automated and fully autonomous driving in tomorrow's cars.

On the way to climate neutrality 
The innovations along the path to climate neutrality are the over-arching theme of the IAA MOBILITY. The exhibitors will pres ent numerous new developments aiming to further improve the climate balance of vehicles and traffic. So far world premieres have been announced by Audi, BMW, Cupra, Dacia, Ford, Hyundai, Mercedes, Maybach, AMG, Smart, Mini, Renault and Volkswagen. The spectrum ranges from e-models and zero-emissions models with hydrogen powertrains to the latest generation of diesel and gasoline engines. Upcycling schemes – such as making tires out of recycled PET bottles – and the sustainability of the entire value-creation chain – will also be on display. Moreover, large parts of the IAA MOBILITY itself will be climate neutral. 

Connecting the high-tech and mobility industries 
The IAA MOBILITY links the key players in high-tech and mobility – an important step since the future of mobility will be dominated by digitization and vehicle connectivity. For many companies, new opportunities and business fields will emerge – ranging from the AI-based 'Industry 4.0' and e-mobility to smart data analytics, innovative automation and intelligent assistance systems. 

Premiere: driverless parking 
At the Messe München car park, visitors can try out autonomous parking: with the joint project 'Automated Valet Parking (AVP), ' the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) is presenting driverless parking. Together with 10 project partners, the VDA is showcasing – for the first time – the technical interaction between a large number of vehicle manufacturers and infrastructure providers. Automated parking demonstrations will take place several times daily in the Messe West Car Park. 

New formats and programs 
At the 'IAA Mobility Summit' on the exhibition grounds, trade visitors and experts from all over the world can share information on innovative mobility solutions and global innovations.

Automotive suppliers, over 75 startups and leading high-tech and IT companies will be represented in addition to the big-name automakers.

Starting at Königsplatz and Apothekenhof, theBlueLaneRoadrunsthroughthecityandoverthe autobahn to the exhibition grounds in Riem. The Blue Lane Bike for bicycles – well signposted, of course – also runs from the downtown area to the exhibition grounds and back. On the Blue Lane Micromobility, visitors can travel between the various locations in the Open Space on e-scooters or e- bicycles, thereby trying out this form of mobility. The Blue Lane in the public transport system brings visitors from the downtown area via the U2 subway to the Summit and Conference in only 23 minutes. All IAA tickets include use of the public transport system in Munich on the day of their validity. All Blue Lanes are not exclusively IAA Mobility Routes and can thus be used by all transport participants. 

All test vehicles can be booked on the 'IAA-MOBILITY App.' This app offers numerous functions such as a personalized IAA program, an overview of all exhibitors, current news, an interactive site plan, a program search function, and a guide to the IAA Conference. Via a clever matchmaking function, trade visitors can make interesting new contacts at the IAA MOBILITY.
