At the IAA MOBILITY 2023 Summit, 100 Startups will get the chance to present themselves among international industry leaders. With our startup packages you benefit from high visibility, easy organisation and access to exclusive networking events.

The new startup format was successfully introduced at the IAA MOBILIY 2021. 78 startups presented their innovative products and services to visitors and exhibitors. This is where we will pick up in September 2023! 

100 startups will present themselves in the startup areas at the Summit. Take the chance and apply for one of the limited spaces!

Benefit from our pre-built stand packages. In addition, take advantage of the immediate proximity to the largest exhibitors at the Summit to get in contact with international decision-makers and investors. In addition, we provide exclusive networking opportunities with our startup events such as the Founders Day.

The startup areas are directly linked to the Mobilitython - THE hackathon for the mobility scene. Here, startups take on the challenges of established companies. 

"IAA MOBILITY allowed us to present our new technologies to an extremly large and high-profile audience. For us, IAA MOBILITY was the kick-off to commercialize our technology." - Felix Poernbacher, Co-Founder Deep Drive
