IAA MOBILITY 2023 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre and in downtown Munich  

This year, IAA MOBILITY 2023 will take place both at the New Munich Exhibition Center and in downtown Munich. The IAA Summit and IAA Conference at the New Munich Exhibition Center will be the meeting point for all trade visitors, where the mobility of the future with all its innovations and new developments will be presented and discussed in a social and political context - and at the same time the central place for networking. From September 5 to 8, 2023, more than 500 speakers will hold exciting keynotes, fireside chats and discussions on three stages and two dialog areas about the most exciting developments in future mobility, the future of cars and bicycles, road and rail, alternative drives and data-driven innovations, big visions and small political decisions. Among them are CEOs from all mobility segments such as Oliver Blume (CEO Volkswagen and Porsche), Carsten Spohr (CEO Lufthansa Group), Michael Peterson (Deutsche Bahn) and Cristiano Amon (CEO Qualcomm Technologies), as well as key opinion leaders such as Mars mission candidate Alyssa Carson.  

At the same time, the IAA Open Space brings tomorrow's mobility right into the heart of downtown Munich. Surrounded by art and culture, food concepts and live entertainment, visitors from all over the world will be able to experience sustainable, smart connected mobility solutions up close in the city's most prominent locations and learn about new, innovative mobility concepts in direct dialog with exhibitors. Moreover, visitors can test everything, from cars to e-scooters and e-bikes on test tracks. Open to everyone and free of charge.
