Because the vehicle is increasingly also acting as an intelligent assistant or becoming a space for immersive experience in virtual realities," says Jürgen Mindel, VDA Managing Director for IAA MOBILITY.

"IAA MOBILITY is an ideal platform for Samsung to showcase our extensive product portfolio of component solutions for the automotive industry, which is unmatched in the field. As a reliable business partner, we collaborate with our customers to shape the connected mobility of tomorrow based on our 'Open Collaboration' approach, and we are already looking forward to the lively exchange with many new inspirations at this unique trade fair," says Dermot Ryan, CEO of Samsung Electronics' components business in EMEA.

100 international startups provide answers and B2B speed dating promotes exchange.

In addition to the world's largest mobility and tech companies, 100 international startups will present their ideas for digital and climate-friendly mobility at the IAA Summit. They will have the opportunity to present themselves to the industry's leading companies. The startups come from Germany, the United Kingdom, Israel, Netherlands, Austria, Scotland, Switzerland, Singapore, Spain and the United States. The startups take advantage of turnkey booth packages to cost-effectively position themselves in vicinity of the larger exhibitors at the IAA Summit and communicate directly with international decision makers and investors.

"ADASKY's sensor innovation significantly contributes to increasing road safety and enabling autonomous driving regardless of visibility conditions. Therefore, it is important for us to engage in dialogue with the international automotive industry. IAA MOBILITY is the ideal platform for this topic, which concerns the safety of tomorrow's mobility," says Yakov Shaharabani, CEO of ADASKY.

To support networking at IAA MOBILITY, the company "Mobility Makers" has been engaged. Mobility Makers facilitates connections and collaborations in the field of sustainable mobility. In so-called "B2B Speed Dating," participants are brought together with companies, startups, policymakers, venture capital firms, or journalists in multiple 10-minute one-on-one conversations based on interest.

Additionally, all startups benefit from special events, such as the "Founders Day," an exclusive networking opportunity. Summit visitors can expect product ideas in the areas of artificial intelligence, sensors, electromobility, charging infrastructure, Mobility as a Service, circular economy, hydrogen propulsion, and concepts related to last-mile, sharing, or cycling.
