Covid-19 Update

Rather than schedule new dates, organisers have decided to postpone IAA Commercial Vehicles to its next scheduled spot in September 2022 (20-25.09.2022). It will also include an exclusive day for journalists on 19.09.2022. Organisers hope the COVID-19 pandemic will be managed better and allow for a successful physical edition at Messe Hannover. The 3G entry policy will be part of the prevention programme. Participants should be aware of the following as a result of this regulation:

  • Attendees must register in advance. On the day of their participation, they must present a valid badge or ticket, and also their ID as well as a 3G paper. 3G documents include written statements such as negative tests, certificates of recovery, and vaccination passports. Attendees should take note that negative testing results expire after 24 hours and must be renewed. To reinstate them, a PCR or rapid antigen test ought to be performed. Such a task can be done on-site at a dedicated testing centre. An immunisation passport must contain at least two injections of a vaccine, approved by the EU. Due to the introduced travel restrictions, the 3G papers must be provided upon arrival in Germany.


For the longest time, IAA Commercial Vehicles had been just part of the broader programme and product offerings at IAA Cars – now rebranded as IAA Mobility – running since 1897. This all changed in 1991, when the international trade fair grew too big, and IAA Commercial Vehicles as its down entity. The international trade fair handles commercial vehicles alongside broader tech and solutions surrounding transportation and logistics. What visitors encounter is the full breadth of the value chain – buses, trucks and trailers, special cars, lorries, containers, car bodies, repair and maintenance, transport logistics and workshop equipment. IAA Commercial Vehicles gives exhibitors their due platform to meet with buyers and grow their professional network. It’s also worth noting that this is where major breakthroughs in aerodynamics, safety and alternative drive systems are first presented. As a result, you’re in the perfect position to raise your profile among big industry players. 


IAA Commercial Vehicles follows a strict biannual schedule with editions slated for the year when IAA Mobility is not taking place. Rather than take place in Frankfurt like IAA Mobility, this trade fair is based in Hannover, Germany, where it’s brought to life at Messe Hannover. The Verband der Automobilindustrie, better known as VDE, takes on the role of official organiser and runs the fair’s editions over the course of eight days in total in late September. Admission is given to both industry professionals and the general public. Currently there are no set opening times for the next IAA Commercial Vehicles. Messe Hannover gives you options in terms of transportation. You can take several bus lines or decide to use the railway system as there are two light rail stations near the exhibition grounds. One way to beat the traffic to Hannover Airport, especially when in a hurry, is to use the helipad!
