IAA Transportation

The commercial transport industry's central hub for innovations

For the longest time, IAA Transportation 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 Transportation 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 Transportation 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 Transportation 2024

Organisers have decided to host IAA Transportation in September 2024 (17.09.2024-22.09.2024). The event will be held as a physical edition at Messe Hannover. At present, the venue does not have safety protocols such as the 3G entry policy due to the Bundestag removing the related domestic restrictions in April 2022. This has occurred as a result of the improving pandemic situation, which has also resulted in the removal of the travel restrictions.

IAA Transportation follows a strict biannual schedule with editions slated for the year when IAA Mobility is not taking place. Rather than taking 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 public. Currently, there are no set opening times for the next IAA Transportation. 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!
