    The IAA Conference is the platform for opinion leaders, visionaries, and experts from the logistics and transportation industry, and as such is the cornerstone of IAA TRANSPORTATION.

    The IAA Conference at this year's IAA TRANSPORTATION lays the groundwork for the sustainable, social, technical, economic, and political aspects of global transportation. International opinion leaders from all relevant industries will jointly discuss the challenges facing us currently, and will present their solutions and visions for the global and regional transportation of the future. 

    Specific themes on 2 stages

    The IAA TRANSPORTATION programme consists of curated theme days on the Main Stage, and the exhibitor programme of the Industry Forum. It offers the perfect balance of discussion and B2B networking for all sectors of the transportation industry. 

    Main Stage
    Visitors to IAA can look forward to exciting discussions and inspirational presentations on the Main Stage in Hall 18 from 20/09 to 23/09. The schedule is based on 4 theme days that shed light on the most important topics in the field of international transportation from 4 perspectives:

    20/09/2022 Logistics 
    The logistics and commercial vehicle industry is currently faced with many challenges. The COVID pandemic has affected companies in these sectors, and manufacturers, suppliers, logistics companies, and all clients and customers have felt the effects of ongoing supply chain issues, the war in Europe and resulting energy scarcity, drastic steps to protect the environment, and sharply rising prices. The "Logistics" day is devoted to EU policies and challenges in the logistics industry, global supply chain solutions, and the question of which CO2-neutral motorisation the industry will use in the future. The theme day is overseen by our partner DSLV (Bundesverband Spedition und Logistik e.V.) and our sponsor Ericsson. 

    21/09/2022 Trade & Logistics 
    The sustainability of the logistics industry is a constant topic of international trade. It begins with the supply of goods and their production, and ends with the customer. The movement of these products into trade and delivery to the consumer are important components of this value-added chain. The theme day "Trade & Logistics" addresses global trade, the challenges of the last stage in this process, and visions for sustainable and autonomous logistics in the future. This theme day is overseen by our partner HDE (Handelsverband Deutschland). Information on potential sponsoring can be found here.

    22/09/2022 Infrastructure 
    Infrastructure is the central topic in the logistics industry, and it is what transportation companies depend on the most. But infrastructure is no longer just roads and lay-bys. The "Infrastructure" theme day concerns international standards and the comprehensive expansion of the charging infrastructure and transportation networks. In addition to the discussion about the appropriate infrastructure for various engine technologies, it also concerns the expansion of combined transportation and the possibilities of international and communal digitisation. This theme day is overseen by our partner BDEW (Bundesverband der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft e.V.) and our sponsor Air Products.

    23/09/2022 Municipal Transport 
    Public transport is widely considered to be one of the key solutions for sustainable and diverse mobility in the future. Decision makers and experts will discuss the next milestones and most pressing questions of public transport on the theme day "Municipal Transportation". What opportunities await transportation companies on the path to sustainable services, and what are customers demanding? How can new solutions be integrated in older cities, and what can companies do to cover the needs of people in rural areas? The theme day is overseen by our partner HDE (Handelsverband Deutschland). Information on potential sponsoring can be found here.

    Industry Forum in Hall 13

    Exhibitors and partners of IAA TRANSPORTATION will present exciting topics, discussions, presentations, and pitches at the Industry Forum in Hall 13. Exhibitors will be able to curate their own sessions and present their visions and solutions for the transportation industry. The stage is smaller and more approachable than the Main Stage, and offers participants and speakers an atmosphere of more intimate discussion. The wide range of exciting topics from 20/09 to 23/09 is also part of the conference. 

    Freely accessible for IAA visitors

    IAA TRANSPORTATION is largely held in English, and is accessible to all IAA visitors with the exception of the opening ceremony. Due to limited capacities, we recommend showing up to the session you wish to attend on time. There are no seat reservations for the Main Stage and Industry Forum.

    We will release a provisional schedule for both stages shortly.
