IAA Mobility 2021 is the world’s largest mobility event. It will be held in Munich from 7 to 12 September 2021. It will be the first major international event in Germany since the easing of the lockdown restrictions.
German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel will open the IAA MOBILITY. Over 1,000 exhibitors and speakers will present innovations and concepts for the future of mobility. With a state-of-the-art concept, the IAA MOBILITY will link the major players in mobility with the big names in high-tech. It will be the first event worldwide to offer visitors a comprehensive array of test drives with the new vehicle models. All the main events at the IAA MOBILITY will be streamed; the IAA MOBILITY APP will provide visitors with orientation and information at the show itself.
“The IAA MOBILITY 2021 in Munich will be the largest and most modern mobility event in the world and is a perfect fit at a time when Europe has set out to be the world’s first climate-neutral continent. Traffic plays a major role in this scenario. We are already uniting the sectors – automotive, digital, bicycle and urban planning – that will belong together in the future. We will present new concepts and invite visitors to debate on the right path to a climate-neutral future.”Jürgen Mindel, Managing Director of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), organiser of the IAA MOBILITY.

IAA Mobility Blue Lane
Experience new cars with electric or hybrid powertrains or for HOVs live on a test route on the IAA Mobility Blue Lane. Starting at Königsplatz and Apothekenhof, the Blue Lane Road runs through the city and over the autobahn to the exhibition grounds in Riem. The well-signposted Blue Lane Bike for bicycles also runs from the downtown area to the exhibition grounds and back. On the Blue Lane Micromobility, visitors can travel between the various locations in the Open Space on e-scooters or e-bicycles, thereby trying out this form of mobility. The Blue Lane in the public transport system brings visitors from the downtown area via the U2 subway to the Summit and Conference in only 23 minutes. All IAA tickets include use of the public transport system in Munich on the day of their validity. All Blue Lanes are not exclusively IAA Mobility Routes and can thus be used by all transport participants.
