IAA Transportation 2022 will be held from 20 to 25 September in Hanover. This year’s focus is on logistics, transport, digitalization and energy transition, with the whole concept of the exhibition that seems to be deeply renewed. Starting by the name (below, the official logo), now quite different from previous IAA Commercial Vehicles. As a matter of fact, the goal is to become «leading international platform for logistics, commercial vehicles, buses and the transport sector», under the new motto “People and Goods on the move”.
IAA Transportation 2022: logistics and innovation
With its expanded event concept, then, the major exhibition networks the relevant manufacturers and suppliers from the commercial vehicles, buses and logistics sectors with leading tech providers. An important goal of the new concept is to focus more on the climate-neutral and technological transformation of the entire transport sector as an international platform.
«IAA Transportation is the leading trade show for transport, commercial vehicles and logistics», said Jürgen Mindel, VDA Managing Director. «Our successful concept for a corona-proof staging of IAA Mobility 2021 will also be used at IAA Transportation in Hanover: the current registration status makes it clear that the concept expansion has been positively received by the industry. There are already exhibitor registrations from more than forty countries. The high level of registrations is gratifying and also underlines the exhibitors’ desire to once again offer customers a live experience with the new products».
With the new format, we want to bring together urban planners, technology providers, food retailers and delivery services with logistics industry players, mayors and local politiciansJürgen Mindel, VDA Managing Director
