A STAGE FOR FUTURE MOBILITY: IAA Frankfurt
From “Tin Lizzie” to Micro-Vehicles
More than 100 years ago, mass motorization began. Then, the carriage-dominated street scene changed completely in 1908. By the end of the 1920s, the ‘Tin Lizzie’, the first Ford Model T car, was sold by the millions. Many carriage builders and coachmen had to give up. Some companies were turning into wagon factories, streetcar enterprises or car dealers. Today, the automotive industry itself faces the biggest change in history. One vision for the future even claims that in 15 years, no one will enter a car dealership and today’s babies could possibly be the first adults who no longer need a driver’s license. In order to cope with the increasingly “thick air” in the cities, emission control is a major topic and diesel driving bans, city tolls, charging stations for electric cars, as well as the attractiveness of the public transport are on everyone’s lips. Innovative micro-vehicles – so it is predicted – will compete with the car as a lifestyle object and status symbol within the next 5 years.
September 12th – 22nd, 2019 IAA & New Mobility World in Frankfurt
The above – and so much more – are the topics at the IAA, the International Motor Show. It is the most important mobility fair worldwide. Nearly one million visitors and journalists will experience the future of mobility in all its facets at the Frankfurt Motor Show. In an exhibition area of 230,000 m², more than 1,000 exhibitors present their product premieres. In addition to the symposia for trade visitors, a plethora of events complement the supporting program of the IAA in Frankfurt, especially the New Mobility World, which is the world’s most comprehensive platform for the mobility of the future with 5 thematic blocks and 3 event formats – it is the stage for future mobility and the platform for masterminds, entrepreneurs and decision-makers to discuss the future of mobility across all sectors. Representatives from the sectors telecommunication, energy and automotive as well as from public transport, municipalities, start-ups, consulting companies and the scientific community discuss and present solutions for our mobility of tomorrow. 2019 will focus on urban mobility, mobility as a service, clean and sustainable energy, connectivity and automation. In the exhibition area leading market participants and newcomers present their concepts for the mobility of tomorrow – from global tech firms to start-ups. In the Expo area with theme parks and demo areas future technologies will be presented.
Digital business models, autonomous driving, smart cities, alternative drives
Exciting topics are discussed, exhibited, illuminated. Not without humor, for example, there is the question “Everything electric – no?” The whole world is discussing the electric car, but what about hydrogen power? After all, fuel cell technology definitely has distinct prospects! Under the slogan “Driving Tomorrow”, the IAA Expo and the IAA Conference 2019 will focus on alternative powertrains and smart cities this year. It therefore will be exciting to experience what innovations will be presented for hydrogen and urban development in 2019.
