Success for IAA Transportation 22
Revised IAA draws full exhibitor attendance for the first of the new style events at Hanover
IAA Transportation Clam a Huge Success
The first IAA TRANSPORTATION exhibition ended y successfully. Organisers, visitors and exhibitors reported satisfaction with the new concept, which covered the entire transport and logistics spectrum.
1,402 exhibitors from 42 countries and a total of 230 national and international speakers were represented at IAA TRANSPORTATION and they presented their technical innovations, developments and concepts for tomorrow's climate-neutral mobility.
“Following on from IAA MOBILITY, we have successfully developed and reinvented IAA TRANSPORTATION. We are now exhibiting the entire logistics spectrum, ranging from trucks to cargo bikes and delivery vans to parcel drones. This change has paid off as the tremendous response from exhibitors and visitors showed that our new approach was the right way to go", said VDA president Hildegard Müller at the close of IAA TRANSPORTATION in Hanover.
IAA TRANSPORTATION 2022 consolidated its position as the world's largest platform for the transport and logistics industry - around two-thirds of the exhibitors were international companies. Our visitors came from 72 countries.
The many global innovations that were presented here all focused on the electrification and climate neutrality of the drive train. The vehicle manufacturers presented a huge variety of electric and fuel cell-based drives as well as hydrogen combustion engines.
Bodywork and trailer exhibitors also presented a wide range of innovations that included electrified trailer axles and more especially, lightweight trailers that will reduce a tractor’s energy requirements. The bus manufacturers focused on the electrification of intercity buses and coaches.
The majority of the visitors rated IAA TRANSPORTATION’S new concept very positively. In particular, the range of innovations, the new models and the internationality of the exhibitors were rated as extremely good. Above all, the opportunity to try out new products for yourself proved to be very popular: IAA Test Drives, which was one of the experience formats, was given top marks by three quarters of the visitors.
The next IAA TRANSPORTATION will take place in Hanover from the 17th to 22nd September 2024.
