International speakers confirmed for IAA Mobility conference

IAA Mobility has published its first list of speakers for the IAA Conference.

This year’s conference will be held in the Munich exhibition centre at the IAA Summit from September 5 to 8, 2023.

With more than 500 visionaries, stakeholders, and decision makers, the IAA Conference is described by the organisers as “the most important international forum for all trade visitors from every segment of the mobility industry”.

Dr. Stefan Hartung, CEO, Robert Bosch GmbH, said: “We at Bosch are hard at work on shaping the future of mobility. It’s important to us that we take the public along on this journey with us, which is why dialogue formats like the IAA Conference are very welcome.

“I’m looking forward to providing insight into the developments at Bosch – especially in electromobility, automated driving, and software – at IAA Mobility this year.”

Christophe Périllat, CEO at Valeo, added: “The automotive industry, and the mobility sector in general, are undergoing the greatest turning point in their history: Our industry’s contribution to decarbonizing the world.

“It will be difficult and have many challenges, but the speed at which the entire industry has adapted to this transition is astonishing. Valeo has been preparing for this for a long time, and is playing its part with its technology for the automotive industry and new types of mobility.”

Further speakers include Martin Brudermüller (CEO BASF), Arnd Franz (CEO Mahle), Dr. Brian Hongdi Gu (Vice Chairman Xpeng), Meredith Glaser (Executive Director Urban Cycling Institute), Thomas Ingenlath (CEO Polestar), Hildegard Müller (President VDA), Sandra Wolf (CEO Riese & Müller) and several more.

The IAA Conference will be held on three stages in the IAA Summit halls at the Messe München-Riem as well as at the two dialogue spaces “Visionary Clubhouse” and “Smart Mobility Space, powered by PwC”.

Topics such as connectivity & data, sustainability, and urban mobility but also the potential of Generative AI for the mobility industries will offer a rich variety of perspectives of the mobility of the future.

Keynotes, sessions, and fireside chats will offer networking opportunities over a four-day span.

All topics will be covered every day so that visitors to the IAA Summit will have the opportunity to be part of the mobility discussion.

Most items on the agenda will be held in English, and the contents will be curated by the IAA Conference team with support from its partners.
