Facts & Figures about the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016

66th IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016 in Hannover
Leading International Trade Fair for Mobility, Transportation and Logistics


The origins of the IAA can be traced back to more than 100 years. In 1897, 8 motor vehicles were exhibited to the public at the Bristol Hotel in Berlin. From these humble beginnings, a regular exhibition was established that, due to its high visitor turnout, had to be separated into an alternating exhibition of passenger cars and commercial vehicles in 1991. In odd-numbered years the IAA Cars is held in Frankfurt; even-numbered years see the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hannover.
