Industry Relevance 

AUTOMOBIL is known as the small IAA due to its significance for the automotive market in Germany. The event opens its doors to the general public every year towards the end of February at Messe Freiburg in Freiburg, Germany. It’s been an active purchasing platform since its debut in 1986 and maintains its position as the go-to event for car dealerships and major manufacturers to connect with end customers. Whatever vehicle exists under the sun, it finds its way to the sales fair. The product assortment extends to sports cars, alternative drives, refined luxury cars, off-road vehicles, motorsport, SUVs and vintage cars. It’s also worth noting that innovation plays a huge part of AUTOMOBIL. Organisers are committed to bringing to light the newest advancements in emission-free mobility. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

The main audience for AUTOMOBIL is end consumers. To that end, the trade fair has created a warm, friendly environment for families with children. After all, many people are looking to invest in family cars. That’s why there’s childcare available on site while parents can browse the latest offerings from Mercedes Benz, Skoda, Fiat, BMW, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Opel, Renault, Citroen, Honda, Hyundai and KIA. Visitors with firm interest in high performance and tech achievements can take a look at the AUTOMOBIL Awards for top contenders across four categories. It’s not a car fair without the ability to hop right in any car and see how it performs. There’s a test drive area on the ground for live demos. In addition, visitors can take part in safety training and sign up for a test driving class at the driving school.
