Connecting Car Competence: the IZB 2020 Brings the Mobility of the Future to Wolfsburg

Intelligent, digitised and self-driving: networked vehicles mark the start of a brand-new era in the automotive industry. The speed and strength of these times of change are like nothing that our industry has ever seen before. From 6th to 8th October, the International Suppliers Fair (IZB) 2020 will shine the spotlight on the new technologies and business models that are revolutionising the world of mobility. In order to achieve this, the trade fair is bringing together the pioneers behind the digital transformation in the Allerpark in the German city of Wolfsburg. At the IZB, these experts will share their knowledge and experiences both with each other and with OEM representatives and work together to develop new ideas. Welcome to the IZB 2020 – welcome to Connecting Car Competence!

This is the fitting motto of the IZB 2020, one of the world’s most important trade fairs for automotive supplier companies. The event, which is organised by Wolfsburg AG and takes place every two years, brings together decision-makers and experts at the company headquarters of Volkswagen AG in Wolfsburg. In 2020, the huge change of system taking place in the automotive industry will take centre stage at this showcase event for achievements and innovation. What developments are already feasible when it comes to future mobility – and what will be conceivable in the near future?

“An outstanding platform for communication and business”

“The IZB 2020 explores key topics in the industry that significantly characterise the market in its restructured form – from e-mobility, mobile services and sustainability right through to Production 4.0.”, states Dr. Frank Fabian, Spokesman of the Board of Wolfsburg AG. “When it comes to taking a look at the future and establishing networks between the actors involved, the IZB is therefore an outstanding platform for communication and business.”

On the three days of the trade fair, interesting discussions and presentations such as the Tech Talks, live demos and prototype presentations provide the perfect setting for a profitable exchange of ideas and experiences. In line with the event’s maxim of Connecting Car Competence, supplier companies showcase their products and expertise, thus giving the actors and key communicators in the automotive industry a major opportunity to network with and benefit from each other. In the exhibition halls, international exhibitors from innovative start-ups through to established large companies come into contact with several tens of thousands of trade visitors and digital experts. All of these exhibitors and visitors share the same interests, namely connectivity applications, mobile services and smart services and how they can be secured and incorporated into the IT infrastructure. As Dr. Frank Fabian emphasises, Wolfsburg is the ideal stage for exploring these interests: “We present the future of mobility in Wolfsburg, the city of the future”.
