“Connected Car” as the focus of this year’s IAA in Frankfurt am Main29. September 2015
From 17 to 27 September 2015 the International Automobile Exhibition IAA again took place in the exhibition centre of Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
This year, the international audience included a total of 931,700 visitors from all over the world, the number of guests has increased by more than 50,000 compared to 2013. On the world’s most important trade fair for mobility nearly all automotive manufacturers participated. Apart from that, all major vehicle manufacturers and numerous automotive suppliers were represented.
The motto of this year’s IAA “Mobility Connects” has been widely taken up. Therefore, the focus of the whole event was put on networking, digitalization and electromobility, which continues to be a very important topic, to name just a few of the relevant topics.
The IAA is organized every two years by the VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry). More than 1,100 exhibitors from 39 different countries then come to Germany in order to present their newest innovations. Especially automated driving concepts were presented by car manufacturers. The aim of those concepts is primarily to enlarge the safety of road traffic and its participants.
“The networked car will be an integral part of a multimodal transport solution. Innovative apps and services will enable new usage concepts for the time people spend in their cars, it makes driving easier, safer and more efficient,” said Matthias Wissmann, President of the Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) at the IAA.
Unlike in previous years, in 2015 approximately 28 percent of all foreign exhibitors came from the People’s Republic of China. Especially for automotive suppliers, the Chinese market is becoming increasingly attractive. In order to enter the Chinese market, you need a CCC Certification for many products. It is a mandatory certification for the Chinese market. In particular, interior trim components from the automotive sector are affected. Many car manufacturers already know: Due to the regular publication of new regulations by the Chinese certification authorities it is increasingly important to think a step further early enough.
In 2015 the MPR China Certification GmbH already celebrated its 10th anniversary. Together with our subsidiaries in the US and China (Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou), we have successfully support clients from all over the world during their certification process. We ensure that a CCC Certification for China no longer represents a burden for entering the Chinese automotive market.
