Frank Bohle of Ralf Bohle GmbH sees the IAA Mobility and their new concept as “a big chance for the bicycle industry. In times of e-bikes and e-cargo-bikes becoming more and more important in the market, we should not stay in our little bicycle bubble, but are well-advised to go the next step and open up to a new and bigger audience.”
From Tuesday, 7 September, to Sunday, 12 September 2021, the IAA Mobility will take place for the first time. During those six days, e-bikes and bicycles can be found in the ‘Open Space’ exhibition areas in the city centre. Brands can be found in the Hofgarten (between Odeonsplatz and Englischer Garten) and on Marstallplatz. This ‘Open Space’ is accessible free of charge and without a ticket.
There are no designated test areas on the exhibition grounds themselves, but rather under real conditions in the urban infrastructure, explicitly on the cycle paths in the immediate vicinity, such as on Ludwigs-/Leopoldstraße, and the cycle paths of the nearby Englischer Garten. As part of the IAA, ‘Kids World’offers a programme specifically for children and families.
