The Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung has always been about its home country. First held in Berlin in 1897, in modern times the IAA became almost exclusively associated with Frankfurt. Postponed by the pandemic, as well as the ongoing downturn in auto show attendance in the West, the 2021 event has re-branded itself IAA Mobility and switched venues to a scattering of locations around Munich.
