For the first time we feature the world largest exhibition for commercial vehicles, the IAA Commercial Vehicles, in our seventh issue of Asian Buses. It is the 66th IAA in Hannover, Germany, as the leading international trade fair for mobility, transportation and logistics. The origins of the IAA can be traced back for more than 100 years. In 1897, eight motor vehicles were exhibited to the public at the Bristol Hotel in Berlin. From these humble beginnings, a regular exhibition was established that, due to its high visitor turnout, had to be separated into an alternating exhibition of passenger cars and commercial vehicles in 1991. In odd-numbered years the IAA Cars is held in Frankfurt; even-numbered years see the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hannover.
