A new vision for a sustainable future
Hyundai Motor hosted a booth at IAA Mobility 2021 in Munich from 6-12 September. At IAA Mobility 2021, we shared the next phase of our vision for mobility and the future of our company. We will extend our zero-emission commitment to all sectors of mobility, including plans to achieve carbon neutrality.

Our significant investments in the future of mobility, including battery electric vehicles, fuel cell electric vehicles, autonomous driving, and sustainability are already becoming reality.

General entrance to the Hyundai booth
During Hyundai’s 2021 IAA Mobility press conference, only journalists invited by Hyundai are allowed to be present on the Hyundai stand. During normal trade fair operations, all attendees have access to the booth, as long as they adhere to applicable Covid-19 restrictions.
Number of people allowed on the Hyundai booth
During normal IAA trade fair operations the number of visitors to the Hyundai booth will be restricted to meet official hygiene measures and spacing rules, this means an immediate access at peak times cannot be guaranteed.
Limits to media representatives on Hyundai booth
Due to hygiene regulations, there are limitations to the number of attendees allowed to attend the Hyundai booth. Therefore, only invited journalists are permitted to visit the stand for the Hyundai press conference. Other journalists are to attend the IAA Mobility Stage in Hall A3 for a livestream. Invitees to the Hyundai booth should arrive ten minutes in advance in order to ensure their attendance. Media not having a direct appointment might have to wait to enter the booth.
Hyundai will adhere to Covid-19 distance and hygiene regulations throughout IAA Mobility 2021. Therefore, it should be noted that some visitors to the Hyundai booth may experience waiting times during normal trade fair operations if a large number of attendees gather to enter the stand.
