VDA - German Association of the Automotive Industry
The VDA nationally and internationally promotes the interests of the entire German automotive industry in all fields of the motor transport sector, for example in economic, transport and environmental policy, technical legislation, standardisation and quality assurance.
In addition, the VDA organises, under its own auspices, the IAA International Motor Show, which is held every year. The IAA Passenger Cars is held in odd-numbered years, and in even-numbered years it is the turn of the IAA Commercial Vehicles.
The next events are IAA Commercial Vehicles, held from 20 - 27 September 2012 in Hanover (Press days 18-19 September) and IAA Passenger Cars in Frankfurt/Main, 12- 22 September 2013 (Press days: 10-11 September 2013). Please find more information on the website: www.iaa.de.
The members of the association are companies that operate a plant in the Federal Republic of Germany for the industrial production of motor vehicles and their engines, trailers, special bodies and containers and vehicle parts and accessories.
Since 1995 the motor vehicle parts industry has grown by three times as much as German industry as a whole. In recent years the number of suppliers in the VDA has increased by 40 per cent; out of more than 600 member companies in the VDA, around 500 are supply companies.
