The IZB supplier fair, held every other year in Wolfsburg, Germany, will this year focus on the digital trends that are key to the transformation of the auto industry.

The theme of the 2016 exhibition is: "Mobility goes digital."

The event, which takes place in the northern German city where the Volkswagen Group is headquartered, brings together executives from VW and other carmakers with a broad range of automotive supplier companies.

In 2016, companies will present various innovations in driver assistance systems and smartphone and tablet integration. Consumer electronics companies such as Samsung, Sony, Sharp and Asus will have displays in Wolfsburg.

The IZB will also feature a conference. This "International Automotive Congress," will take place on October 17 and will look at the business opportunities provided by new mobility concepts.
