The Auto Mobil International (AMI Leipzig), also known as Leipzig Auto Show, is motor show organized by the Leipziger Messe since 1991, in Leipzig, Germany. Spring 1991 saw the first car show in eastern Germany following the country’s reunification the previous year. Featuring 273 exhibitors, it drew 113,402 visitors. Auto Mobil International has evolved into a top annual European exhibition attracting more than 400 exhibitors from 20 countries and around 270,000 visitors from 50 nations.[1] In addition to the IAA in Frankfurt, which takes place every two years, it is the second largest German car show. AMI introduced many innovations in the automotive sector, including over 100 world, European and Germany premieres. Since 2010 the show held every two years only.

Parallel to the AMI is AMITEC instead, a trade fair for vehicle components, workshop and service.


This year, the AMI (Auto Mobil International) in Leipzig is Germany's only international motor show. It owes this status to the agreed rotation due to which it takes place in turn with the IAA in Frankfurt every second year. Accordingly, the contingent of exhibitors is high and brands such as Rolls Royce or Tesla even made their debut at the AMI. Overall, more than 80 premieres are waiting for the visitors, including 20 world and European premieres. 450 companies and brands from 23 countries join in at the exhibition centre Leipzig.
