Replenishing sustenance in the Driver's Inn
Reinforcement for that extra mile: Chilled drinks are served at the Driver’s Inn – accompanied by hot music. The best combination for a genuine power break.
The many routes at an IAA utility vehicle trade fair can be really long. And when a power loss occurs and even the strongest of trade fair cowboys needs sustenance to overcome that very last extra mile, then suddenly it appears before the drivers’ eyes. Like a good old friend, a campfire in the night to warm the cockles of your heart: the Mercedes-Benz Driver’s Inn. This year the trade fair Saloon is open again in Hall 14/15. No longer is it regarded as an insiders’ tip – instead, it has become one of the institutions of the utility vehicle trade fair.
Relaxing from the trade-fair hubbub.
The Driver’s Inn crew always has fresh pretzels on offer to provide “official” sustenance. Visitors can order free refreshments at two counters and talk shop with friends and colleagues about the trade fair attractions. Not too rarely does the short break at the Driver’s Inn turn into a proper Western party whenever a highly agile trio comes on stage.
Songs with wicked road-holding properties.
With their Western repertoire in their regular shows, “Voice of Germany” talents Tesirée Priti and Ramona Nerra, together with Shave Randle and DJane Alina, really heat up the atmosphere and get visitors moving on the dance floor again at the “Driver’s Inn”. Using voting slips, listeners can decide for themselves, which songs they want to hear the trio play on the show stage, ranging from Country & Western all the way through to Pop or Hiphop. And the tried-and-tested trio always delivers compelling evidence of good but wicked road handling. Whenever people in the audience join in, dancing and clapping their hands, then the power break certainly was a genuine win-win story; next in line after refreshments, is the guided tour through Hall 14/15, in which Mercedes-Benz presents its innovations surrounding the lead concept RoadEfficiency.
