IFA Berlin

06. - 10. September 2024 | World's largest exhibition for entertainment electronics and home appliances

The IFA, formally known as the "Internationale Funkausstellung" or International Radio Exhibition, stands as the world's preeminent trade show for consumer electronics and household appliances. Since its inception in 1924, Berlin, the capital city, has been its enduring venue. The event unfolds under the auspices of Messe Berlin GmbH. Over the years, IFA has evolved into a global nexus for consumer and home electronics, annually offering, in September, a panoramic view of the most recent innovations and products.

Nestled in the heart of Europe, this event magnetizes esteemed retailers, buyers, industry connoisseurs, and media representatives from more than 130 countries. The primary allure is the unveiling of the latest in entertainment electronics, communication technology, and household appliances. IFA's ties run deep not just with Berlin but also with Europe's illustrious technological saga. It was here that pivotal inventions like the vacuum tube radio receiver, the first car radio in Europe, and the color television were introduced to the world. An emblematic moment in IFA's chronicle was when Albert Einstein, in 1930, graced the occasion with an opening speech. Between 1914 and 1932, Einstein had made Berlin his home, taking on the mantle of the director at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics. Hence, inviting such an iconic figure to launch a significant Berlin event seemed almost preordained. The tapestry of exhibitors at IFA is diverse, spanning sectors like telecommunications, computing, and household appliance technology. The event predominantly draws professionals from these domains, in addition to journalists, buyers, and tech aficionados. To cap it off, it's pertinent to highlight that the IFA is nestled within the state-of-the-art precincts of Messe Berlin. With its top-notch infrastructure and a stone's throw away from the city's principal transportation junctures, it seamlessly marries business with leisure amidst one of Europe's most vibrant cities.

The IFA will take place on 5 days from Friday, 06. September to Tuesday, 10. September 2024 in Berlin.
