Latest innovations in consumer electronics at IFA Berlin
The international trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances IFA 2019 is held from 6 to 11 September at the Messe Berlin Exhibition Grounds. The annual exhibition presents the latest products and innovations in the field of electronics and digital technology. The platform provides a comprehensive overview of the international market and each year attracts the attention of international trade visitors from more than 100 countries. As expected by the organizers, the forum once again welcomes numerous retailers, buyers and experts from the industry and the media.
Together with the trade fair event, Europe’s largest B2B sourcing platform IFA Global Markets takes place from 8 to 11 September at STATION-Berlin.
“Last year, IFA set a new standard by completely selling out 161 200 square meters of show floor space to 1814 exhibitors, confirming IFA’s role as the leading showcase for the global technology industry. IFA 2019 not only hosts more innovation and product launches than any previous event, it also presents more digital lifestyle products in one place than any other show worldwide”, the organizers from Messe Berlin remind.
This year’s edition of IFA features the innovation platform IFA NEXT which brings together start-ups, research laboratories, universities, and established companies to introduce tomorrow’s ideas, products, and solutions in the field of consumer electronics and home appliances.
Among the other parallel events are The IFA Keynotes, IFA+ Summit, SHIFT Automotive and the IFA Hosted Conferences, which are held in Hall 26 of the exhibition center. “The main goal of the rich complementary program is to focus even more on innovation and providing visitors and the media with the latest trends and topics all together in one place”, organizers explain.
The IFA+ Summit has functioned as the IFA’s think tank since 2014. Each year, it brings in more than 550 international experts and thought leaders of digital society. The two-day event is part of the IFA NEXT innovation forum and takes place on 8 and 9 September 2019 in the IFA NEXT GRAND THEATER in Hall 26b.
The 9th IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics
From 8 to 11 September 2019 the 9th IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics – Berlin (“ICCE-Berlin”) also takes place. “The ICCE-Berlin is the European sister conference of the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society’s flagship conference “ICCE”. Now in its 9th edition, ICCE-Berlin is well established and fully integrated in the IFA”, the conference organizers announce.
This year the IEEE CE Society again joins forces with some other IEEE societies to broaden and strengthen the CE subjects and scope of the conference: the Electro-Magnetic Compatibility Society, the Life Sciences Technical Community, the Product Safety Engineering Society, the Reliability Society and the Society of Social Implications of Technology, Messe Berlin further disclosed.
The forum welcomes numerous researchers and engineers from industry, research centres and academia who exchange information and results from recent work on systems, circuits, technologies, processes and applications in consumer electronics. The conference also serves as a platform for participants to share their ideas, designs and experiences in such a proper environment as the IFA and advance future developments in consumer electronics.
