IFA 2007 – BERLIN. The consumer electronics fair IFA, which opens this Friday in Berlin, claims record figures, with 104,000 square metres and record participation by 1,212 exhibitors from 32 countries. According to the organisers, these figures confirm the ongoing success of the IFA on the second occasion since it became an annual event.
Having been the main consumer electronics event for Europe, the fair has now set its ambition world-wide. Dr. Christian Goke, CEO Messe Berlin, said in a prepared statement: “The high overall level of international participation is one of the hallmarks of the IFA. This year the IFA records one of the largest international participations of recent years by exhibitors and in particular by trade visitors.”
