IFA is the leading trade show worldwide for consumer and home electronics. In 2016 it will take place from 2nd to 7th September at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds (Expo Center City). IFA presents the latest products and innovations in the heart of Europe‘s most important regional market. Only IFA offers such a comprehensive overview of the international market and attracts the attention of trade visitors each year from more than 100 countries. IFA is the main meeting place for key retailers, buyers, and experts from the industry and the media.

IFA offers you a clear and simple structure. The seven segments feature the entire range of brands, products and innovations in all their diversity. IFA Special Areas offer exhibition areas for extraordinary current products and solutions. Visitors can see the whole range of products and solutions related to one theme in a single hall or in several adjacent halls.
