The history of the IFA

The IFA show has been held since 1924. Originally mainly dedicated to radio innovations, hence its name (Funkausstellung means 'radio show' in German), it gradually diversified when it started exhibiting televisions in 1928. After the Second World War and a 10-year break, it was held successively in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Stuttgart before returning in Berlin in 1971.
It gradually opened up to other broadcasting devices, then electronics in the broad sense. The event is now international and features everything from household appliances to the Internet of Things and multimedia accessories, attracting crowds at the start of every show eager for entertainment and the latest trends.

Practical aspects of the IFA

The show is held in Berlin, Germany, more specifically at Messe Berlin, the city's exhibition grounds. Each show is usually held at the start of September and features the season's new releases. The IFA lasts six days, plus a further two for journalists, who can attend press conferences before the show opens to the international public. The aim of these conferences is to unveil the latest innovations to the press before they go on sale.
