IFA organizers Messe Berlin and gfu Consumer & Home Electronics GmbH announced that the tech convention will be returning to an in-person event from September 2 – 6, 2022 in Berlin.
This comes following the news in May 2021 of the cancelation of the convention due to ‘global health uncertainties’ brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the Messe venue was converted into a vaccination center and an emergency hospital facility.
“Now, though, it’s finally time to ‘get real’ and once again organize a full-size trade show at the grounds of Messe Berlin and in a city that is not only the capital of Europe’s largest consumer market but evolved as a European media hub as well. Many leading global brands have already committed their participation. As of now, we register high demand for the IFA Fitness & Digital Health area and the Home Appliances section.”
Jens Heithecker, IFA Executive Director and Messe Berlin Group Executive Vice President
