A lot of time has passed since the first IFA (IFA Berlin – Consumer Electronics Fair) in 1924 in Berlin. Previously, it was all about the presentation of the latest tube TVs and headphones, today IFA is the world’s leading consumer electronics and home appliance exhibition. Today, more than 1.800 exhibitors from more than 100 countries meet at the Berlin ExpoCenter City, presenting more than 240.000 visitors with a unique mix of the latest products and innovations.
From 06.-11. September 2019 you can look around daily from 10-18 clock in the Berlin ExpoCenter City in peace and from 08.-11. September 2019, the B2B trade center IFA Global Markets will take place in STATION Berlin. The fair for trade visitors, which takes place parallel to the IFA, is a central trading place for buyers, traders and trade visitors. So use both locations, both of which are included in the ticket for the IFA.
The IFA is divided into 8 segments that provide you with the entire diversity of brands, products and innovation. You can find seven segments at the Berlin Exhibition Center (IFA Next, IFA Home & Entertainment Electronics, IFA Audio Entertainment, IFA Home Appliances, IFA My Media, IFA Public Media and IFA Communication). You can visit the eighth segment, IFA Global Markets, in STATION Berlin, but only as a trade visitor. There will be a shuttle service that will let you easily switch between both locations.
Each segment is assigned a different colour on the map, so that you can easily orient yourself on the site map of the exhibition halls.
If you are a trade visitor, then look here. Here you will find all the important information and benefits of the ticket, such as the “Fast Lane” as a separate entrance area, which will take you directly to the IFA without having to queue. If you would like to see the IFA as a private visitor, then you can look around here for the right ticket for you.
But whether private or trade visitors, everyone needs a little variety. And that’s what you’ll find, for example, at the summer garden shows. In the middle of the exhibition halls you can visit performances of famous musicians after your IFA visit.
- On the 6th of September, the IFA Summer Garden is all about Rap music. At the FRITZ FESTIVAL in the IFA Summer Garden – SOMETHING WITH RAP you can attend concerts by rappers. From 18:00-22:00 o’clock RIN, MERO, JUJU and Yung Hurn stand on stage for you and force you to celebrate.
- On the 7th of September, from 16:00-22:00 o’clock, the contrast program will take place when the rbb 88.8 POP HERO FESTIVAL takes place at the IFA Summer Garden. You dive into the world of the 80s and 90s and you can experience pop-stars from the 80s live on stage. Who will be there? Steve Norman, Paul Young, Limahl, Wet Wet Wet and many more.
- On the 8th of September, there will be the finest French chanson by ZAZ. Be enchanted by the charming French Woman and enjoy her concert at 07:00 pm in the IFA Summer Garden.
And if you like it hearty and rustic, then just have a look at the IFA Oktoberfest directly below the Radio Tower. There is a large Bavarian marquee, where you can let it go to your heart’s content with traditional dishes such as sausages, pork knuckles and a Mass beer.
Of course, I do not want to keep the information by myself that you, as a visitor to the IFA, will receive special rates for your journey with Deutsche Bahn and the Lufthansa Group. Book your arrival and departure from €54.90 at the Deutsche Bahn or look here for cheap flights in cooperation with the IFA.
Either way, you can get from the train station, the airport or by car to the fair. And of course you can just as easily come from the fair to your room in one of our LINDEMANN HOTELS®. After an exciting day at the IFA, you can either really relax in your room, enjoy a nightcap at the bar in the lobby or take advantage of the central location of our four hotels and make the night in Berlin, properly celebrate and experience the Berlin lifestyle. Just ask our team from the Front Office, what special night out they have for you.
