Europe's largest sourcing market is here

IFA Global Markets – A unique hub for technical consumer goods, digital products, and new technologies from CE & HA

What began last year will become a real highlight of 2017: IFA Global Markets at STATION-Berlin at Gleisdreieck is IFA's central international trading platform for suppliers, component manufacturers, OEMs, and ODMs.

Germany is Europe's largest market for digital and electronic products – and Berlin is its new trading center. IFA Global Markets offers one unique, central destination in Europe for developers, distributors and buyers for 2017.

Parallel with IFA but somewhat shorter in duration, from 3 – 6 September 2017, all Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), Original Design Manufacturers (ODM), suppliers, and manufacturers of electrical components will exhibit here – on 20,000 exceptional square meters of exhibition space in the center of Berlin.

At STATION-Berlin at Gleisdreieck, only about 30 minutes from the exhibition grounds, companies will find technical inspiration and products for their developments. From electronic consumer goods and digital solutions to components and products, IFA Global Markets has it all – including international industry contacts.

IFA Global Markets takes place exclusively for IFA trade visitors. Your IFA trade visitor ticket grants you free entry. A free shuttle service will provide a regular connection between the exhibition grounds and STATION-Berlin. Save the date: 3 – 6 September 2017!

Exhibitors interested in IFA and IFA Global Markets should contact the IFA team quickly. Experience shows that exhibition space fills up fast.
