Despite the mood of uncertainty in the markets around the world exhibitors and retailers will be returning home from IFA with a sense of optimism. Manufacturers’ expectations were greatly exceeded at IFA, in particular in the TV, telecoms and home appliances sectors.´
Orders were placed totalling almost four billion euros, making IFA the most relevant event for industry and retailers in the run-up to Christmas, the most important trading period for stockists. This applies equally to both the consumer electronics and home appliances industries.
