IFA 2018 - Information for trade visitors

"We are very glad to have been part of IFA again this year. It gives us an opportunity to present our capabilities in terms of skills, sound and design to a wide audience. We value the fact that we can let visitors experience all our products. We were very satisfied with the number of visitors overall and were able to attract lots of international visitors to Bang & Olufsen.“

Martin Kofler, Head of Sales DACH, Bang & Olufsen

“In 2018 we can look back on a successful IFA again. Visitor numbers were on a par with last year’s figures and we are very satisfied with the way the fair went. Trading partners, consumers and the media showed great interest in our range of products which fully satisfy the current needs of the modern home.“

Harald Friedrich, Managing Director, Robert Bosch Hausgeräte GmbH

“This year, interest in Telekom products and solutions rose by ten percentage points (57 per cent) compared to last year. The same increase was noted in visitors who tested devices on the Telekom stand for themselves. We can be proud of the positive results we achieved here at IFA. With our modern, interactive and playful brand identity, we were able to inspire visitors with a passion for our magenta-colored products.“

Antje Hundhausen, Vice President Brand Experience, Deutsche Telekom

“This was the fifth time in a row that Samsung, the largest exhibitor at IFA, was able to showcase its latest products on a 6,000 square-meter display area at the CityCube Berlin. The huge number of visitors showed that, more than ever before, people are open to new technology that makes everyday life easier and also saves time and energy. As a driving force of the consumer and home electronics industry, Samsung is making giant strides forward in IoT and AI, two trends at IFA, with its intelligent user experience which puts people first, and which is fun and also safe. The fascination with our innovations was reflected in our sales at IFA. In particular home appliances and TVs achieved growth rates that fill us with optimism for our end-of-year business, which is so important in this industry.“

Martin Börner, Deputy President, Samsung Electronics GmbH

“In 2018, as at previous IFA events, the mood at Miele was excellent. The number of trade visitors and orders exceeded the previous year’s figures again. Product innovations met with very positive reactions from retailers and consumers. There was keen interest in connectivity, and here especially in voice-controlled devices.”

Dr. Reinhard Zinkann, Managing Partner, Miele
