IFA will be the first ‘Tech Trade Show’ of 2020 that will Held in September
After many cancelled tech trade shows, IFA 2020 set to be held in Berlin, Germany. Despite the ongoing pandemic, this event will take place in September. Though, this time it will look and organize differently than previously held shows due to COVID-19 locked down scenarios.
This time various steps have been taken to make IFA 2020 operational, to meet the SOPs set by the government. No such public appearance will be allowed more than 1000 people a day, also the number of invitations will be minimized. It will be easier for the organizers to manage crucial social distancing.
IFA Executive Director Jens Heithecker presented the plan for how to hold a safe IFA 2020 during an online press conference, which gave a positive summary of the re-imagined event. Heithecker said Berlin is one of Europe’s least affected cities by coronavirus and local authorities considered it safe for events with up to 5,000 attendees to take place.
The event will be held temporarily from September 3 to September 5, 2020, and the first confirmed guest speaker will be Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon. The IFA Display includes all consumer electronics products, from smartphones and kitchen appliances, TVs and audio equipment to smart homes and Variables.
IFA 2020 will also offer a wide range of digital events for those who cannot (or would not prefer) to attend in person, which will be far less limited in terms of attendance.
In a time when nearly any big in-person gathering has been forced to either fully abandon or dramatically reconsider how to deliver knowledge to consumers and companies, all eyes will be on IFA this fall as the first effort to host a tech based event in 2020.
