In particular this year it is critical for companies such as Samsung, to demonstrate a compelling vision for the future. Economic conditions notwithstanding, our industry certainly is experiencing many positives for instance: strong growth in flat panel TV´s, monitors, Blu-ray and other connected digital products. I am honored to outline Samsung’s vision of the consumer electronics industry and highlight many of the exciting and innovative technology experiences we will be offering to the market. Dr. Reinhard Zinkann Managing Director and Co-Proprietor at Miele & Cie. KG Ferdinand Kayser President & CEO of SES ASTRA Abstract of Speech Consumers continue to demand more emotional and selfexpressive experiences from their technology products. Samsung calls this phenomena “Digital Humanism”. Future technology products must now reflect individual human values, lifestyles and cultural experiences. Samsung’s ongoing efforts to realize the promise of “Digital Humanism” is the fundamental motivation behind the company’s future product plans. Samsung will introduce its 2nd half 2009 products at IFA which will highlight, through an “e-Story”, the core values of our upcoming product portfolio: Essence, Engagement, Expression, Experience, Eco. 6 th September 2009 @ 15:00 - 15:45 Location: Hall 7.1.a, IFA International Keynote Area Sustainable thinking and action: Challenges facing the industry in taking targeted action to support the retail trade and to introduce calm in times of crisis 7 th September 2009 @ 9:45 – 10:30 a.m. Location: Hall 7.1a, IFA International Keynote Area SES ASTRA, the right partner for business - shaping new markets, driving innovation, developing HDTV.
