IFA – the platform for major players to explain reorganisation and new strategies With a number of major manufacturers restructuring and reorganising, IFA has been the perfect platform for these companies to explain their new organisations and the new values they bring to the market during these turbulent times. A perfect case at hand is LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company, whose President and CEO, Havis Kwon (pictured left), has been present at the show to support his teams and explain his strategy in fine detail (see also interview page 7). The 2011 edition of IFA has proven yet again to be the world forum for thought leadership in the Consumer Electronics and Home Appliance industries. As the show where global leaders from all major manufacturers gather, key buying groups are able “IFA has proven yet again to be the world forum for thought leadership” to plot their purchasing roadmaps based on clear and solid information. An example is the DisplaySearch Business Conference at IFA, getting under way today, which gives attendees an in-depth insight into Tablets, TVs and the Home Video Ecosystem. The event will be crucial for trade visitors wanting to understand the Tablet and TV supply chain, market dynamics and technologies being shown at this year’s IFA exhibition.
