But it’s also the place where the “big boys” come to talk – equal to equal – with the major players of the manufacturing world. Last year, Steve Ager, group commercial director, Dixons Retail, explained the importance of such high level exchanges. This year, it’s Klaus Peter Voigt – chief procurement officer of Media-Saturn- Holding GmbH – Europe’s biggest consumer electronics retail group “Guidance and feedback from key retail figures are vital" – turning-over 21 billion Euros annually – who gives his vision of IFA, and explains how he and his teams leverage this extraordinary platform for dialogue, communication and business. Guidance and feedback from key retail figures such as Mr Voigt are a vital element in planning future rollouts by the major vendors.
