Week-end Edition - Day 2 & Day 3 - IFA

international O f f i c i a l D a i l y N e w s S o u r c e f o r I n t e r n a t i o n a l V i s i t o r s a t I F A Hall 23/102 Hall 3.2 / 134 Hall 3.1 / 103 DAY 2 week-end edition Saturday 3 rd & Sunday 4 th September 2011 Hall 25/162 Get in Touch! The world gets smarter – at IFA 2011 Smart here, smart there… everywhere one looks at IFA this year, the same message comes home: IFA 2011 is the “smart” place to be! IFA’s official hook this year of “Get in Touch” thus makes even more sense, as Consumer Electronics and Home Appliance products become increasingly intelligent and talk to each other. The aim of IFA in educating trade professionals and the buying public about these new unique selling points thus takes on new importance and meaning. The two pre-show press days posted “standingroom-only”, as media flocked to get new insight into the direction being taken by the industry and 2011 will be the best IFA in history its roadmap for the future. And as the show officially got under way yesterday, thought leadership was the order of the day with two spectacular keynotes – by Masaaki Osumi, CEOs of Toshiba Digital Products and Services Company – and Keith McLoughlin, CEO of Electrolux. The world’s premier event of its kind certainly is living up to the prediction of Messe Berlin COO Dr Christian Göke that it would be the “best IFA in History”.
