IFA 2007: IFA show is over

(BC) Still a bit tired, 06.09.2007 – Attendance of 235,000 from home and abroad – 1,212 exhibitors from 32 countries – 733 international companies – IFA gives additional boost to industry. That are the short headlines after the big consumer show in Berlin is over. I hope you had a chance to visit this year’s IFA consumer-electronics trade show in Berlin – a kinda Flat Panels galore with about 5,000 displays filling 26 pavilions at the six-day event. For most visitors trying out all those new goodies in this electronic wonderland was for sure a blast, for thousands of hostesses, journalists, PR-folks and organisers it was a lot of work. All the glamour and the glittering televisions of this fascinating trade show are gone and though i am a bit tired of the last days, i am satisfied of a job well done.
