IFA Berlin is the leading Consumer Electronics Exhibition in the World. It is held in September and it showcases the most important technological innovations to the general public. There are almost 2000 exhibitors in the 160 000 square meter show floor that attract around 250 000 visitors. It is the place to be for all the advanced technology companies, startups and global giants.

The IFA Organization hosts a number of events along the year preceding the actual exhibition, including the Global Press Conference (IFA GPC). This year the event was hosted in sunny southern Spain, in a town called Punta Umbria. There were more than 300 journalists and media members attending from altogether 55 countries. The list of public speakers included executives from IFA, industry experts, journalists and representatives from companies like Philips, Hisense, Haier, Panasonic and Safera.
