The Internationalle Funkaustellung is Europe’s biggest tech show, its the place where major brands from Korea, China, Japan, the United States of America, the Netherlands, and many other countries showcase their top range consumer electronics to the European markets. As with all things, the Wuhan virus forced the convention to change several things, and while some manufacturers and companies chose to pull out from this prestigious consumer electronics show, many others will present a select audience of four thousand people and 800 journalists the best that tech has to offer in everything from audio, the latest updates in batteries, as well as avant-garde components from manufacturers that wish other big brands to incorporate into their gadgets and technologies. The Internet of Things also makes a big presence in this upcoming Friday’s techie party.
A techie is anyone who has a great interest in technology, and consumer electronic gadgets, and that’s what IFA Berlin 2020 is all about. And all major techies will focus their eyes on this Friday’s meeting at Messe Berlin, where IFA Press Conference will gather all major companies wishing to take at a slice at the consumer electronics market-facing 2020.
Major Players at IFA Berlin 2020
Qualcomm CEO will be at the event, probably to inform the public on how his company will enter this decade as 5G becomes a giant demand. Chinese 5G manufacturer giant Huawei will also be present as it saves face from global shunning amidst its unethical practices and espionage charges. Traditional Asian consumer electronics companies like South Korea’s Samsung, Japan’s Sony, will showcase all of their devices.
The capital city of Germany hosting IFA 2020 will also showcase another major European —and potentially domestic power-player— in the 5G technologies industries as Finnish network manufacturer Nokia will present their latest developments in the segment as they face a global market hungry for bigger bandwidth and connection speeds.
If 5G is a major topic in IFA Berlin 2020, so is the up-and-coming technologies of the Internet of Things —IoT,— as more and more devices have sensors attached to serve multiple functions to enhance our day to day lives. Gadgets like smartwatches, weight scales, smart pill bottles, blood glucose meters, light sensors, health fitness trackers, and kitchen appliances will incorporate this technology in the next generation of devices, the reason for it is the demand for less contact with surfaces in a post-coronavirus-wracked world.
Coronavirus Almost Canceled IFA 2020
Earlier this year, German authorities issued a mandate by which certain mass gatherings could be held in the regular fashion because they would create optimal conditions for the transmission of the Wuhan virus, the IFA organizers decided to enter with talks with the authorities and the venue will now take place from September 4 to 9, 2020. Messe Berlin will live stream some parts of this event at 11.25 CEST
