IFA: A Story of Growth

The story of the IFA began on 4 December 1924 with the first "Grosse Deutsche Funkausstellung", focusing on the radio as a new medium. The event was attended by 242 exhibitors and 180,000 visitors and occupied an area of 7,000 square metres. More than 90 years later, the IFA has been joined by telecommunications and IT experts and has since become a true multimedia trade fair. Today, the IFA boasts 150,000 sqare metres of exhibition space and 240,000 visitors each year.
