History of the IFA

The story of the IFA began on 4 December 1924 with the first "Grosse Deutsche Funkausstellung". This event was attended by 242 exhibitors and 180,000 visitors and occupied an area of 7,000 square metres. The "Grosse Deutsche Funkausstellung" took place annually after that, with radio playing a major part, augmented by demonstrations of television from 1928 onwards.

Berlin remained the venue for this trade fair until the outbreak of the Second World War. After the war it was not confined to any one venue for a number of years. The Funkausstellung took place in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt/Main and in Stuttgart, before the Funkausstellung, now an international event, finally returned to Berlin in 1971.

The history books recall the IFA 95 as being the first real multimedia trade fair. In the years afterwards, the exhibitions to follow emphatically followed in its footsteps and demonstrated that the leading CE trade fair had now become a comprehensive display of the consumer electronics industry, but also of telecommunications and parts of the IT industry.
