IFA International Trade Visitors
Trade visitors to this year’s IFA will again have an opportunity to take part in the themed tours. These will take them straight to the highlights of the various thematic areas and provide an opportunity for discussions about the latest trends with specialist from the companies on display. These tours will enable trade visitors to take a first look at the latest developments and, with time at a premium, to meet with representatives of companies in each of the specialist areas. This is also an ideal way for dealers to make contact with companies. In each case two or three innovative firms will be featured, whose experts will be on hand to present their latest products and answer questions.
