Haier @Milan design week

Haier has chosen the Milano Design Week – and in particular the spaces of Superstudio Più – to present its idea of smart kitchen. Together with the best of the brand’s offer in the field of refrigeration, wine cellars and washing, Haier presented the Series 4 and Series 6, the complete ranges of kitchen appliances featuring Artificial Intelligence. “Series 4 and Series 6 – the company explains – mean premiumness and technology that come together in a complete range of ovens, microwaves, hobs, hoods, refrigerators and dishwashers that take advantage of connectivity, the hOn app and AI to offer tailor made solutions and to integrate perfectly into modern kitchens, thanks also to the elegant and minimal design”. The attention to design can count on the design team of the Milan Experience Design Center. Among the innovations proposed by Haier for the kitchen of the future there is the Chef@Home oven, which thanks to a presence sensor turns on automatically giving the user access to the 19” full touch control screen and, through it, to the “Cook with me” technologies. In particular, the PreciTaste technology is able to recognize the types of food in the oven, automatically set the cooking parameters and send a notification when the food is ready. The hi-tech solutions are also visible in the induction products: thanks to the PreciProbe bluetooth temperature probe – which the Chef@Home oven is also equipped with – the hob controls the food temperature, automatically choosing the correct power and notifying the user when the food is ready. Furthermore, exclusive features of the Series 4 and Series 6 are the Multizone technology (which thanks to an advanced temperature detection system and an optimized power management is able to detect and manage the presence of pots of different sizes in the same area, guaranteeing the maximum flexibility) and the VaryCook technology, which allows user to move pots and pans without touching the controls thanks to the three preset power levels (high, medium and low), giving the possibility to cook food at different power in the different cooking phases. Gas hobs complete the range: Haier offers models with 5 kW burners and PreciFlame technology, which allows to adjust the flame intensity to nine power levels

CE China exhibition, IFA event is canceled

CE China 2021, which is planned for September 16-18 in Guangzhou, will not take place. International travel to China continues to be severely hindered by travel restrictions due to the corona pandemic. With the recent emergence of Covid cases in Asia, both international and Chinese companies remain uncertain about their participation in international trade shows.

Ifa will come back as a live event in 2022

Ifa 2021 will not take place in September as a physical live event as originally planned. The decision was made after detailed conversations with public health experts and multiple stakeholders. The organization explained that several key global health metrics did not move as fast in the right direction as had been hoped for – from the rapid emergence of new Covid-19 variants, for example in South Asia, to continued uncertainties about the speed of the rollout of vaccination programmes around the world. This in turn is adding uncertainty for the companies that were committed or interested in coming to Berlin, as well as media and visitors. Moreover, Messe Berlin has converted parts of its exhibition area into a vaccination centre and an emergency hospital facility; both are now likely to be required for longer than originally anticipated.

We did not take this decision lightly – said Martin Ecknig, the ceo of Messe Berlin -. Ifa Berlin is arguably the most important event of the year for brands and retailers alike. IFA Berlin connects our industry with trade visitors, media and real consumers like no other event. However, the health and safety of everybody has to be absolutely paramount. The efforts to contain this pandemic – from the roll-out of vaccination programs to the resumption of international travel – did not happen at the pace we had hoped for. Given these developments, this difficult and disappointing decision was inevitable.
