After long speculation, the IFA will continue at the Berlin location. The traditional trade fair is said to have signed a ten-year contract with the rights holder gfu and the event company Clarion.
Sustainability, connectivity and smart home solutions were the major themes at this year’s IFA Berlin – the proportion of trade visitors is growing – strong demand for digital access to the IFA
After a three-year break, the IFA in Berlin has made a strong comeback as the top global event for the consumer and home electronics industry. Despite the pandemic restrictions still in place, which continue to affect parts of Asia, exhibitors occupied more than 80 percent of the exhibition space on the Messe Berlin site. The exhibitors took the opportunity to finally get in touch with dealers, media and end consumers again.
IFA 2022 was also very well attended overall, especially given the ongoing travel restrictions in Asia. Over 161,000 people came to the IFA in Berlin over the five days of the fair. In the pre-pandemic comparison, the proportion of trade visitors was higher. Many exhibitors reported an unusually high number of business transactions during the fair.
The IFA again generated a strong media response: more than 2,500 journalists came to Berlin, around half of them representing international media organizations. Media monitoring has shown that IFA 2022 was reported on by publications and broadcasters in over 100 countries worldwide.
Positive feedback from global brands and retailers
Despite global challenges such as ongoing supply chain disruptions and inflationary pressures, exhibitors at IFA 2022 saw a huge volume of orders.
dr Sara Warneke , Managing Director of gfu, explains: “After the break caused by the pandemic, the IFA has reported back impressively with the most important trends for products and solutions in the areas of consumer electronics and home appliances as well as related industries, especially in the field of sustainability. It was once again the proven meeting place for industry and trade, trade visitors and the media, and of course consumers.”
Martin Ecknig, CEO of Messe Berlin, says: “It’s fantastic that our halls were once again full. I’ve had very positive feedback from all the global brands and retailers I’ve spoken to, and I’m particularly pleased that we’ve had such a large number of insiders and trade visitors at IFA Berlin. We are well on the way to the IFA returning to its full strength in the next few years.”
Berlin’s Governing Mayor Franziska Giffeyis convinced: “The leading trade fair with its smart innovations and energy-efficient technologies is a motor for the economy and the markets worldwide. It is one of Berlin’s flagships, not only as a trade fair and congress, but also as the leading European hub for innovation and technology. The IFA 2022 is a kind of beacon, not least because after two difficult years it stands for an upswing.”
Sustainability in the focus of consumer and home electronics
In addition to the intelligent networking of devices and smart home solutions, sustainability was
one of the major topics at this year’s IFA in Berlin.
This was also reflected in some of the IFA keynotes: Hakan Bulgurlu,
Arçelik’s Chief Executive Officer, made a passionate appeal to the consumer and home electronics
industry to work together and do their part to mitigate climate change and
reduce pollution. Gwenaelle Avice-Huet,
Schneider Electric’s Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer, delved further into how smart home
devices can make our homes more sustainable.

Sustainability and climate protection will dominate the presentation of the world’s leading manufacturer of premium domestic appliances at the IFA in Berlin. A keen focus will be on the new technologies and features with which Miele aims to protect the environment and support users in acting more responsibly. These will feature alongside clever innovations for creative cooking and lifestyle which are only available from Miele. The family-owned company will present More than 400 appliances at a their booth in Building 2.1, accompanied by inspirational live events and starred chefs-de-cuisine offering food to sample. Trade fair motto: ‘Discover quality ahead of its time. For a better tomorrow’.
A contribution towards reducing food waste comes for example in the form of new free-standing refrigerators from the K 4000 series with their innovative PerfectFresh Active system in which the combination of a temperature of around zero degrees with humidity and a fine mist of water keeps vegetables and fruit crisp and attractive for up to five times longer. In addition, further improved smart cooking assistants and recipe apps as well as intelligent energy management, ensure more sustainability in the household. And more new products at the IFA trade fair mainly focus on the kitchen, starting with a well-known, particularly tasty, nutritious, and healthy preparation method: steam cooking.
In this field, Miele is expanding a model range which is already more than impressive by adding further models both at the top and the bottom ends of the lineup. In concrete terms, these are steam ovens which combine an oven or wall oven with first-class specifications with a fully-fledged steam cooker. Firstly, Miele will be presenting new models with top features, such as improved cleaning convenience. Secondly, there will be a new entry-line model series which will reduce the starting price in this sought-after product category by around one-third, making cooking with steam more accessible to a larger target audience. Miele will also be presenting a new entry-level series of ovens, with a new design, significantly more features and offering better value for money. And, in the booming market for induction hobs with an integrated downdraught extractor, there will be new models at IFA which guarantee more efficient extraction than their predecessors – whilst at the same time being noticeably quieter. All models have been tested to last 20 years. For that reason alone, a decision for Miele is a contribution towards everyday sustainability.
VIOMI will bring a variety of new launching and hot sales to show at IFA exhibition.
