BERLIN and AUSTIN, Texas, June 3, 2014 – What comes next in consumer electronics and home appliances?
Industry leaders, innovators and startups imagine the future of technology for work, home and play at ShowStoppers® @ IFA 2014, the Official Press Event of IFA, the global tradeshow that moves markets and inspires buyers.
The seventh edition of the annual press event is set for Thursday, 4 September; IFA runs 5-10 September in Berlin, Germany.
ShowStoppers organizes news and new products for journalists working on deadline to discover the latest smartphones, tablets, gadgets and gear, smart devices powered by Internet-connected apps, laptops, cameras, headphones, software, audio components, connected cars, and more – just in time for the all-important fourth quarter, holiday sales and gift-giving season.
At the 2013 edition of the invitation-only press event, more than 700 top-tier journalists from 47 countries previewed news and new products from 55 companies. Exhibitors included, among many, Amazon, AMD, Beats by Dr. Dre, Cambridge Audio, E Ink, Emporia, Eton, Ford, Jabra, Griffin, iRobot, Logitech, Orbotix, Otterbox, Parallels, Photofast, Simple Audio, Sennheiser, TCL, Technicolor, Texas Instruments, and Western Digital.
“ShowStoppers focuses on business – shaking hands, face-to-face conversations, one-on-one interviews, and the hands on product demos that drive coverage for companies that exhibit at the event,” said Dave Leon, ShowStoppers partner and director of sales.
ShowStoppers @ IFA 2014 takes place on the Messe Berlin Fairgrounds and is the one and only official press event. “This aims the spotlight at news,” said Leon, “and makes the event that much more practical and productive for journalists and exhibitors.”
