A Brief History of IFA (According to Wikipedia)

IFA is traditionally known worldwide for embracing modern inventions reimagning future advancements in technology. The Internationale Funkausstellung was first commenced back in 1924, in Berlin, Germany.

IFA was originally founded to highlight new inventions glorifying modernity via "radio" to the world. Highlighting radio since the word Funkausstellung means "radio exhibition" in German (4).

IFA is traditionally known for being home to significant introductory inventions throughout history. The cathode-ray-tube television (5), the first cassette recorder (6), etc., describe the event and Europe's significant importance in modern innovation.

The expo allows exhibitors to showcase their breakthrough inventions, launch the latest products, and develop product upgrades for the general audience and also for other tech experts attending the event.

In the historic beginning, the radio installation and other technological introductions on display received widespread attention due to daily coverage in all German media outlets that spread slowly across the world.

The event is traditionally known for being the pioneer of several introductions of inventions throughout European history. The event receives the same recognition today as well, as once in 2015 it attracted 245,000 guests and 1645 exhibitors (8).
