The coronavirus was something unknown, and now it is the talk of all conversations, and even the cause of our saying goodbye to IFA 2020 The advance of the coronavirus is almost unstoppable, although little by little the curve is falling and with it the thousands of unjust deaths that the virus leaves behind.
IFA is the most famous international technology fair in the world and is held at the beginning of September, but it is seen that this year there will be no fair in the capital of Germany.
In an official statement, from the IFA Berlin Twitter account, they make somewhat contradictory statements, since they begin by saying that the fair is going ahead, but with a concept innovative after German government ban.
This ban refers to crowds, ie Germany has limited crowds and has banned gatherings of more than 5,000 people. These guidelines fall on IFA Berlin 2020, since hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world attend this fair. This ban extends until October 24, 2020.
The smart thing would be to change the date of the IFA 2020 celebration, but the advance and development of the coronavirus has knocked down the tower of cards and now nobody knows how the story will end.
Because of this, the official statement goes on to say that "the most famous international fair in the world (.) will not be able to continue as usual." The organizer of the IFA in Berlin, the company MesseBerlin, also appears in this statement, as the public is informed that it has been a very thoughtful decision for weeks.
From now on is when the statement informs that other innovative options are being considered, since the organization of the international fair is already well advanced.
At least the doors are not closed to one of the most famous international consumer electronics and home appliance fairs in the world, as happened with MWC 2020, but it will not be the same, and the brands are likely to do online press conferences and the like.
Now it's time to be attentive to the next updates of the news where certain terms of this decision will be clarified, from information referring to the guidelines of the Merkel government, to clarifications regarding the"innovative concept" in which the IFA 2020 celebration floats.
