(IFA 2010) IFA trade show to open with latest 3D electronics, home appliances
By Lee Youkyung
BERLIN, Sept. 2 (Yonhap) -- The annual IFA, Europe's largest technology fair, will kick off on Friday in Germany's capital, highlighting bigger, thinner and more diverse 3D products and smarter home appliances made by about 1,200 companies around the world.

The IFA, or Internationale Funkausstellung in German, is one of the world's two biggest industry fairs along with the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in Las Vegas every January. The six-day event, which will mark its 50th exhibition this year, usually serves as a ground for companies to promote and market their products for the second half of the year. Unlike other exclusive tech fairs, the IFA is open to the general public, drawing family and student visitors.
