On September 4, during IFA 2020 Special Edition, the “Digital Start-up of the Year” will be announced on the Innovation Engine stage. Every year, the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) awards prizes to promising young digital companies that are already established on the market. The award is presented by Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker, Parliamentary State Secretary at the BMWi.
The winners will receive total prize money of 110,000 Euros and will benefit from the media-effective, public award ceremony.
The prize is financed by the BMWi’s founding initiatives. Particularly successful start-ups that have been able to realize their founding ideas in a short time are honored in this way.
To participate in the IFA 2020 Special Edition, registration in advance is necessary. Registered participants will also receive access to the IFA 2020 Xtended Space, the digital extension of the IFA 2020 Special Edition.
Please note: Due to the current situation this year we can neither offer on-site accreditation for media representatives nor registration for trade visitors. Therefore online pre-registration is mandatory. In order to enable as many visitors as possible to participate on site, a query will be made in the course of this pre-registration regarding the intended day of the visit.
About IFA 2020 Special Edition
The IFA 2020 Special Edition – consisting of physical live events focusing on its B2B core functions of IFA – offers a meeting place for industry and trade in the IFA Business, Retail & Meeting Lounges and cross-industry innovations at SHIFT Mobility meets IFA NEXT. While these event elements are aimed at trade visitors, media representatives can exclusively experience the latest products and services, press briefings and the IFA Opening Keynote live at the IFA Global Press Conference.
Health and safety is a top priority at IFA 2020 Special Edition, which will take place from 3 to 5 September 2020 as a three-day event with a limited number of participants in accordance with current regulations.
Digital IFA Experience
With a virtual extension – the “IFA Xtended Space” – the physical event is complemented by live and on demand streaming of presentations, match-making tools and digital product demonstrations. The Xtended Space thereby is accessible for both on-site guests and all other interested participants around the globe.
