Do I need to exhibit in IFA in order to participate in ShowStoppers?
No. For the year 2020, participation in IFA is not required.
How does the event work?
ShowStoppers combines a product showcase, hands-on demos, and a relaxed reception into one efficient event. It’s an informal ambiance that includes a buffet and open bars.
Exhibitors arrive 2 to 3 hours prior to the event to set up, and to eat something before the event begins. As journalists arrive, ShowStoppers checks them in to ensure they were invited. As they make their way around the room, during the course of the evening they meet with exhibitors, test products and do what they do best: produce the story.
Are there speaking opportunities?
Yes. ShowStoppers is extending its Virtual Press Conference offerings and bringing it to Berlin allowing you to extend your reach to journalists who choose not to travel to Berlin. Conduct a virtual press conference and then host one on one meetings with journalists. Ask us how you can participate in this offering.

For Exhibitors and Publicists
With every media outlet in the world focusing on the Coronavirus, it’s virtually impossible for publicists – to try to generate coverage for our clients as they try to enhance their client’s public persona, support their corporate branding and sell their products.
ShowStoppersTV is a unique and distinctive opportunity to break the news stranglehold – and generate interest and awareness for your company, products and services.
The introductory cost to participate in ShowStoppers TV is just $1000 per company — and it includes all of the services typically provided by Showstoppers – but with several new twists. Benefits include:
ShowStoppers will also send Swag Bags out after the press conference. We encourage companies to participate – as a way of keeping their products or services on the media’s radar.
As a special first-time offer, the fee will be $1,000. Ultimately, we expect this format to grow in size, scale, scope … and cost.
Consider the benefit of exhibiting/presenting! After all, if you only get one or two stories as a result, that’s an incredible value.
