“We are happy to launch the Berlin Photo Week which will be the very first event on this range of topics since the outbreak of the pandemic”, commented Jens Heithecker, Executive Vice President of the Messe Berlin Group, which is an official partner of the Berlin Photo Week with the IFA. ”BPW’s main focus isn’t just the new cameras; we’re more about the core of photography and the fun of making pictures. In a typical year, it’s a great complement to IFA, which is of course much more focused on technology, products, and retailers. We are looking forward to the upcoming experience and also to next year, when we will be able to extend this bridge even further as part of IFA 2022.”
