Ulrich Weingärtner, Director of Architecture and Events at AG, explains that the environment, Berlin's decommisioned Tempelhof airport, will prove integral to the atmosphere: "We are making a conscious effort to be more involved in the common framework, unlike other trade shows, and to create a homogeneous overall mood through lighting, sound, catering and entertainment."
The event will run 26-29 October 2011.
