Parallels and CorelDRAW at IFA 2019 in Berlin

Parallels and CorelDRAW at IFA 2019 in Berlin

For the first time, Parallels and CorelDRAW® will be represented at IFA 2019 with a joint booth – Booth 105, Hall 16. In addition to the highlights of the current product lines for consumers such as Parallels Desktop®, Corel PaintShop Pro, Painter 2020 and of course CorelDRAW, the B2B solutions will also be presented. Fun and excitement will be provided with the slot machine where you can win prizes worth several thousand euros.

A couple of weeks from now,
from Sept. 6 – 11, retailers, innovators, media, and, of course, consumers,
will be flocking to the Messe Berlin Exhibition Grounds for the 2019 edition of
IFA Berlin, one of the oldest and largest tech trade shows in the world.

Parallels has been a member of the Corel family since December 2019. And that’s exactly how we will present Parallels Desktop at IFA 2019, together with Corel at a joint booth – Booth 105, Hall 16.

We’ll be showcasing various products, including the new Parallels Desktop 15. As we’ve always done in previous versions of Parallels Desktop for Mac, we’ve worked closely with the folks at Apple to incorporate new features and functionality into v15 so users can truly experience the best of both (Mac and Windows) worlds. At IFA Berlin 2019, you’ll be among the first to witness the latest Parallels Desktop features, including: DirectX 11 support to run CAD/CAM applications such as Autodesk Revit 2020, Lumion and ArcGIS Pro 2.3 as well as games such as Madden 19, Age of Empires Definitive Edition and Crysis 3 on the Mac, plus, the latest macOS® Catalina innovations, additional Mac integration points, new virtualized hardware, performance enhancements and much more.

Of course, the experts for all other Parallels products will be at our booth to provide you detailed information: Parallels Toolbox, the all-in-one solution with over 30 tools for macOS and Windows 10, and the professional business solutions Parallels Remote Application Server and Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft SCCM.

Corel will be showcasing PaintShop Pro 2020, Painter 2020 and, of course, CorelDRAW 2019, providing solutions for B2C and B2B customers. The focus here will also be on CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2019, which is used specifically in the area of technical documentation.

You can also play on our slot machine and with a little luck win amazing prizes worth several thousands of Euros.

Parallels Innovations Continue as Part of the Corel Family

Parallels Innovations Continue as Part of the Corel Family

From our humble beginnings as a small startup, we envisioned and created solutions for virtualized computing. Our constant focus on innovating better customer experiences generated dozens of industry firsts, which were introduced with every new product release over the years. Today, the Parallels family of software solutions make it simpler than ever to securely run the applications you need on any device—anytime, anywhere.

This unrivaled leadership in innovation began in 2006 with the introduction of mainstream virtualization on Mac® computers; we utilized the Apple®-Intel architecture to create Parallels Desktop® for Mac.

This innovation has continued thanks to all our employees, partners, and customers who make Parallels the success it is today!

Now, Parallels continues to operate independently as part of the Corel family of software brands—so it’s business as usual for our team, partners, and customers. Corel’s plans for significant investments in Parallels will enable us to accelerate our work at innovating software solutions that benefit businesses and consumers worldwide. Although I can’t share details yet, we look forward to delivering brand-new Parallels software in 2019, as well as further enhancing the features and performance of our family of quality software solutions.

As we integrate our businesses, our #1 priority is continuing to deliver the best-quality products and services for our customers. With Parallels being an independent business unit of Corel, this is an easy, business-as-usual transition. We’re learning each other’s best practices, sharing technologies, and leveraging our strengths to accelerate profitable growth that benefits our customers.
