The IFMA show hasn't been the most popular trade show when it comes down to new BMX bikes and parts. The show is held only two weeks after the (more popular) EUROBIKE show in Friedrichshafen so if you've been to that show, you won't be seeing many new things in Cologne.
The BMX representation at the IFMA consisted of the La Finca and Busy distribution booths that were strategically placed next to the Dirt Jumps. This meant that in no time the booths was covered in dust. The Taiwan section also had a few shitty BMX bikes on display and FELT only showed a small part of what they have to offer for 2005. There's actually no need to go to the IFMA show if you want to see the latest BMX stuff.
The reason why still a lot of BMX people show up in Cologne is the IFMA Bike Challenge King Of Dirt. The jumps that are built are fairly small so pretty much anyone can jump them. Find a KOD report somewhere else on this site (freestyle section) to find out who won and who was there.
It's hard to write a report if not much was happening. Might as well stop here.
