Visiting CeBit 2016 Hannover – We are looking forward to participating in CeBit 2016 from March 14 – 18, 2016. Please let us know if you will be there too and let us meet!
CeBIT is the largest and most internationally representative computer expo. The trade fair appears each year on the Hanover fairground. The world’s largest fairground, in Hanover, Germany. Considered a barometer of current trends and a measure of the state of the art in information technology. Organized by Deutsche Messe AG.
With an exhibition area of roughly 450,000 m² (5 million ft²) and a peak attendance of 850,000 visitors during the dot-com boom, it is larger both in area and attendance than its Asian counterpart COMPUTEX. CeBIT is a German language acronym for Centrum für Büroautomation, Informationstechnologie und Telekommunikation, which translates as “Center for Office Automation, Information Technology and Telecommunication”.
CeBIT is traditionally the computing part of the Hanover Fair, a big industry trade show held every year. Established in 1970, with the opening of the Hanover fairground’s new Hall 1. Then the largest exhibition hall in the world. However, in the 1980s the information technology and telecommunications part was straining the resources of the trade fair. So much that it was given a separate trade show starting in 1986, which was held four weeks earlier than the main Hanover Fair.
The number of visitors for the new exhibition increased to 830,000 in 2001. But by 2007 the CeBIT expo attendance had shrunk to around 200,000. After that attendance rebounded to 334,000 by 2010. The 2008 expo was marred by police raids of 51 exhibitors for patent infringement. In 2009, the U.S. state of California became official Partner State of Germany’s IT and telecommunications industry association, BITKOM, and of CeBIT 2009. focusing on environmentally-friendly technologies.
Visiting CeBit 2016 Hannover was a complete success. It was a special pleasure to see many old and new faces again. We were able to see some new products and acquired a few new projects. Just have a look at our corporate website. It is always nice to visit the CeBit again.
