CeBIT is the world’s largest trade fair showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions for home and work environments. The key target groups are users from industry, the wholesale/retail sector, skilled trades, banks, the services sector, government agencies, science and all users passionate about technology.
This trade show offers an international platform for comparing notes on current industry trends, networking, and product presentations. Throughout the past 25 years, thousands of suppliers and users from all over the world have come together every year in the early spring at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany.
Looking back, the birth of CeBIT on 12 March 1986 was the outcome of a long and complicated decision-making process. The computer industry had become a key feature of HANNOVER MESSE and had contributed to its unique status as the world’s biggest trade show for capital goods. However, the computer exhibitors were having to contend with an increasing number of non-specialists at their stands.
