CeBIT Logo

CeBIT, the world’s largest trade fair for the information technology, opened its doors today in Hannover, Germany, with more than 6,000 exhibitors participating from 77 countries.

About 2,700 German companies are taking part in the fair, with 3,311 more from countries around the world. 1,600 exhibitors from Asia make up the biggest group of foreign participants.

This year’s ‘partner country’ is Russia; Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are set to attend a German-Russian ICT summit. In her opening speech today, Merkel called CeBIT “a fair for good ideas.”

Digital imaging is also a prominent feature of this year’s CeBIT with 1500 square meters of floor space in Hall 23 exclusively for the exhibition of cameras and photo services. Big names Canon, Fujifilm, Epson, Sigma, Adobe, Corel, Hasselblad, Phase One and many others are all there.

CeBIT is an annual trade fair organized by Deutsche Messe AG since 1986. Its name derives from “Centrum für Büro und Informationstechnik” (Center for Office and Information Technology). Over 6,200 exhibitors from around 70 countries and some 430,000 visitors from all over the world attended the last CeBIT in 2006.
