CeBIT 2011
March 1-5
Deutsche Messe AG
Hannover, Germany

In 2010, 4,157 exhibitors from 68 countries and more than 330,000 visitors made their way to Hannover for CeBIT. In its heyday the expo managed to draw around 700,000 visitors but it has since shrunk in size. Nevertheless, with its 450,000-square-meter exhibition space CeBIT remains the world's largest digital IT and telecommunications event and eclipses the likes of COMPUTEX, CES and SITEX in exhibition size. In 2011, visitors will see the fair split into four platforms: CeBIT pro for professional and business ICT solutions; CeBIT gov for the public sector; CeBIT lab for innovative research and development and CeBIT life for the latest trends in consumer electronics.
