Deutsche Messe revealed some of the first details about CeBIT 2010, which will take place on March 2-6, 2010. The main topic of next year's CeBIT will be "Connected Worlds", the focal point of the fair will be on how innovative ICT companies converge worlds that were hitherto largely separate. More details at CeBIT.
The new major topic was developed in cooperation with leading companies. "The motto and focal point of CeBIT 2010 will be 'Connected Worlds'. It describes how the innovative strength of the ICT industry is leading to the rapid convergence of worlds that were hitherto largely separate," explained Raue. "Those who succeed in networking different areas as intelligently as possible will enjoy long-term business success. That applies to IT hardware, mobile equipment, web applications, the best concepts for users and, not least, all applications in people's working and private lives." The ICT sector helps other industries to increase their profits through new digitalized and networked business concepts.
Raue emphasized that next year's CeBIT, which runs from Tuesday (2 March) to Saturday (6 March), will be more efficient - for exhibitors and visitors alike. The major display categories will be structured in line with visitors' needs, and optimal use will be made of the floor space in the halls - according to current planning a total of 18 will be occupied. Raue added: "We have further developed and consolidated the topic-based layout of the Exhibition Grounds, and the topic areas have now been structured even more clearly." At the request of exhibitors, companies will also have the opportunity to organize large-scale corporate events at the CeBIT venue. A number of companies and their partners will be occupying entire halls.
The traditional major topic areas at CeBIT, such as business IT, communications, ICT infrastructure, public sector and future parc, focus on application solutions and have now been supplemented by new content. For instance, the topical business issues of IT security and banking & finance will be presented at CeBIT 2010 together under one roof. For the first time the growth areas of telematics, navigation, logistics and automotive will be grouped under the new title "Destination ITS".
A new attraction at CeBIT will be a presentation named "Advanced Office & Conference Solutions" that will incorporate solutions from the areas of projection, conference technology, office processes and office equipment. "Next Level 3D" is another new topic. It concentrates various 3D-imaging technologies for cinemas, private homes and offices in one location.
