CeBIT Trade Show Axed

@ 2018/12/07
Deutsche Messe this week said it would axe CeBIT, once the world’s largest IT expos/evebts, and would integrate what is left it into the Hannover Messe show going forward. The trade show organizer said that as demand for horizontal high-tech exhibitions is diminishing. From our perspective, the number of attendees in recent years has been comically low, too. As a result, the expo space bookings for CeBIT 2019 got too low for the show to be economically viable, forcing the company to restructure its event portfolio.

last time I visited Cebit was in 2008 http://www.madshrimps.be/articles/ar...overage-Part-1 and even 10 years ago the signs were clear that the format of that tradeshow had passed its peak.

announcements of new products were already done at CES 2 months before
technical demos were limited
overall show quality went downhill fast


The ones from before were definitely more entertaining : http://www.madshrimps.be/articles/ar...re-for-the-eye
