CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia 2009 (7 – 11 October)
CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia, the leading international trade show for the ICT sector in Eurasia, will take place from 7 to 11 October 2009 in Istanbul. As one of the most important platforms for business technology in the world, CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia last year attracted 971 exhibitors from 21 countries. Covering a display area of approx. 60,000 square metres at the Tüyap Exhibition Grounds in Istanbul, the show was attended by around 160,000 visitors. Its significance to the entire Black Sea region was underlined by the huge media presence – no fewer than 1,900 accredited journalists attended. CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia not only plays an important part in promoting the development of the ICT sector in Turkey, but also reaffirms Istanbul’s growing reputation as a hub of the ICT sector beyond Turkish borders.
Indeed, international interest in CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia, one of the ten biggest trade shows of its kind worldwide, has increased year after year.
Serving as it does as a bridge between East and West, CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia continues to extend its outreach and its program in line with key global trends.
The trade show thus represents an ideal opportunity for companies interested in meeting and identifying potential international business partners. In 2009 the trade show will again be dedicated to the keynote themes Innovation, Job & Career, Software, eHealth and Telehealth, Public Sector Park and HD World. It will also feature a special NetBook area, providing visitors with insights and specialist information. Like CeBIT Hannover, this year’s CeBIT Bilisim will also address what has been dubbed “Webciety” – the interaction of web-based technology and society. Alongside specialist information and insights into society on line, visitors will also be able to use this technology, guided by their own cell phone or using a smart GMS system for arranging appointments between exhibitors and visitors. The CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia concept is designed to
help visitors find all the products they are interested in quickly, easily and systematically.
In 2009 CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia will again provide an optimal showcase for products and services. This will be supported by a wide spectrum of events designed to promote business and joint ventures, as well as seminars, keynote speeches and special events for NGO’s.
