CeBIT 2017: The most important trends at a glance

As the largest IT trade fair in the world, the CeBIT once again lures the technically interested and business decision-makers alike to Hanover. What trends can we expect this year? We give a brief overview.

On March 20th CeBIT opens its doors for the 22nd time and presents the latest IT trends with more than 3,000 exhibitors and interesting keynote speakers. Internet of Things, artificial intelligence or autonomous driving are just some of the many topics that will dominate the trade fair this year.

From Unmanned Systems to Virtual Reality

Once again, numerous exhibitors will be able to present their products to the audience in impressive live demonstrations. For example, there will be a 2.400-square-meter “demo zone”, in which manufacturers of UAV drones can present their autonomously navigating aircraft in flight. Besides that, unmanned systems also represent an exciting topic in the automotive industry, around which a large part of CeBIT will be turning.

In contrast, exhibitors from the fields of augmented or virtual reality require far less space. These technologies have left behind their image of being of interest only to the video game industry a long time ago. The main focus of the exhibition will be on the added value that VR glasses have for business environments.

Exchange with industry specialists

As usual, there will be enough room for the exhibitors this year, as well as sufficient opportunities for networking between manufacturers and visitors. In addition, keynotes come from genuine specialists, such as Google Evangelist Raymond Kurzweil or VR expert Tarot Sayed from Nokia.


For business decision makers, the fair will therefore be interesting not only because of the presentation of market-ready solutions for digital transformation.
