Next CeBIT with consumer electronics

Next year, consumer electronics will also be shown for the first time at CeBIT. So far, such devices were frowned upon because they violated the nomenclature. However, devices from the entertainment industry have been shown again and again in recent years.

For example at the stands of graphics card manufacturers who wanted to use their demo systems to demonstrate the performance of their products, especially to game fans. According to Deutsche Messe spokesman Eberhard Roloff, DigiCams were also shown, which actually violated the nomenclature. For example, Microsoft filed a complaint last year against the installation of game consoles from Sony, so that Sony then took them off the stand. With the inclusion of devices from the entertainment industry, such as digital televisions, DVD players or even game consoles, according to Eberhard Roloff, there is no danger of competing with the radio exhibition in Berlin, rather the Berlin radio exhibition is more and more affecting CeBIT. In addition, CeBIT is a purely professional trade fair and not intended for end users, continues Eberhard Roloff. The main focus of CeBIT remains the business market. A CeBIT Home for normal users, which opened its doors for the first time two years ago, had to be closed due to a lack of acceptance and interest. It is doubtful whether CeBIT will maintain its reputation as a professional and business fair for a long time, given the expansion of its range of products in the direction of entertainment electronics. The next CeBIT will take place next year from March 12th to 19th, as always in Hanover, three months later, more precisely on June 18th to 20th, the first CeBIT in the USA, the 'CeBIT america', will take place in New York .
