CeBIT is calling – do you answer?
The computer fair CeBIT http://www.cebit.de in Germany is an exhibition and a huge conference. In 2013 there where 280.00 visitors and around 7000 exhibitors. But this numbers are declining.
Don’t get me wrong, I was – and I’m still a big fan, but the Internet change my need to meet people on such huge events. And due this reason, the CeBIT changed a lot – I think back to less visitors and to more quality.

My trip to CeBIT 2014
This year will be my first year since around 20 years of CeBIT where I will not attend the show. Mainly due the reason that I don’t expect to see so many new stuff. The communication with companies is nowadays much easier and this saves me some travel time and as well the over priced hotels in and near Hannover.
Let me know why you go or why you not go.
