HIGHLIGHTS IN 2008
PLAN TO SUCCEED ON EVERY LEVEL
The world’s leading ICT show once again proved an all-round success. New additions
to the program such as green IT and the new-look CeBIT Global Conferences, plus strong
growth in all display categories and the successful introduction of new themes, have further
strengthened CeBIT’s leading position in the marketplace.
Under the tagline “Improving Life for the Global Village” the CeBIT Global Conferences
addressed issues of topical interest across the ICT industry. Distinguished speakers pre-
sented their visions for information technology, ﬁnance & controlling, marketing & sales,
human resources, manufacturing and procurement & logistics. Topical issues such as the
sustainable use of modern information and communication technologies for business and
society were discussed by speakers and visitors. The CeBIT Global Conferences served to
attract additional target groups to Hannover from all sectors of industry, including profes-
sionals working in purchasing, marketing, sales, PR and controlling.
Energy efﬁciency and environmental protection are important issues today, not least
for the ICT industry – where they offer substantial business potential. With this year’s
“green IT” presentation CeBIT has created the ﬁrst-ever platform for the digital business
community to address this central social challenge. CeBIT presented a range of solutions
and innovations for cutting carbon emissions. From power-saving laptops to computer
centres with a small carbon footprint – in 2008 exhibitors in Hannover showed that the
ICT industry acknowledges its environmental responsibilities, and is facing up to them
with imagination and resourcefulness.
Hannover is where the top people
from government, science and
high-tech industry come together.
CeBIT is fast becoming the Davos
of the ICT industry.
August-Wilhelm Scheer, BITKOM
HIGHLIGHTS IN 2009
LOOKING AHEAD: HIGHLIGHTS IN 2009
Last year’s cutting-edge high-tech is this year’s standard product line. This is why
CeBIT is always looking for new trends, which it then explores in the world’s No.1 market-
place. For 2009 a number of important themes have already emerged, which will create
and proﬁtably exploit new market potential. For example:
Demographic change and the need to streamline costs are posing new challenges
for the healthcare market. The ICT industry sees itself as a driver of innovation in these is-
sues of major importance. CeBIT mirrors this growth market and documents the complete
spectrum of ICT use in the healthcare sector.
INTERNET & MOBILE SOLUTIONS
Digitalization and mobility are changing our lives at an increasingly rapid pace. Web 2.0
is changing the face of the media world. Sales worth billions are now being transacted
over the Internet. Business processes and workplaces are going mobile, while the demand
for web-based business solutions continues to rise. CeBIT is actively promoting the trend
towards mobility with the new display category Internet & Mobile Solutions.
eLearning and knowledge management are playing an ever greater role in business,
science, administration and education. The eLearning section of the show reﬂects the new
mood of optimism at CeBIT – reason enough to develop and extend this section further in
A HOT TOPIC AT CeBIT 2009: webciety
The Internet is revolutionizing business processes at an accelerating rate, and entering
into every area of our lives. It is – quite simply – the dominant theme of our age.
CeBIT 2009 will document the workings of the Internet in full, pulling together all the
dynamic trends that are turning the information superhighway into a global meta-medium.
THE webciety AREA IN HALL 6
Web 2.0 is the next-generation Internet, very different in terms of the way we use it and
perceive it. New technical developments, new content and broader access have generated
new applications that have revolutionized Internet usage. The webciety is here to stay.
Here at CeBIT, we give a home to companies that see networking and communication as
their world. Virtual companies have no showroom, no shop window. But once a year, we
can change all that. Your “homebase” can be here at CeBIT – designed in the visual language
of the Web, with a presentation supported by sophisticated lighting and projection effects.
This is the place to display your solutions for Web 2.0 /Enterprise 2.0: new trends, innova-
tions, business models, blogs, wikis, social networks, social software, user-generated and

CeBIT 2008 was a notable success for
us this year. Although the show was a day
shorter we still had as many visitors at

by the crowds of visitors at the stand – simply thousands
of people interested in innovative products. In short,
we were extremely satisﬁed with CeBIT 2008. Overall,

The USA is not only an important trading partner.
California’s Silicon Valley is also a textbook example of
successful business development driven by inward invest-
ment. We are hoping to learn from the Americans and get
some useful input into our own strategy planning.

PARTNER STATE CALIFORNIA
California is in many ways a model for Germany’s ICT industry, representing such key
values as dynamism, leadership in innovation and willingness to invest. The choice of
California as the ofﬁcial “Partner State” for CeBIT 2009 signals a new mood of optimism and
offers an opportunity for developing closer long-term business ties between the USA and
Europe through collaboration and partnership.

iF INTERNATIONAL FORUM DESIGN
THE IF LABEL – A HIGHLY RESPECTED GLOBAL BRAND
For more than 50 years iF Industrie Forum Design e.V. and iF International Forum Design
GmbH have had an established presence at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds. These inde-
pendent design organizations have played a crucial role in mediating between the design
community and industry. The annual iF design awards have contributed signiﬁcantly to the
success of many design services – both in the business world and in terms of promoting
a greater awareness of design in the public at large. Furthermore, the coveted iF label is
employed by companies as a valuable marketing tool – a visible indicator of high quality in
products and services, and a useful point of reference for buyers in the marketplace.
The iF product design award, for example, currently attracts nearly 3,000 entries from
more than 35 countries, making it one of the world’s most important competitions. The
winning products, chosen by an international jury of design experts, are put on display
at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds, where they are seen by some 300,000 visitors from
all over the world.
And then there is the iF communication design award, which has quickly established itself
as one of the top international competitions, and is now seen as a reliable indicator of the
latest trends in communication design.
The iF concept award, an international competition for young designers, reﬂects the de-
manding standards that students are now expected to meet. And business enterprises
view the competition as a worthy cause that they are only too pleased to sponsor.
Another major focus of iF’s activities is the devising and organization of events that high-
light outstanding design and visions for a global world. These include (for example) the
special design and technology display “design: driving innovation” which is taking place
for the second time at CeBIT 2009.
iF is also the driving force behind the sporting event “CeBIT Charity Run” which is like-
wise being staged for the second time in March 2009 at CeBIT. Participants can choose to
run once or twice around the 7 km circuit on the Exhibition Grounds – or complete three
laps for the half-marathon. Again, the event offers great sponsorship opportunities for
businesses wanting to adopt a high proﬁle at next year’s CeBIT.
