The world’s largest computer exhibition Cebit is still being discontinued. According to a statement by the Management Board of Messe AG, the Cebit issue 2019, which is actually planned for June next year, will not take place any more. Messe AG announced that “in view of declining floor space bookings for the CEBIT 2019”, it would streamline the event portfolio: “Cebit’s industry-related digital topics will be continued at the Hannover Messe; top-level specialist events will be developed for the other Cebit topics to decision-makers from selected sectors “. “The new concept of CEBIT, which relied on the triad of trade fair, conference and festival, could not stop the downward trend in visitor numbers,” says Messe AG. Also, the negative trend in area bookings across all thematic segments could not be stopped.
