The CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia 2003.
The LetsGoDigital team is ready to take off for the biggest ICT Fair in Eurasia, held in Istanbul, Turkey from 2-7 September 2003. It is the International Trade Fair for Information Technology, Telecommunications, Software and Services for Turkey and the Eurasian Region. The show is held on a fairground of 52.000 sqm. Over 850 exhibitors are hosted here, these exhibitors come from 22 different countries to contribute the fair. And approximately 160.000 visitors, delegations and press members from 55 countries willl attend the show. The CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia serves as an important catalyst for the Eurasian market by bringing together ICT suppliers and customers from around the globe. The timing of this year's show couldn't be better, the economy is definitely going up, and with the level of international participation the fair is the ideal vehicle for companies seeking to forge new business contacts and secure future market share.
The LetsGoDigital team took the time to interview exhibitors of various brands in order to get to know the people and their products behind the stands! The location (Istanbul), the show itself, the European approach, the Eastern atmosphere turn this show into a special event. A tour through Istanbul is necessary, and walking through Sultanahmet (a part of Istanbul city) is tasting the 'couleur locale': is, smelling the fishmarket, the barbecues, is seeing the people fishing on the bridge, not 1 or 2, but 30 or 40, is also seeing the Bosporus, that runs like a border between the European and Eastern side, is visiting the Blue Mosque and experiencing the sacred energy, is also tasting the rich food and is gazing at the sun and wondering: what am I doing here? And then of course I remember: we are here for the CeBIT Bilisim! And I am surprised about how in this part of our planet, in Istanbul east and west come together in this Show: The CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia, the largest show on Information Technology and Communications, Software and Services.
The show opens with speeches of Mr. Jörg Schomburg, CeBIT Managing Director and Mr. Safak Alpay, HIFAS Board Member who welcome the members of the press and quide them through the show. As we approach the entrance of the CeBIT Bilisim Eurasia fair, we notice the different view from last years's entry because of the white tent in front of the building which is used as an entrance to guide the large amount of people quicker through the gates. The show is held in 7 halls with different theme's. In Hall 1 we find Communications and Network Technologies, Hall 2 contains e-government and forum area, e-municipality, future parc and forum areas, Hall 3: from Turkey to the Globe, Made-in Turkey, Halls 4 and 5: Information Technologies and Hall 6 The IT market where people can buy products without having to enter the show, and without having to pay for the show. In hall number 7: the new products in Mobile Communication Technologies. "Made in Turkey" is the name of a special display which is held for the first time this year. Turkish companies will be presenting their latest developments on hardware, software and ICT services. This year's theme: "From Turkey to the Globe" aims to attract international cooperation partners and presents Istanbul, a city of 16 million inhabitants, as Turkey's central ICT market. On different platforms there are also various entertaining show.
