CeBIT Eurasia Opens in Istanbul, IT Focus This Year is on SMBs

SYS-CON Media Plans to Colocate "Web Services Edge Eurasia" with CeBIT Eurasia in Istanbul in 2005

    While CeBIT America, after just two experimental years, was axed last month - there will be no CeBIT America 2005 - in Europe things are somewhat different.

    CeBIT Eurasia for example opened on Tuesday in Istanbul, the Turkish commercial capital, with high hopes of no fewer than 160,000 visitors from 64 countries. The emphasis this year, according to Jorg Schomburg, Chairperson of Dunya CeBIT, is on small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

    Modeled on CeBIT Hannover, which has long described itself as "the world's leading trade show for information technology, telecommunications and networks, software and services," and which takes place in Hannover, Germany, annually every March, this is the twelfth successive CeBIT Eurasia. 900 companies are in attendance, according to Schomburg, from countries such as China, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, and the USA.

    Widely considered as being the business gateway to Eurasia, Istanbul is the perfect location for this particular link in the CeBIT chain that now encircles the world, including now events in Shanghai and Sydney as well as this one in Istanbul.

    (September 2, 2004) - SYS-CON Media CEO, Fuat Kircaali reporting live from the
    opening of CeBIT Eurasia in Istanbul, Turkey

    It remains to be seen whether one of the topics of conversation among exhibitors will be the puzzling question of why an event like CeBIT Eurasia can flourish, attracting domestic and foreign exhibitors and attendees, while both CeBIT America and even now Comdex - the longstanding IT extravaganza traditionally held in Las Vegas but now canceled for 2005 - are withering on the vine.

    Held in a 55,000-square meter enclosed area at the TUYAP Exhibition Center on the European side of Istanbul, CeBIT Eurasia's organizers say of the event this year that the tally of foreign foreign companies visiting has increased by an impressive 30%.

    CeBIT Eurasia aims to set the agenda of Turkey and the surrounding countries for the coming five years, say its organizers. The event has different thematic sections and forums, including Gelecek Parki ("Future Park"), Turkiye'den Kureye ("Made in Turkey"), where Turkish products and value-added services are being showcased to foreigner investors, and "e-Municipality," developing the concept of e-administration and using IT to help drive citizen participation in local and national government.

    The second paragraph of your story starts with the sentence "CeBIT Eurasia for example opened on Tuesday in Istanbul, the Turkish capital, with high hopes of no fewer than 160,000 visitors from 64 countries." Istanbul is not the Turkish capital; Ankara is. Well, Istanbul hopes to be the technology capital of middle east and has come a long way to achive that. The event, IMHO, was a succesfull one.

    The USA and Europe are very different, you only have to look here to see that. Comdex in USA is not Comdex elsewhere.

    I studied in Hannover. It's a very nice City and I miss it (I currently reside in Krefeld, west germany) which is the crappiest town of the country and is world second only to Bombay in terms of dirtyness. How is it in Istanbul?

    It's wonderful how the consumer technology market is always ahead.
    But how about the technology to help save humanity (eco-stupidity, famine.. etc)!?

    I know that people rarely think about these kind of things, let alone do something about it, cuz we have better things to do, but one day all these things that we push to the side will bite us when we least expect it.
    If you don't believe me, just wait and see!

    No CeBit America in 2005, sure - but Comdex is bound to return to Las Vegas next year in some shape or form because they have a contract at the Convention Centre until 2007!

    There are other (international) versions of Comdex too, it's not only CeBit that does that. Comdex China was in 2003, not too sure about 04. Comdex India started all the way back in 1992 and wasn't there a Comdex Brazil recently?

    The big Hannover show is fine. So too is CeBit Asia, CeBit Australia, and the CeBit Bilisim Eurasia you're reporting on here.

    CeBit Broadcast, Cable & Satellite and ISCeSatellite & Communications fairs are all going ahead as planned, too. It's only the US and the UK that are losing interest in tech shows. Your loss, guys.

    It is highly unlikely that smaller firms will generally outsource their work to Asia or Eurasia etc in my opinion, at least for the foreseeable future. Why? The work they require on a day to day basis is usually undefined and chaotic. Usually larger projects are outsourced and even smaller ones require the tasks to be well-defined and documented. Also, the savings would not be that significant for a few workers, where a company can decide instead to hire a more junior developer or just generally pay less for the position.

    Offshoring 09/02/04 09:09:25 AM EDT

    I wonder whether at this event there is the same kind of international focus on sourcing as you find in Asia, at the CeBIT Asia event in Shanghai for example? In Shanghai threy have a special Outsourcing Matchmaking Meeting, and something they call the Sourcing Conference.
