MOSCOW, January 1. /TASS/. Russian and international experts will discuss information and telecommunication technologies at one of the world’s largest international exhibitions CEBIT Russia, which the technopark Skolkovo will host on June 25-27, 2019, the Skolkovo Foundation’s press-service said.
The organizers have changed the format of the event to hold it in mid-summer. This will allow for holding some events outdoors," the news release says.
CEBIT is one of the world’s oldest and largest telecommunications exhibitions. Originally the company Deutsche Messe AG held it in Hannover each spring. Several years ago a number of CEBIT’s industry-related theme sections were integrated with the world’s largest industrial exhibition Hannover Messe.
"Against the backdrop of great demand for CEBIT themes in the emerging markets the brand is bound to meet with growing support in Russia. The existing sections - the exhibition platform and business program - will be complemented by a special site for informal meetings between visitors to and participants in CEBIT Russia," the news release runs.
The Skolkovo technopark’s CEO Renat Batyrov said the CEBIT brand would help the Russian event serve as another link of cooperation with foreign partners.
"Our joint project with the technopark Skolkovo - CEBIT Russia - has good chances to become one of the leading IT events, because at the moment our team can focus entirely on preparations for the Moscow debut. Partnership with Skolkovo is opening up vast growth opportunities for CEBIT as a brand," the news release quotes Deutsche Messe board member Andreas Gruchow as saying.
