In a world where large trade shows are increasingly going to the wall, CeBIT stands out by bucking the trend and continuing to go from strength to strength.
The event is rightly famous for being the world's largest computer show, where the most influential resellers, developers, manufacturers and component suppliers meet up for a tech-fest par excellence.
The scope of the show is huge: there are products for every industry and every sector, from the smallest components to the largest enterprise systems. This year there will be a focus on mobile computing, reflecting the fact that notebooks are taking over from desktop PCs in terms of global sales.
Another key technology area will be the burgeoning home entertainment sector which is increasingly seeing computing technology merged with traditional audio and visual domestic systems. Reflecting this trend, Media Centre PCs and other home entertainment servers are out in force.
Cutting edge PCs, phones and PDAs will be on display, as well as some really cool technology such as what is claimed to be the world's largest LCD TV.
The team of journalists from vnunet.com and our partners across Europe will be out in force bringing you the latest news and analysis as it happens.
