Maandag 20 mei heeft Deutsche Messe bekend gemaakt per 2020 een nieuwe beurs in Hannover te houden. Na het stoppen met de Cebit heeft men vastgesteld dat er specifiek voor met MKB in Duitsland geen IT focussed beurs is terwijl de vraag wel bestaat. TWENTY2x springt in dat gat en zal in maart 2020 de poorten openen.

TWENTY2x komt tot stand omdat vier Duitse (branche) organisaties de handen in een hebben geslagen. Onderstaand fragment van het persbericht maakt dat duidelijk. De beurs die drie dagen duurt (17-19 maart 2020) zal het MKB informeren over IT in brede zin. In de schijnwerpers zullen onder andere komen te staan security en “het nieuwe werken” dat in Duitsland nog in de kinderschoenen staat.

Hannover. In March of 2020, Deutsche Messe is launching TWENTY2X – a new digital technology show to be held at the Exhibition Center in Hannover, Germany. The show will focus on IT technologies and their role in the digitization of SME business processes. It will present use cases and application scenarios of key importance to decision-makers and IT managers as they work to futureproof their organizations in the digital age. TWENTY2X will be staged over three days – from 17 to 19 March (Tuesday through Thursday) – in halls 7 and 8 and in the Convention Center. Comprising a trade fair and supporting conference, the show is being organized by Deutsche Messe in partnership with Germany’s Federal Association of SME IT Companies (BITMi), the Association of the Internet Industry (eco), the German IT Users Federation (VOICE) and the German Startups Association (BVDS).

TWENTY2X as a digital enabler for SMEs

TWENTY2X is a digital enabler for SMEs and is aimed primarily at businesses from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Its target visitors are principally CEOs and IT decision-makers from SMEs and startups, as well as IT experts and advisers. “Our objective is to help small and medium-sized businesses along their digitization journey so that they are ready for the future and better positioned in their respective competitive settings,” commented Deutsche Messe Managing Board member Dr. Andreas Gruchow. “TWENTY2X is a new B2B event that gives SMEs exactly what they need in order to ready themselves for the years ahead: concrete solutions, modern technologies, and best practices that they can leverage to make sound decisions.”
