The world's largest computer exhibition, CeBIT 2007, Will open tomorrow in Hanover, Germany. HWzone.co.il, Mor Shoval, has decided to visit the Hannover Convention Center today and see what is planned for the rest of the week.
The exhibition space spreads across 32 showrooms, and in each hall between 30 and 150 various exhibitors. There is no possibility of covering the whole area of the exhibition during the seven days of the exhibition, so the organizers of the exhibition organized the companies dealing with the same subject, such as motherboards, in nearby pavilions.
If you expected that the day before the exhibition everything will be in place and the crossings will be clean, as is appropriate for an exhibition held in Germany, the homeland of the Seder, you will be disappointed slightly. During the morning hours when I visited the various halls, the chaos prevailed and some of the cabins had not yet begun to be built.
But don't worry - until tomorrow at nine o'clock in the morning, German time (10:00 Israel time), all the booths will be ready, the exhibitors will be briefed and the products that are so interesting will be arranged behind the shop windows.
I started the round in Hall 2 - where Yashar jumped right in front of my eyes the huge AMD remote that is located high above the rest. AMD's stand and Logitech's stand next to it are in the initial stages of construction, and the hustle and bustle dominates. One thing was clear from watching them - the two stalls are going to be huge, if you can call them stalls… these are just small pavilions!
On my way across the hall to another booth I saw, an ASUS booth, I took the following picture - several dozen LCD and plasma screens were ready to be placed there, and later in the day I learned that such a car spectacle sometimes carries 100 giant screens is not so rare.
At the ASUS set-up booth, I mainly saw the gamers' product corner - where, among other things, the company's Crosshair board was displayed (We were intrigued recently
) And screen cards cooled with water.
From Hall 2 I moved to Halls 21 and 24 - the stronghold of hardware companies. You can read about the booths of the manufacturers of motherboards and video cards below, but I ran straight to the Intel booth - I wanted to see the 600 square meter booth in reality. Intel hosts in its pavilion in Hall 21 (the company has several pavilions in the exhibition) the ESL competition (RT for the Electronic Sports League) and to that end it is setting up a huge gaming complex. Formula 1 cars I managed to do a little dip when a Taiwanese guy from the booth next door managed to rip me off in FIFA 2007…
I will not bother you with everything I have seen, in the meantime I can tell that there are many companies and some of the pavilions are going to be huge… Some pictures from the rush that goes here:
