Seven International Pavilions will feature over 60 companies from Germany, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Taiwan, Pakistan and Jiangsu Province, China.
As the conference marks its 16th year, the international presence at CeBIT Australia continues to grow as a result of NSW’s reputation as the regional hub for business technology and innovation, providing the opportunity for international companies to showcase technology advancements in Australia.
Harvey Stockbridge, Managing Director of Hannover Fairs Australia, organisers of CeBIT Australia, recognised the pivotal role the conference and exhibition plays in promoting cutting-edge innovations from across Asia Pacific to an international market.
“CeBIT Australia is a truly international event, connecting exhibitors from 34 countries, including seven International Pavilions, to enterprise, government and SME technology leaders from across the Asia Pacific, while also creating a platform to showcase the best of Australian innovation to an international audience,” said Mr Stockbridge.

NSW has worked hard to be the location of choice for technology companies wanting to access the Asia Pacific. The number and range of nations represented at 2017’s CeBIT reinforces our role as the gateway to the region.”
