CeBIT cancan girls
CeBIT can also be glamorous. Just about.

It might not have the allure of MWC or the glitz of CES but CeBIT remains one of the more important events of a tech journalist calendar. The event will take place from the 10 to 14 March in Hannover, Germany and interestingly, the organisers have decided to refocus their efforts.

100% Business

Deutsche Messe say that CeBIT is now 100 per cent business with "new perspectives in IT business" being the tagline. Trends that will be explored over these five days include Datability and Big Data, Cloud, Social Business and Mobile.

TechRadar Pro will be covering the event on the ground as its only business-focused online tech publication partners in the UK. We've partnered with the event organisers to give away event tickets worth 60 Euros each to the first 100 TechRadar Pro readers who register here.

Wozniak headlining

Silicon Valley icon and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, will give a keynote address at CeBIT on 13 March 2013 as part of the event's Global Conferences.

Other keynote speakers that have been enlisted include the CEO of Kaspersky Lab, Eugene Kaspersky, Cristina Riesen from Evernote and Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia.

In total, more than 100 international speakers will be sharing 20 stages with an expected 3,500 exhibitors from 70 countries are expected.

He dabbled in website building and web hosting when DHTML and frames were en vogue and started writing about the impact of technology on society just before the start of the Y2K hysteria at the turn of the last millennium. Then followed a weekly tech column in a local business magazine in Mauritius, a late night tech radio programme called Clicplus and a freelancing gig at the now-defunct, Theinquirer, with the legendary Mike Magee as mentor. Following an eight-year stint at ITProPortal.com where he discovered the joys of global techfests, Désiré now heads up TechRadar Pro. He has an affinity for anything hardware and staunchly refuses to stop writing reviews of obscure products or cover niche B2B software-as-a-service providers.
