CeBIT Global Conferences

The LOFT – Experience Technology

The No. 1 exhibition for your high-tech vision. Unashamedly in-your-face and totally awesome. If you’re looking for a creative and innovative presentation platform for you and your company, then this is the showcase for you.


The LOFT at CeBIT – where the stuff of science fiction becomes reality. Visit the LOFT, where 70 million year-old dinosaurs are alive and well, holograms are par for the course, and cyborgs talk about man-machine hybrids.

The Loft will house a series of three-dimensional installations that will trace the digital transformation phenomenon in various areas of personal and working life. The focus will be not so much on the transformational technologies themselves as on the way we use and experience them every day. The LOFT will be open to all CeBIT guests.

Creativity, Technology and Sustainability

How will clothes look like in the future? How will digital technology influence production and use of clothes as well as fashion trends? Fashion students of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts , Hanover are presenting their collections and their creative and critical visions of future fashion. They used innovative materials, virtual fittings and new technologies like laser cutting and 3-D printing to discuss gender- and generation-fluidity and sustainable concepts. So fashion is seen as a possibility, to better the world.
