Are you a foosball fan?

Hannover isn't just home to CEBIT, it's also a mecca for foosball aficionados and, since everyone knows foosball is a firm favorite at IT startups, that brings us back full circle. Silpion is also well aware of the connection, and is staging daily tournaments at the fair under the banner "Digitization is a Team Sport".

Established in Hamburg in 2000, Silpion IT-Solutions GmbH is among the leading full-service IT service providers from northern Germany exhibiting at CEBIT 2018. What really makes them popular in the home of foosball, however, is that Silpion holds the world record for the largest ever foosball tournament, with 1,926 participants. In fact, as far as Silpion is concerned, foosball and digitization are a match made in heaven that everyone needs to try.

So, where better to share their enthusiasm than at Europe's Business Festival for Innovation and Digitization? Silpion is inviting CEBIT visitors to join it at an XL foosball arena measuring more than 250 square meters. Anyone who wants to drink in the atmosphere of anticipation ahead of the soccer World Cup should head towards the SAP Ferris wheel to find the perfect place for fun, foosball and friendly networking! Mini-tournaments, each lasting 30 to 45 minutes, are being held hourly from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (except on Tuesday evening) to find the best team for each day. The finals in the evenings will then determine who clinches the title of Foosball Champions CEBIT 2018.
