CeBIT (Centrum der Büro- und Informationstechnik; German for "Centre of Office and Information technology") is the world's largest computer expo. Since 1986 it is held each spring on the exhibition ground in Hannover, Germany, and is often regarded as a barometer of the state of the art in information technology. With an exhibition area of roughly 450,000 m² (5 million ft²), over 6,111 exhibitors and more than 755,000 visitors in 1995, it was larger than COMPUTEX and the no-longer held COMDEX. In recent years both the number of visitors as well as exhibitors dropped significantly; by 2008, the CeBIT expo attendance was at 495,000 . In 2009 it took place from 3 March to 8 March 2009. The CeBIT is organized by Deutsche Messe AG.
