Press releases about it-sa
The eighth round of it-sa closed with three new records, when 489* exhibitors (428 in 2015) came together with 10,181 trade visitors (9,015 in 2015) at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg. For the organisers, this represented an increase in exhibitors of no less than 14 percent as well as 13 percent more visitors over the previous year. A third record was the 15 percent increase in display area for Europe's biggest IT security trade fair, which occupied all of Hall 12. Around 230 presentations in three open forums, special display areas and an expanded Congress@it-sa programme with 15 lecture series provided wide-ranging information on IT security. One of the highlights of the event was the special keynote speech by Austrian lawyer and data privacy activist Maximilian Schrems. In 2017 it-sa will move to Halls 9 and 10 to allow room for further growth.
