October was the exhibition month for FCS!
Our company was represented with a stand at the it-sa as well as at the Kommunale. From 08th to 10th October, it-sa, Europe’s largest IT security trade fair, opened its doors and enthused with 753 exhibitors from 25 countries. The Kommunale, on the other hand, took place a week later on 16 and 17 October. The most important trade fair for municipal supplies attracted 390 exhibitors to the Nuremberg trade fair on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. These five days of the fair were a complete success.
it-sa – Europe’s leading trade fair for IT security
The it-sa offers one of the most important platforms when it comes to IT security. Since 2009, the it-sa has taken place annually at the exhibition grounds in Nuremberg and, with its diverse and numerous exhibitors spread over four halls, is the IT security trade fair with the highest number of exhibitors in the world. Visitors were able to inform themselves and exchange information on all important IT security topics in around 350 forums and 30 events.
A highlight for us, of course, was the presentation of the IT-Operation Champion Award by techconsult GmbH. With our products Asset.Desk and HEINZELMANN, we have each secured a top position in the categories “Software Asset and License Management” and “IT Service Desk”. The award was presented on 8 October by the managing partner and founder of techconsult, Peter Burghardt.
FCS celebrates premiere at the Kommunale and the Kommunale celebrates its anniversary
Only one week later we were again at the Nuremberg Exhibition Grounds. For FCS this was their first participation in the Kommunale. It is described as a “nationwide meeting place for mayors, heads of authorities and department heads” and is regarded as the most important trade fair for municipal needs. For its 20th anniversary, it attracted 4650 municipal procurement decision-makers to the exhibition grounds in Nuremberg.
The product exhibition was accompanied by numerous specialist events, such as the Congress of the Bavarian Association of Municipalities, the election as a municipal IT professional as well as informative lectures on the latest trends, products and services relating to municipal requirements. Bastian Brand, Head of IT Management Solutions, also gave a concluding lecture on the last day on “Asset Management and User Helpdesk for municipalities and authorities – digital, flexible and scalable”.
We would like to thank everyone who visited us at the trade fairs and are already looking forward to next year’s trade fairs! Stay tuned!
