In Hall 16 of the exhibition grounds in Hanover, a platform for the unexpected, the surprising and the new fascinates its guests. The 50 finalists of the CODE_n Contest present their extraordinary business concepts to investors, the international press, and thousands of visitors over the course of five days, across an area measuring 5,000 square meters in a dedicated exhibition hall.

But there’s even more: A first-class conference program, panel shows and concerts round off the CODE_n activities at CeBIT, making CODE_n one of Europe’s leading events for startups.

Each year, renowned international artists break traditional rules of trade show design, staging the pioneering spirit of CODE_n in a truly exceptional way.

Following their breathtaking big data installation at CeBIT 2014, internationally renowned designers Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram will again take on the design of Hall 16 at CeBIT 2015. They will develop an impressive architectural approach that brings this year’s theme “Into the Internet of Things” to life.

According to FORM Magazine, Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram are “the vanguard of the next generation of digital designers.” Kram worked at the famous Massachusetts Institute of Technology before going to Silicon Valley; Weisshaar studied at the Royal College of Art. Their work can be found in the Museum of Modern Art in New York as well as in the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

At CeBIT, CODE_n's exhibition area features a first-rate conference program throughout the entire week. In addition to star-studded speakers from business, politics and research, the CODE_n startups introduce their promising business solutions on stage. One of the program's highlights each year is the CODE_n Award Show.

More details on the upcoming conference program will be announced soon.
