Germany’s first dedicated ITSM showcase: SITS Europe

Home » Events, Industry News » Germany’s first dedicated ITSM showcase: SITS Europe

A new German trade show for the IT Service Management (ITSM) market and tech support industry has been announced by Diversified Business Communications UK, organiser of SITS, the firm behind the Service Desk & IT Support Show in London.

SITS Europe is the latest addition to Diversified UK’s trade show portfolio. The event will take place on 24-25 September 2013 in Berlin and the organisers describe it as the “first dedicated industry showcase” for Germany’s ITSM sector.

Service desk Mecca

The show will be run in partnership with Messe Berlin in Germany and modelled on Diversified’s SITS event in the UK, which has been running for 19 years and attracts over 4,500 service desk and business professionals annually.

“Germany is the largest economy in Europe and has one of the largest markets for the ITSM sector in the world.  Yet incredibly, until now, it hasn’t had a dedicated trade show for this ‘mission-critical’ industry,” said  Laura Venables, event manager of SITS UK.

“The driving force behind the idea has come directly from the industry and it has been tailored specifically to meet the needs of the German market.  The organisations we’ve been working with for the past six months all agree there is a huge gap for an effective event like this, which is much more business-focused than the more traditional conference models.”

Deep learning resources

Positioned as a highly focussed event providing businesses of all sizes with the opportunity to source new technology, services, suppliers and solutions, SITS Europe will also provide its visitors with an unrivalled opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s leading experts and subject specialists in a first class conference and education programme, consisting of keynotes, seminars, workshops and round table discussions.

“We are very excited to be working with Diversified UK to create a strong task force using both of our expertise to provide the European ITSM market with a high profile market place,” said Dr. Christian Göke, chief operating officer of Messe Berlin GmbH.

    To my knowledge, this event never took place, right? Any updates if there are plans to host them this year? I am updating my events calendar and looking out for all ITSM events.
