Why you should definitely be there in 2022!

With the advancing digital transformation, the requirements placed on the security of data and systems are growing. The it-sa Expo&Congress sees itself as a network for sector-specific IT security solutions and a platform by experts for experts. By covering current security issues, the it-sa Expo&Congress is the trend barometer for the entire IT security market.

5 reasons why you should visit the it-sa Expo&Congress from 25 - 27 Oktober 2022 in Nuremberg:

1. Europa's largest range of exhibitors

With more than 750 exhibitors, it-sa 2019 continued the success story of the largest IT security trade fair in Europe. After the Corona-related suspension, 273 exhibitors and almost 5,200 visitors met at last year's Expo&Congress. Renowned IT security providers, distributors and start-ups will join you in taking on the challenge of protecting the most important assets of the digitalised world - our data, processes and IT structures.

2. Knowledge-sharing and networking

For you as a visitor to it-sa Expo&Congress, the trade fair events and supporting programme are the perfect setting for building up know-how, exchanging experiences and networking with the Who's Who of the industry. 98% of visitors to it-sa 2021 were satisfied with the information and contact opportunities at the stands and 95% were satisfied with their visit to it-sa Expo&Congress overall.

3. Start-up special area

The it-sa Expo&Congress has always offered IT security start-ups a special area for new, creative approaches to more IT security. Together with the ATHENE Startup Award UP22@it-sa for the best cyber security start-up in the DACH region, we would like to firmly integrate fresh, innovative ideas and the minds behind them into the IT security community. Meet the nominees for the award at the pitch event on the itsa365 dialogue platform and the winners and other start-ups at the special start-up area.

4. Knowledge edge through open forums

Expert lectures on current security topics from the fields of technology and management will be held throughout the trade fair. The lectures in the "it-sa insights" series of topics provide product-neutral current insights into industries, trends, legal issues and special topics. One of the forums is specially reserved for presentations in English. This is also where the popular Special Key Note with a special guest speaker takes place, which always receives special attention on the last day.

5. Improve your specialist knowledge at Congress@it-sa

The accompanying congress programme Congress@it-sa also offers intensive knowledge transfer and in-depth technical discussion with numerous, predominantly cost-free, topic blocks from associations, industry associations and exhibitors and underlines the relevance of it-sa as a dialogue platform for cyber security.
