The increasing digitalization of the public sector with a market volume of 50 billion euros represents one of the largest growth markets for providers of hardware, software, platforms and consulting services.

With around 10,000 participants, the Smart Country Convention is the leading German trade fair for public-sector digitalization.

For three days, everything here revolves around the successful digitalization of federal & state governments, local authorities and public-sector companies.

As an exhibitor, you will establish personal contacts with a highly attractive target group and get into discussions as potential contractors for future public tenders, direct contract award procedures and public-private partnerships.

Four key components for an efficient event



Exhibitors present solutions for the public sector in a curated exhibition at the hub27 and in the adjacent exhibition halls.



Three public stages on one level present the latest trends, best practices and talks. The program is supplemented by partner congress formats.



Interactive workshops and accredited seminars offer participants opportunities for personal development and building digital expertise.



The networking areas in the hub27 and the side events are ideal places to make new contacts and meet public-sector decision-makers.

The Smart Country Convention is based on closely interconnected Congress, Workshops, Expo and Networking segments. The curated exhibition area in the hub27 creates a unique event experience. On two levels specially designed for the event, our partners can present a comprehensive showcase of digital solutions, engage directly with trade visitors on one of the three interactive stages, and spotlight your brand. The hub27 also offers you options to use specially-equipped workshop and congress spaces.

Market leaders and medium-sized companies will present their products and services at exhibition stands located in the halls adjacent to the hub27 at the south end of the exhibition grounds. In addition, there will be start-up areas and showcases presented by public administrations, authorities and companies.

Networking areas in the hub27 and the side events offer you opportunities to build customer contacts. Centrally located, the Berlin ExpoCenter City is close to hotels in all categories – another good reason to exhibit at the Smart Country Convention.
