The visit to CEBIT 2016 revealed the importance to strategically prepare and plan the visit. Keeping a focus on short-term and medium-term projects is crucial to fully benefit. So much info and contacts available. It is marvelous to reserve specific time slots for new discoveries for hardware and software. 2 months after the event I still have not finished my post-visit evaluations of innovations immediately productive for me. Okay, I am operating in a fairly limited budget space currently and exploration is costly, certainly in terms of own time invested already. Next time I’ll visit with a “wild-card budget” a percentage of investment budget reserved for exploration.
