Part of CeBIT Opening Ceremony

Last week our project formed part of the CeBIT (world’s foremost tradeshow for the digital industry, took place in Hannover, Germany) opening ceremony. During this opening ceremony the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, Spanish Prime Minister, gave a short speech. Bill McDermott (Co-Chief Executive Officer SAP) was on stage and presented our project as part of the CeBIT topic “Connected Worlds”. He presented our use case and showed a small video about our work. The result have been many articles writing about our project and especially the Spaza Shop during the opening ceremony (e.g. IT Web).

You can have a look at the opening ceremony here. The 2 sections of interest of the opening ceremony are at 26:00 to 29:00 and 1:15:00 to 1:21:30

CeBIT Opening Ceremony with Christina from Kgautswane

During the CeBIT week we’ve had four people of the Kgautswane community visiting us. Most prominent was Christina who was on stage during the openind ceremony and thus became quite famous due to the often used picture with Merkel, Zapatero and McDermot touching a globe with their hands. The four people had meetings with various organizations here in Germany and thus we’ve travelled quite a lot. This was a very interesting trip for them since most of them have never been to europe before, never been flying in a plane and many more “first time experiences”.
