Twenty years ago, three friends forged the business plan for ITscope during the summer of the century at the local swimming pool. Today, this procurement and sales platform has become an integral part of the IT and telecommunications industry. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are hosting a commemorative trade fair on October 12th in Karlsruhe, and we cordially invite our business partners, customers, and interested individuals to join us.

Keynotess and presentations - glimpses into the future of the ICT industry

The exclusive trade fair promises a diverse and exciting program for its guests. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to numerous presentations from leading experts in the field. Philip Semmelroth will deliver a keynote speech (in German) on "Revenue comes from implementation". Additionally, speakers from 1WorldSync, Gigaset, and Digital Data Communications will provide insights into their strategies (also in German, only 1WorldSync's presentation is held in English). The ITscope team will also reflect on 20 years of software development in the IT and telecommunications industry, sharing valuable experiences regarding the company's realignment and discussing the digital transformation of the sector.
