The CeBit show floor has a number of distinguishing characteristics.
- It's absolutely massive, with several square miles of exhibition space
- It's full of absolutely random companies you're never heard of
- It's dominated by several halls full of knock-offs of products in the popular halls
- There are a lot of bizarre products that people think are a good idea.
