Diversified announces new dates for SITS Europe

Diversified Business Communications UK, the organisers of SITS Europe – the major new trade show for the IT Service Management (ITSM) and IT Support industry – has announced that the show launch will be changed to take place in September 2014 for operational reasons.

The event launch, which has been subject to extensive research and which is based on the same model as the highly successful SITS – The Service Desk & IT Support Show in London, has received strong backing from the German and international ITSM industry.  However, due to new developments that require more time to implement, the event organiser Diversified Business Communications UK has decided to announce new dates.

Carsten Holm, managing director of Diversified UK, commented on the decision:  “We have been delighted with the response to the launch of SITS Europe and the high level of interest from exhibitors from both Germany and internationally, with many key players confirmed.  However, due to several new developments, we have decided with our partners at Messe Berlin, that we need more time to implement the plans to ensure the best possible launch for the industry.  Whilst this is disappointing for everyone, taking in the context of the long term and the importance of the launch to the industry, this is without doubt the right thing to do.”
