The Hungarian Innovation TechShow (HITS) is Hungary’s top-tier exhibition of ICT innovation since 2009, each year showcasing the country’s latest and most promising digital products and services to an audience of professionals, investors, the representatives of the media, and the general public. Established in 2009 and organized annually by the Hungarian Mobility and Multimedia Cluster, HITS’s key objective has been to provide a unique opportunity for the Hungarian ICT innovation ecosystem to show its best through live interactive demos. The majority of the exhibitors are startups, some are more established companies.
HITS’s exhibitors are each year selected through a competitive open call by an independent panel of experts, and each exhibitor gets a chance to show and pitch their product/service at the event. In addition, HITS gives space to a Business Incubator Show as well, whereby Hungary’s most successful business incubators, accelerators, and academic tech transfer offices show their most recent projects of pride.
Dubbed as “Hungary’s CES” by the media, HITS is a good opportunity to see what’s cooking in the country’s hi-tech community and interact with the cream of the Hungarian digital industry and the geek scene.
Since 2012, HITS aspires to be an international event. Besides announcing the open call for exhibitors internationally, it is achieving this by inviting high-impact international speakers, and offering an attractive bilingual environment for international visitors, investors and exhibitors alike.
Magyar Telekom has been the top-level sponsor of HITS since its inception.
