Keeping with the tradition, once a year, my friends and I are going to look at the novelties of the IT universe presented at the CEE-2017 exhibition in Kyiv. Rainy weather on October 7-8 did not become an obstacle for the organizers – the ERC company, and the entire event occupied two pavilions of the ExpoPlaza capital center.

Unfortunately, this year I didn’t manage to find overclocker-oriented show-stoppers, nevertheless the exhibition was varied and very interesting, although the obvious surplus of booths of various stores disappointed me a bit. On the other hand, stands of previously absent brands were presented. For example, a fairly large stand of the well-known company Genius.

In 2016, there were only a few cars, in the same year, manufacturers were not embarrassed by the lack of high-tech hybrids in their lines, so they were represented much more widely. For example, the new Volkswagen Arteon and Renault Kadjar. Kia, among other models, decided to show their hybrid – Niro.

Of course, great attention was paid to various drones. The DJi booth was literally filled with people interested in the products. Moreover, both the smallest Mavics and the huge MG-1S, designed for spraying fields, were presented.

Great attention was paid to virtual reality, demonstration stands were very common. In addition, as always, much attention was paid to household appliances, and this year the number of smart home systems presented has increased. There was even a large children’s area with toys and construction sets, although it is difficult to attribute many of them to achievements in the field of technology.

Well, the organizers of the exhibition, the ERC company, decided to diversify their stand by putting on public display a small part of the service center. Visitors looked at the insides of laptops and PCs with interest, and the children followed with enthusiasm the manipulations with the insides of a smartphone, which were performed by one of the ERC employees.
