The CeBIT CMS Garden

Last year the OpenSource CMS communities in Germany started a common presentation of all major OpenSource CMS systems in the OpenSource area of the upcoming CeBit, the world's largest trade fair showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions. The fair has a big target audience throughout the world.

OpenSource is a Professional Solution

The project was ignited by people from the Drupal community to promote OpenSource CMS Systems as a professional solution and first class competitors in the market. We know them from the Linux Tag in Berlin and they love their system as well.

Now the Plone community is proud to present Plone 4 and the current ongoing roadmap in this eye catching environment.

Live Demos

Live presentation of CMS systems having 14 desks where you can get hands on the look and feel of the participating systems during guided insight supported by volunteers.

Comparison of CMS Booklet

In a 132 page booklet the community teams are providing background information related to the CMS systems they provide and adverts by service companies give an idea how diverse and vibrant these communities are. Together with a register of service companies and community organisations the booklet makes it easy to compare systems and get in touch with the Open Source ecosystems.

Plone has two 3-page articles, in both German and English with infographics and a good insight into the features making Plone unique. The content is a reduced version of the German Plone brochure introduced by the DZUG team Armin Stross-Radschinski & Jan Ulrich Hasecke two years ago. The Booklet will be available as PDF soon after the fair.

Making Plone more visible

The goal of the current marketing initiative that comes with the relaunch of and the launch of the website is giving strong messages to show that Plone the product and community are more alive then ever before.

CMS-Garden-Booklet Ad

The Plone Foundation is engaged together with the Python Software Verband (a successor of the former DZUG). The Plone Foundation is cofunding the CMS Garden with a sponsoring ad that covers some of the new main messages:

"Plone – The CMS giving you peace of mind"

Is the main slogan of the Plone Foundation's advert.


Note: This event is not to be confused with the Plone Open Garden a few weeks later in Sorrento, Italy. The name CMS Garden was chosen outside of the Plone community.
