State planning and economic development officials are looking for five companies interested in showing their wares at the Hanover Fair CeBIT in West Germany March 8-15, 1989.Anna Cordes, a program analyst in the Utah Office of Planning and Budget and project coordinator, said the state will share the costs of the booth at the fair and provide support services to the five companies.

She said this is an excellent opportunity for companies with small budgets to exhibit their office information, telecommunication technology, computer hardware and software and data processing equipment in a fair that last year attracted more than 420,000 people.

CeBIT is a German acronym for World Center for Office, Information and Telecommunication Technology.

Cordes said the five companies should be interested in displaying their products for direct sale or finding an agent to distribute their wares.

The project of recruiting the five companies is sponsored by the Office of Planning and Budget and the Utah International Business Development Office. Cordes can be contacted at 538-1548.
