Christian Pfeiffer has temporarily taken over management of the "Global Fairs" division of Deutsche Messe AG starting April 1, 2021. He is therefore available as a direct contact to all customers of all trade fairs in the division's portfolio. The 44-year-old has taken over the task from Alexander Wurst (52) in addition to his role as department head of Ligna.

Wurst is set to leave Deutsche Messe AG on September 30, 2021. He has worked there for a total of 19 years. Since 2008, he has headed the "Global Fairs" division with Domotex, Ligna, Interschutz, Labvolution and Didacta. The company has come to an agreement with Wurst on the best terms to terminate his contract. Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe AG, thanks the departing colleague for "his many ideas, his creativity and his can-do mindset."
