UFI's European members have elected Albert Arp (Royal Dutch Jaarbeurs, The Netherlands) as the new chair for the association's European Chapter. David Boon (Brussels Expo, Belgium) will remain the 1st vice chair, Antonio Bruzzone (BolognaFiere, Italy) continues as vice chair. The members co-opted Bernd Aufderheide (Hamburg Messe, Germany) into the vice chair position that was previously held by Arp. As Chapter chair, Arp will also serve on the UFI executive committee.
The re-election had become necessary as the previous chair, Andreas Gruchow, is no longer with Deutsche Messe (Germany). (ufi)
