it-sa and mailingtage now line up with a new director: Frank Venjakob, who has worked for N?rnbergMesse since 2000, takes over the management of the two trade fairs with immediate effect. In future the well-established exhibition teams join forces under his wing. Venjakob has supported trade fairs throughout the world during his over 20-year career in the international exhibition business. Dr. Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann, CEOs of N?rnbergMesse, are agreed: “Frank Venjakob has the exhibition gene”. “We are pleased that we can now use his international expertise more for events in N?rnberg.”

Frank Venjakob, a native of Westphalia, has worked in the exhibition business for 23 years. He entered the exhibition world at Mesago in Stuttgart in 1990 and has been at home in Franconia for 13 years.
