New Project Director: Mariella Riedel Takes Over Management of PaintExpo

As of now, Mariella Riedel is taking over the management of PaintExpo - World's Leading Trade Fair for Industrial Coating Technology as new Project Director. In this function, she succeeds Ivonne Simons, who is dedicated to another project at Leipziger Messe.

Mariella Riedel has been working at Leipziger Messe since 2012 and is responsible for several trade fairs which - like PaintExpo - are characterised by a clear target group focus and a tailor-made concept. Her area of responsibility includes efa:ON - Trade Fair for Electrical Engineering, Building Systems and Light, netze:ON - Trade Fair for Energy Technology, Distribution and Broadband Networks as well as denkmal - Europe's Leading Trade Fair for Conservation, Restoration and Old Building Renovation, and MUTEC - International Trade Fair for Museum and Exhibition Technology.

We wish Mariella Riedel every success as Project Director of PaintExpo and would like to express our sincere thanks to Ivonne Simons for her very good work for the world's leading trade fair for industrial coating technology, which successfully took off again under her leadership in 2022 - after the pandemic-related break.

In addition to Project Director Mariella Riedel, Project Manager Yvonne Gneiting and Konstantin Daum, Project Manager International, as well as Anne-Kathrin Voigt as the responsible Project Assistant are of course still available as contact persons. You can find all contact details here .
