NurnbergMesse: Concentrated expertise in digital trade fairs


NürnbergMesse: Benedikt Weyerer is appointed new Exhibition Director for embedded world, iSEnEC and Net.Law.S effective 1 October 2017

For years, digitalisation and the Internet of Things (IoT) have been undergoing dramatic growth. And the NürnbergMesse events which focus on these thematic areas have enjoyed equally positive development. As of 1 October 2017, this specific trade fair expertise will be concentrated in one team, as Benedikt Weyerer, 37, assumes the role of Exhibition Director of embedded world, iSEnEC and Net.Law.S. For Dr Roland Fleck, CEO of NürnbergMesse Group, it's a logical step: "Digitalisation is forcing rapid change in industry and society. As a company we are offering the right kind of answers that also come in the person of our Exhibition Director."

Benedikt Weyerer, who is originally from Chiemgau in Bavaria, already has extensive expertise in organising events: Through his work on the embedded world Exhibition&Conference he has been able to acquire firsthand trade fair experience in the “engine room” for the digitalisation of industry. Without embedded system technologies, for example, the Internet of Things or autonomous driving would not even be possible. This knowledge is necessary to understand the importance of legal bases and ethical standards in this context. These are issues that are also addressed within the scope of the Net.Law.S conference, which Weyerer developed along with two other NürnbergMesse colleagues. Weyerer’s event profile is rounded off by iSEnEC, an event whose interdisciplinary approach unites key players from industry and the scientific community to discuss the issue of renewable energies.
