Annick Horter to take over as project manager of bautec

Strategic reorganisation of the Life Sciences division – bautec and belektro strengthen synergies – Esther Piehl to become project manager of Bazaar Berlin

After two successful editions managing bautec, Esther Piehl is due to hand over to Annick Horter and become project manager of Bazaar Berlin.

Annick Horter has been with Messe Berlin since 2003 and in 2015 became project manager of belektro – the Trade Fair for Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Lighting. The 35 year-old studied Business Economics majoring in Trade Fair, Congress and Event Management at the Ravensburg Career Academy (now DHBW Baden-Württemberg), and graduated with a business management degree (BA).

”Placing bautec and belektro under combined management will bring the two trade fairs even closer together. Esther Piehl has achieved a lot for bautec in recent years. Establishing even closer links between bautec and belektro will take us one step further. We hope that this strategic reorganisation will create all kinds of synergies“, said Karel Heijs, director of Life Sciences at Messe Berlin. ”In Annick Horter we have a colleague in our ranks who is eminently capable of successfully developing both fairs.“

Annick Horter will be officially appointed on 7 November at a meeting of the advisory council of bautec. Esther Piehl will continue to assist her successor until the fair takes place from 18 to 21 February 2020 in Berlin.
