New chairman for the ceramitec advisory board
ceramitec 2018 will take place on the exhibition grounds of Messe München from April 10 to 13. Although these dates still seem to be in the distant future, first preparations for the next ceramitec are already under way.
The previous Chairman of the Advisory Board, Paul Eirich, Managing Partner, Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich, has retired from his offices in the Advisory Board. The Advisory Board unanimously voted that Dr. Jürgen Blumm, Managing Director, NETZSCH Gerätebau GmbH, should take over the body's chairmanship. Dr. Blumm also manages the Ceramic Machinery Specialist Department in the German Engineering Association VDMA, as previously did Paul Eirich, and thus represents both the entrepreneurs' and the Association's side in the Advisory Board. Dr. Blumm is exceptionally well networked in the entire industry. Therefore, he does not only represent one segment but the entire world of ceramics with its diverse facets.
“ceramitec is the industry's major international trade show. The mapping of the entire value-added chain of the ceramic industry is unique. This is the decisive factor which makes ceramitec stand out from all competing events. I am proud of the fact that I assume the office of Chairman of the Advisory Board and have the opportunity to collaborate for the further development of our industry's leading trade show”, states Dr. Blumm.
“As a representative of the interests of the exhibitors, industry representatives and partners, the Advisory Board plays a vital role for ceramitec”, states Gerhard Gerritzen, Deputy Managing Director of Messe München. “I am all the more delighted that with Dr. Jürgen Blumm we have succeeded in winning over an outstanding expert of the trade show and a proven industry expert as Chairman of the Advisory Board. We very much look forward to cooperating with all new members of the Advisory Board.”
