Roland Bleinroth, CEO of Messe Stuttgart, is now a member of the AUMA Executive Board (Association of the German Trade Fair Industry), having been elected to the board in June of this year during its annual general meeting. Also newly elected to the AUMA Executive Board were Wolfram N.

AUMA is the most important association for the German trade fair industry. It currently has 73 members, 38 of whom are associations of the exhibiting and visiting industry, as well as service companies, and 35 trade fair organisers. There are 22 representatives on the AUMA Executive Board, half of whom represent trade fair companies, while the other half are visitor and exhibitor representatives from industry, trade and crafts. All board members are selected for a three year term. The AUMA Executive Board convenes twice a year.

AUMA primarily aims to support medium-sized German businesses as they participate in both national and international exhibitions. As a key industry association, AUMA campaigns for the interests of visitors, exhibitors, organisers and service providers within the trade fair industry. And this both at home and abroad.
