Fresh produce trade fair Fruit Logistica has named Kai Mangelberger, a veteran of the trade fair and event industry, as its new director.
Mangelberger, who was previously the exhibition’s acting director and, for the past six years, deputy director of transport technology fair InnoTrans, takes over from the event’s senior product manager Madlen Miserius.
Miserius said she was proud of her 12 successful years at Fruit Logistica and was looking forward to new tasks and challenges at Messe Berlin.
"We want to be the constant for the fresh fruit industry – an industry that frequently has to quickly and flexibly adapt to changes," Mangelberger commented.
"We answer the questions that these changes pose by bringing together industry participants from every link in the value added chain, by anticipating future topics in our programme, and by offering a platform for innovations that help keep the fresh produce industry sustainable. I look forward to pursuing these goals together with my team."
Fruit Logistica, the world’s leading fruit and vegetable industry trade fair, takes place as a physical event in Berlin on 9-11 February 2022.
