Successful start for InterBev Beverage
NürnbergMesse North America is satisfied with InterBev Beverage, which was staged for the first time this year. The trade show for the U.S. beverage industry with its special focus on the retail market took place in Chicago from June 11–12, 2014. Together with concurrent trade shows FMI Connect, United Fresh, PMMI-PACK EXPO, and U.S. Food Showcase, it welcomed approximately 12,000 visitors. In March 2014, NürnbergMesse North America had announced that it would split the InterBev trade show into two trade shows, one targeting the retail trade and one for the beverage industry. “InterBev Beverage 2014 marked a successful start for the restructured events,” reports Andrea Paulinelli, the Trade Show Director for InterBev. The first InterBev Process, the sister trade show, is scheduled to take place in Chicago in 2015.

NürnbergMesse celebrates 40th birthday: no sign of midlife crisis
The NürnbergMesse success story continues in its 40th anniversary year too. After 193 million euros in 2013, the highest revenue for an odd year in the history of the company, there is already more news of success in the first half of 2014: The existing event formats are developing more positively than the average for the sector and the global orientation is gaining more and more importance. For the two CEOs, Dr. Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann, this confirms the course adopted by the company, which foresees strengthening the Nürnberg location and at the same time continuing to drive the successful internationalization strategy: “40 years of NürnbergMesse are a reason for celebrating but also an obligation to continue the success story,” according to the two CEOs.
