NürnbergConvention: Alexandra Költsch to lead Event Acquisition

2. May 2024
  • Destination Nuremberg: Acquisition and marketing staffed with new department head


As of 1 May 2024, the new Head of Acquisition & Marketing Guest Events at NürnbergMesse is Alexandra Költsch, 44, who has been a member of our team since 2007. Her most recent post was Senior Manager in the International Acquisition & Marketing Department. Her new position had been filled on an interim basis by Jan Gerrit Ebener, Head of Guest Events & Congresses. Pleased that this important position has now been filled by someone from within the company’s own ranks, he emphasised the great potential and creativity of the new department head: “Alexandra Költsch has the network, the experience, and the creativity to gear our event acquisition efforts to the future demands of customers in a modern way, entirely in the spirit of our values triad: uncomplicated, unfazed, unexpected.”

Nuremberg, 2 May 2024 – Alexandra Költsch has learned the event business from different angles: in an agency, through work on stand construction, and as a member of a NürnbergMesse project team when she was just a student. She has guided and helped shape NürnbergConvention, a marketing collaboration alliance between NürnbergMesse and CTZ Congress- und Tourismus-Zentrale Nürnberg, from the beginning in 2011, formerly with a focus on marketing and press work. “I’m very pleased to return to event acquisition in May, where I can be even closer to customers”, said the committed team player: “I am not alone in my new job, but will be working with highly skilled colleagues, a well-rehearsed team in which everyone knows exactly what they’re supposed to do. I can’t wait to get started!”
