Key Shanghai venue appoints new GM

News this week: The Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) has announced the appointment of a new General Manager, Michael Kruppe, effective 1st February 2014.

Kruppe previously worked in sales and marketing in China in a variety of industries for almost 25 years. He replaces Dr. Hans-Jörg Geduhn, who left SNIEC at the end of January 2014 to pursue other challenges.

As Kruppe takes over from Geduhn, SNIEC faces a new era of heightened competition. A new 400,000 m2 venue is schedule to open in Shanghai’s Hongqiao district in 2015. The venue will be owned by the China Foreign Trade Group (organisers of the Canton Fair) and Shanghai EastBest International.
