Christian Hruschka has been appointed senior project manager for boot Düsseldorf, responsible for the acquisition and support of exhibitors from the accessories, diving, and tourism sectors (halls 10-13).
After seven successful years, Lena Beckmann, his predecessor, has left the boot team to take a sabbatical and explore the south of Europe.
“I’m really looking forward to my new tasks in the boot team,” said Christian. “Watersports are simply fascinating, and I’m a passionate sailor myself.”
Also new on board is Svenja Zimmermann who is a junior project manager in exhibitor support and in addition, will be the contact person for the ‘Galeria boot’ with maritime art in hall 7.
Arne von Heimendahl will retain his responsibility for the boats and yachts exhibition area in halls 1-6, 15, and 16. Caroline Mühl is in charge of trend sports and canoeing and kayaking in halls 17 and 14, and Lara Hannappel is responsible for the special shows and action stages.
boot director, Petros Michelidakis, said: “I am delighted to have these two new colleagues on board. They know the trade fair business and will drive boot forward with passion in the future. With the commitment of our entire team, I am confident that boot 2024 will be a great success once again.”
