Frankfurt, Germany – She put Light + Building on track to becoming the world’s leading trade fair for the sector. Now, he will lead the trade fair for lighting and building-services technology into the future. At the beginning of July 2020, Maria Hasselman hands over the management of Light + Building to Johannes Möller.

From now on, Johannes Möller is responsible for the future success of Light + Building. The graduate trade-fair, congress and event manager gathered sales experience with the Prolight + Sound trade fair for many years before spending four years as personal assistant to the President and Chief Executive Officer of Messe Frankfurt. Subsequently, in 2017, he was appointed Director of the Brand Management and Development Team in the company’s Technology Business Unit.

Johannes Möller is clear about the challenges facing the lighting and building-services sector. “My aim is to add to the experience of the fair for all concerned, including through the use of digital channels.

Accordingly, the portfolio will soon be supplemented by a variety of formats, such as podcasts, online product and trend shows, as well as internet discussion forums,” said Möller. “At the same time, there can be no doubt that personal encounters are irreplaceable. This applies not only to confidence-building measures and product quality analysis but also, of course, to networking and the exchange of ideas and information. I am looking forward to achieving this aim by continuing the close working relationship with our cooperation partners, the ZVEI and ZVEH associations,” added Möller.
