“However, in Benedikt Binder-Krieglstein we are very fortunate to have a successor with vision and plenty of drive who has already made a significant contribution to the company’s continued development in his role as operative CEO at Reed Messe Salzburg and Reed Messe Wien,” he concluded.
The corporate group in Austria consists of Reed Exhibitions Messe Salzburg, Reed Exhibitions Messe Wien, and the event construction and equipment providers STANDout.
