Katja Stolle takes over as electronica Exhibition Director
The world’s leading electronics trade fair and conference has a new Exhibition Director. Katja Stolle, who has been with Messe München over 13 years, is now leading the project team. The next electronica will be held in Munich from November 10 to 13, 2020.
An experienced trade-fair expert is now leading electronica: Katja Stolle joined Messe München in 2006 after earning a degree in humanities. In 2012, she took over the exhibition management of analytica – the leading international trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis and biotechnology. Over the past six years, Katja Stolle has led the LASER World of PHOTONICS and the World of Photonics Congress. She was primarily responsible for the strategic and conceptual enhancement of the world’s leading trade fair for photonic components, systems and applications.
Katja Stolle reports to Ms. Barbara Müller, who will continue to oversee the global electronic network at Messe München in her position as Exhibition Group Director.
Falk Senger, Managing Director of Messe München, is looking forward to the future collaboration: “I believe that Katja Stolle will be able to draw on her many years of experience and her specialist knowledge to generate new momentum for electronica. She has demonstrated her ability to organize major trade fairs numerous times in the past. I wish her much success for the tasks ahead.”
The new position represents both a challenge and motivation for Katja Stolle: “electronica is without a doubt the world’s most important meeting place for the electronics industry. For this reason, I am really excited about the opportunity to enhance the event with the help of my team and expand the internationally leading role that electronica plays.”
