Announcing Jens Plass as new Project Manager Sales of materials trade fairs
Jens Plass (48) is taking over as the new Project Manager Sales in charge of Reed Exhibitions Deutschland’s materials trade fairs. He succeeds Jessica Kristian, whose focus will shift to marketing the global network of ALUMINIUM events. These changes are aimed at further expanding the range of international sales activities.
The current portfolio of materials trade fairs comprises ALUMINIUM, COMPOSITES EUROPE and IEX Insulation Expo Europe. They take place worldwide in eight locations in Germany, China, India, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates and the United States.
“Jens Plass knows sales, he knows trade fairs and he knows the materials trade. Three areas of competency that perfectly match the job description”, says Reed Exhibitions CEO Hans-Joachim Erbel. Plass, who holds a degree in industrial management and business, worked for eight years in the metal and recyclables industry before devoting twelve years to sales. He joined Reed Exhibitions in 2015, managing the specialised distributor network of the PSI, the promotional products industry’s largest network in Europe.
In his new role, he’ll centrally report to Reed Exhibitions Deutschland sales director Maria Kofidou.
