ZELLCHEMING-Expo: Valmet GmbH becomes a member of the Exhibitor Advisory Board

Jan 31, 2019

A new member has joined the Exhibitor Advisory Board of the ZELLCHEMING-Expo: Valmet GmbH. The aim is to continually adapt the Expo to the needs and current trends of the fast-paced paper and pulp industry.

The Exhibitor Advisory Board affiliated to the ZELLCHEMING-Expo was called into existence in 2015. The Board advises the organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH on the strategy and conceptual development of the ZELLCHEMING-Expo representing exhibitors and their needs. The Expo is therefore proud to welcome the renowned player Valmet GmbH in the industry to the Board with immediate effect.

The ZELLCHEMING-Expo benefits in particular from the cooperation with the companies and their close network within the industry. Manfred Eberhardt, Vice President Sales Central Europe North at Valmet GmbH, also emphasizes this aspect: "We value the ZELLCHEMING-Expo as an important meeting place for the paper and pulp industry in Central Europe. Valmet has been based in Germany in several locations for more than 40 years and has been regularly represented at the ZELLCHEMING-Expo. That is why we are delighted to be appointed to the Exhibitors' Advisory Board, especially as we are represented with our extensive portfolio of Valmet equipment in almost all paper and pulp factories and can contribute to the positive further development of the ZELLCHEMING-Expo and make it fit for the future with the aid of our network in the industry ".

Petra Hanke, Managing Director of the ZELLCHEMING Association, also sees the expansion of the Advisory Board as a benefit for the event, as it continues to act as an impetus for new trends: "We are delighted to welcome such a renowned company to the Exhibitors' Advisory Board. Our experience over the past few years has shown how enormously important it is to get many new ideas off the ground together with the exhibitors".
