Nuremberg organiser AFAG takes over Munich-based NETCOMM business

The private Nuremberg-based trade fair organiser AFAG is to take over the business of Munich trade fair organiser NETCOMM as of 1 July. The NETCOMM portfolio includes the Munich SecurityExpo, the Munich Human Resources Fair and the Sales Marketing Fair.

The former managing directors and shareholders of NETCOMM GmbH, Walter and Renate Richter, are retiring fro the business and will hand over to AFAG Messen und Ausstellungen GmbH under new MDs Henning and Thilo Könicke.

NETCOMM’s events will continue under the new management in Munich.

Henning and Thilo Könicke said: “We are pleased to be able to continue and further develop the three NETCOMM trade fairs, which are already well established in the market. AFAG has a tradition of more than 70 years as a trade fair organiser, and we would now like to bring this experience to the NETCOMM events. In addition, there are various points of contact between the AFAG and NETCOMM events in terms of content and concept, from which both sides can benefit. We thank the Richter family for their trust in placing the future of their company in our hands."

“We are pleased to have found competent and committed successors for the three trade fairs  in AFAG and are certain that their many years of trade fair expertise will enable the three events to be successfully developed and expanded,” said Walter and Renate Richter.
