Change of project leadership for INTERFORST

October 02, 2020

Martina Ehrnsperger, the long-time Exhibition Director of INTERFORST, has decided to take a new direction in her life and left her position at Messe München on September 30, 2020. Ehrnsperger had been a member of the INTERFORST team since she joined Messe München in 1996. She became Exhibition Director of the leading international trade fair for forestry and forest technology in 2012.


In this position, Martina Ehrnsperger enhanced the concept behind INTERFORST and developed a large network in the industry. She focused in particular on creating a trusting relationship with all INTERFORST exhibitors and partners. For family-related reasons, the native of the Upper Franconian region in northern Bavaria has decided to shift the focus of her professional and private lives back to her homeland. Reinhard Pfeiffer, the Managing Director who oversees INTERFORST, and Georg Moller, the Executive Director for the trade fair, wished Martina Ehrnsperger all the best in the future.

Leadership of the INTERFORST project will be assumed by Petra Westphal, who has been responsible for INTERFORST since 2011, in a co-director role. The experienced trade-fair organizer Westphal will work with Jasmin Regiert, a well-known individual in the industry, and Nicole van Paassen, who joined the INTERFORST team on September 1, to create optimal conditions for the leading trade fair INTERFORST.
