Thorsten Böhm is the new Director of the NürnbergConvention Center

The managing directors of NürnbergMesse, Dr. Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann, have named Thorsten Böhm as the new Director of the NürnbergConvention Center. Böhm succeeds Friedhelm Lenz, who has retired after almost thirty years of managing the Center.

Thorsten Böhm (38) knows the event business at the NürnbergConvention Center like nobody else. He has, after all, been a member of the team for twelve years. As a Senior Advisor he was previously responsible for events such as ConSozial, the largest congress and exhibition for the social market in the German-speaking world, or Kommunale, the leading German exhibition and congress for municipal requirements. Thorsten Böhm, an Event Management and Business Administration graduate, worked closely with Friedhelm Lenz, who managed the NürnbergMesse congress division for over 27 years.

The NürnbergConvention Center comprises the NCC West, NCC Mitte and NCC Ost convention centres and provides space for over 14,000 people. The decentralised location of the centre ensures that the exhibition halls are always directly connected and can therefore be used together with the centres. "The convention centres can be used both on their own and in connection with the halls. Event ensembles that are independent of one another can thus take place according to event and customer requirements", says Thorsten Böhm, describing the advantages of the NürnbergConvention Center.

Major prestigious congresses take place at the NürnbergConvention Center, for example the International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians (Internationaler Hörgeräteakustiker-Kongress), the International Congress of German Ophthalmic Surgeons (Internationaler Kongress der deutschen Ophthalmochirurgen) and the DOAG Conference & Exhibition. These congresses often take place with accompanying exhibitions and congress trade fairs (ConSozial and Kommunale) as well as corporate events. It is particularly suitable for events with over 1,000 participants.
