Renate Wittgenstein to take job with Johanna Eberl as deputy.
German jewellery and watch trade show Inhorgenta is undergoing a management shift with Renate Wittgenstein stepping up to lead the team and Johanna Eberl supporting her as deputy exhibition director.
The appointments signal the departure of Armin Wittmann, who has taken a promotion within the show’s organiser Messe München as exhibition director at automation and mechatronics show Automatica.
Wittgenstein has more than 20 years’ experience in the jewellery, fashion and lifestyle industries and has been consulting on Inhorgenta for the past few months prior to being offered the exhibition director role. She has had a number of high profile roles in Germany and from 2000 to 2009 she opened and ran Lebensart, a concept store in Munich that was considered to be one of the top 50 in Europe.
Eberl has been working her way up through the ranks at Ingorgenta and was previously product manager for the show, but before working for Inhorgenta she was a trade journalist writing about jewellery and she trained a as a goldsmith in Spain.
