  Koelnmesse appoints Bernd Sanden as Director of LivingKitchen  
On September 1, Bernd Sanden will take over as Director of LivingKitchen, having previously been a Junior Product Manager for ZOW. With Sanden at the helm, Koelnmesse is placing responsibility for the international kitchen show in experienced hands.

Bernd Sanden, a graduate of the University of Cologne, where he studied Business Administration, can draw on ten years of experience at Koelnmesse and was involved in the development of LivingKitchen. In his previous role as Sales Manager, he was responsible for the three imm cologne segments Comfort, Prime and Pure. In recent years, he has also been heavily involved in additional international projects in countries including Russia, the USA and China.

Now beginning the preparations for LivingKitchen 2019, Bernd Sanden said, “I am delighted to take on the task of overseeing and developing this event, which is such an important and unique platform in the kitchen world. Alongside his great interest in foreign cultures, the 38-year-old is fascinated by modern technology and sees parallels here with his new position: “The smart home, futuristic kitchens and intelligent kitchen robots – I am sure that my interest in the rapid changes in technology will be put to good use in this new role.”

Koelnmesse thanks the former Director of LivingKitchen, Eike Fuchs, for his excellent work and wishes him all the best for the future.
