Hannover Fairs Australia is a subsidiary of the Deutsche Messe, one of the world’s largest exhibition and trade fair companies.

Mr Stockbridge will be responsible for organising events in Australia such as CeBIT Australia, CeMAT Australia and the GovInnovate Summit.

He also assumes responsibility for introducing Australian exhibitors and visitors to Deutsche Messe’s worldwide event portfolio as well as the further growth plans of Deutsche Messe AG in Australia.

Before joining Deutsche Messe, Mr Stockbridge was Managing Director at Informa Exhibitions Australia, a subsidiary of the London based international media group.

He also served as Sales Director for IIR Telecoms & Technology, a global conference organiser serving the telecommunications industry.

“We are pleased that with Harvey Stockbridge we have an experienced event industry and trade fair professional on board,” said Dr Andreas Gruchow, Member of the Managing Board, Deutsche Messe AG.
