Effective April 1, 2019, Bastian Mingers begins as new Global Head for Wine & Spirits and Director of ProWein at Messe Düsseldorf in Germany. The 35-year-old will take over the position from Marius Berlemann, who in turn will become the General Manager of Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai Ltd. The move allows Berlemann to remain closely involved with ProWine China and ProWine Asia/Hong Kong while promoting further expansion by Messe Düsseldorf from directly within China. Mingers has a broad range of experience in managing complex projects, strategic development and implementation. Already familiar with ProWein, he served as a Senior Project Manager from 2011 to 2015. ProWein in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the largest trade fair for the international wine and spirits industry.
