“We are delighted that Wolfgang Weyand is placing his many years of experience in the cultural and creative sector at the disposal of Messe Frankfurt,” said Biwer.

As CEO of Weyand Entertainment Consulting GmbH, Weyand organised the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Musikmesse Festival with a broad spectrum of concerts of all kinds on behalf of Messe Frankfurt. In the preceding years, he organised the Musikbiz Lounge & Congress as partner of Musikmesse.
