Passing of Richard Redgen

COMEXPOSIUM Logistics and Safety Director

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Logistics and Safety Director Richard Redgen, who suffered a heart attack on the night of 17 August. Comexposium would like to express its sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Richard Redgen was among the most prominent faces on the trade-show circuit, and was widely recognised for his talent and skill. He established a lasting cross-disciplinary vision for all of the Group's trade shows. Always dedicated and approachable, Richard had a natural aptitude for uniting diverse profiles and backgrounds, and for retaining talent. He was above all warm, friendly and profoundly compassionate.

"Richard was an exceptional colleague. He was loyal, honest and passionate about his work. For more than twenty years, he was an influential figure in the events industry in France. In addition to his dedication, professionalism and team spirit, I will remember his ability to bring people together and his outstanding human qualities, which will be so dearly missed at Comexposium and throughout the trade-show industry." Renaud Hamaide, CEO of Comexposium
