Super role for a Senior Event Manager (B2B large scale international conferences) with strong speaker logistics & programme management experience!
London based PCO who deliver large scale 4-5 day global conferences for the energy and oil & gas sectors. London office and friendly and fun team.
This is an exciting role for an experienced conference / event manager that will see you reporting to the overall Project Manager of a very large scale international trade conference & exhibition which is held every 3 years for key players within the oil & gas industry.
This role (Head Speaker & Programme Manager) is working solely on one very high profile and logistically complex multi-day international trade conference & exhibition which will be held in China in 2019. It is a mixed role of event management & production management with a particularly strong focus on speaker management (speaker logistics, speaker protocol and general speaker communication/liaison) and programme & agenda management. The role will involve managing a small programme team and will involve spending 3-4 weeks in China in 2019 as you set up and manage the on-site speaker logistics throughout the duration of the event.
You’ll have a strong conferencing / event management background (within a commercial environment) and a minimum of 3 years’ solid experience in large scale B2B conferences, events & exhibitions for international audiences. You’ll have a proven track record of complex speaker logistics, programme management, committee & association liaison, budget management and on-site delivery. You’ll need to be able to juggle multiple work strands, manage a small team of your own as well as being able to work effectively with all the other teams and staff working on a large scale and long lead time project. You’ll be logistics & ops focused, great with people and you must have exceptional attention to detail.
Experience of working on events in China or with delegates / speakers from China is hugely advantageous as is some experience of working within the oil & gas and energy sectors.
You’ll need to enjoy working in a small and friendly company environment (and on long lead projects / events) and ideally you’ll have a dynamic, friendly and enthusiastic personality.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a confident and outgoing events professional with good speaker logistics and international conference and event management experience!
