About our client

Our client provides a global platform for content-rich conferences and exhibitions, offering unparalleled peer-to-peer networking and career-changing opportunities within the business communities it serves. They offer a strong and diverse portfolio of events across multiple industries, including Animal Health, Consumer, Life Sciences, and Artificial Intelligence, among others.

Expanding from 4 people at launch in 2015, they are now 50 strong and are seeking to add to their successful team. As the portfolios grow and establish themselves, they will require strong leadership to really shape and develop them fully. The AI/Tech portfolio is now in a position where a role exists to head-up from a commercial perspective.

About the role

They are looking for an intelligent, ambitious and proactive sales leader who is looking for an opportunity to take ownership of a product and portfolio to deliver both revenue growth and a market-leading position. You’ll have responsibility for 1.3M sponsorship revenue across multiple events, managing key accounts and delivering new business. You’ll work proactively with the Portfolio Conference Director to influence the direction and shape of the portfolio, with involvement in product development and new revenue streams.

As the portfolio grows organically, there will be the opportunity for you to build your own team around you. AI is a key sector for growth for our client and they see it as their biggest opportunity at present. As such, this role would suit an individual looking to make a significant impact at an early stage in a division’s development – and grow personally as the business grows.
