  • Research and build a database of sales prospects (sell-side delegates) for each conference with the support of in-house teams.

  • Identify new types of target audiences and keep up to speed with new entrants to the relevant markets/products.
  • Identifying upselling opportunities for exhibition and sponsorship sales.
  • Assisting in key client management and relationship building.

In return - the opportunity to deal directly with high-level executives and decision makers at a very early stage of your career; responsibility from the start and a key role in developing and growing delegate revenue.
