Are you ambitious and fearless? Do you want to help grow communities and learn how world markets and industries work, within a world-class company that is market-leading for both content and technology? We’re looking for a Conference Producer to join Reuters Events, a fast-growing team within Reuters.
If you want real responsibility, control of a budget from your first day and the opportunity to develop your career quickly, we’re interested in talking to you.
Established in 1990 as FCBI, Reuters Events was acquired by Reuters in 2019. We deliver world-class conferences and content across the globe, and work with industry leaders and visionaries to provide the critical intelligence senior level executives need to make strategic decisions.
Reuters Events brings together Reuters globally trusted brand, scale and editorial excellence aligned with domain expertise. We provide content-led conferences for professionals in highly specialized industry sectors to complement our extensive, in-depth content. Reuters Events exists to deliver the intelligence and foster the relationships that shape strategy and safeguard success at leading companies worldwide.
We are currently recruiting for Conference Producers in the following sectors:
Amongst many others!
About the Role
As a Conference Producer, you will:
Have overall responsibility for the commercial success of major industry conferences including hitting revenue and attendance targets and setting sales strategy for the entire project
You will be researching markets, understanding hot business issues, developing conference agendas, and conducting high profile marketing campaigns
To be absolutely clear, you will be a conference creator not a conference organiser! You won’t be answerable to a client, organising coffee or booking space at hotels
To be our Conference Producer, you will likely:
Be commercially driven first and foremost – you should understand the commercial drivers behind our customers decisions, as our job is to help them make smarter ones!
An interest in business is a must, as is an entrepreneurial spirit, a readiness to take responsibility for your work and, of course, great communication skills
Thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative, high-growth environment and work well in a team as well as being a self-starter
Not need experience in conferences. We look for people who have done interesting things with their time – and who can grow and develop – rather than those who just have good qualifications
Be someone with the ability to identify new and interesting business trends coupled with the drive to develop great events that senior business people can’t afford to miss
Communication and research and analytical skills are essential, along with an entrepreneurial flair and a target-driven mindset
