 You will be expected to attend events as and when required (on average, three events per year in USA and Europe).

To qualify… You should be an Event Operations Manager / Event Manager / Event Coordinator / B2B Event Planner / B2B Event Manager or similar looking to build a career within an exciting company. In more detail, your CV should demonstrate:
