  • Manage and coordinate suppliers and all event logistics (for example, venue, catering, travel).
  • Liaise with sales and marketing teams to publicise and promote the event.
  • Manage all pre-event planning, organising guest speakers and delegate packs.
  • Coordinate suppliers, handle client queries and troubleshoot on the day of the event to ensure that all runs smoothly and to budget.
