The Company:

An award winning international B2B events business seeks a Business Development Manager to take responsibility for driving new business revenues across one of their leading exhibitions. Our client delivers outstanding B2B exhibitions/conferences all over the world and offers huge potential for career development and high earnings. Each year our client brings over 250,000 senior decision makers together to discover, learn, network and trade at their shows around the world.

The role of Business Development Manager

As a Business Development Manager you will take ownership of driving new business for a leading b2b exhibition, selling all manner of opportunity from exhibition space and speaking slots, to 1-2-1 meetings, advertising and branding. 

The event portfolio sits across the environmental sector and whilst you will be primarily working on the main expo, there are 2 co-located smaller events which share visitors, and as such you would also be selling into these where relevant. 

Whilst you will source some of your own, you will have a supportive infrastructure which delivers you a large volume of potential leads to then go after. It is a fast paced environment and since you will be focusing 100% on new business, you will be both resilient and driven. The opportunity to be promoted into other roles across the business is highly realistic after 12 months.

Requirements for the role of Business Development Manager

  • Stable career history
  • Minimum of 3 years sales experience (you do not need to have exhibition sales experience)
  • Strong at new business development
  • High work ethic
  • Exhibition/sponsorship sales experience is desirable
  • Target driven and hungry for success

If you think that you could be the Business Development Manager that we are looking for, please send us your CV and a consultant will be in touch.
