The Company

Our client organises industry-leading exhibitions across a wide variety of sectors....but they want to do more to help exhibitors and sponsors to trade with relevant buyers at their events. Therefore they have made a multimillion pound investment into a new technology platform designed to help their exhibitors/sponsors to identify relevant visitors (prior to the show), engage with those visitors and pre-arrange meetings. Visitors can also of course target vendors through the platform.

The platform has been tested at an in-person event and was an incredible success. Therefore you will be part of the team which designs platforms for other large scale events.

The Role of Product Manager

Our client is looking for an energetic, commercially minded, and highly focused Product Manager who can play an instrumental role in the creation and roll out of the Hosted Meetings programme - a programme designed to bring people together to do business face-to-face in highly tailored, facilitated meetings. They’re looking for someone with the experience and creativity to build new concepts and programmes and with the ability to continually iterate these projects based on customer feedback.

This role requires someone who can think about Product holistically – not just focusing on digital, but thinking about the entire customer opportunity and experience at all touchpoints.

You should be a quick learner with the ability to juggle multiple stakeholders. You need to be comfortable working with a degree of uncertainty and ambiguity and find joy and real inspiration in creating new outcomes and solutions. You should be resilient, tenacious and have a great eye for detail with solid experience of managing large and complex Projects in the digital Product space.

  • Researching and relationship building with customers (buyers and sponsors) to understand their needs and how they can meet and exceed them through the Hosted Buyer Programme.
  • Conducting analysis and feedback - at each stage of the product build you’re involved in. 
  • Copywriting and marketing creation - you’ll be comfortable writing copy and also working with a lean marketing team (and external suppliers) to create lean, impactful marketing campaigns. You will have excellent written and spoken English and be able to communicate in impactful ways.
