What we are looking for

A key role within the event team, a Senior Conference Producer is a progression on the role of Conference Producer based on experience and a proven success rate that allows for more autonomy and responsibility.  Responsible for creating conference content and agendas as well as project managing an annual portfolio of events. The role requires you to have the ability to research and develop commercially attractive and high quality event programs. You will be comfortable communicating with and gaining support from senior level executives and decision makers during your research and speaker invitation process.

The role of a Senior Conference Producer is to also function as a project leader and content expert for each event. You will have excellent time management skills, be commercially minded, possess strong project coordination ability and have effective communication skills for both written and spoken English. Essentially for this role, you will have the confidence and experience to allow you to work with less direct management supervision and to tackle bigger and more complex projects. This role helps prepare candidates for a career path towards team management and/or overseeing Large Scale Events.

 

Your main tasks will be:
  1. Develop strong, well-researched ACM conference programmes in line with the topic brief provided by the production team leader. Senior Conference Producers will also be trained on how to supplement commercial validation.

  2. Create and build a contact database of prospective speakers, sponsors and event partners.

  3. Complete telephone research with the events target audience to understand the challenges and opportunities present in the market.

  4. Develop the event strategy and to write a high quality conference agenda.

  6. Create the marketing, sponsorship and data build briefs to ensure the project team are all able to effectively support the event’s objectives.

  7. Work closely with Line Manager to ensure agreed KPIs are consistently met. With less direct management, it is crucial for a Senior Producer to effectively report progress and prioritize tasks independently.

  8. Collaborate and communicate with the Project Teams for your assigned conferences, providing updates on the event program and to ensure all team members have the required information to support the event’s success.

  9. Enter, complete, and maintain accurate and timely production data on the CRM, updating clients’ contact details where applicable.

  11. Provide the copy for the event website, brochure and all other relevant content for the marketing campaign.

  12. Run the conference onsite from a programme management perspective (with support from the event operations team and sponsorship team).

  13. Uphold the core values and vision of ACM at all times with a strong, positive and customer orientated approach to clients.
