Job Description - Event Manager Independent Hotel Amsterdam

A rare and exciting opportunity for an Event Manager who demonstrates strong commercial acumen, loves being part of the community their event serves and has a desire to continue the development of an event at the heart of the hospitality industry. The Event Manager will have the freedom to autonomously drive strategic growth and direction, whilst delivering on all commercial elements and liaising with the event team across all departments in the day to day running of the event. The Independent Hotel Show is a highly focused business event dedicated to hotel owners, general managers, and high-level operators. We provide a platform above and beyond the traditional exhibition for suppliers from across the hotel supply chain to engage and inspire a targeted audience of hoteliers from the Benelux region. There is no other event like it. You will delve deep into the world of boutique and independently-spirited hotels to become a trusted source of industry knowledge and connections. The position requires you to be fully immersed in the industry, enabling you to create relationships and opportunities for all participating in and attending the event. We curate the exhibition, aesthetics, and content with an aim to fulfil and delight the audience. Our visitors attend, not only to source great products from our exhibitors and partners, but to learn, network with their community and enjoy an inspired experience. The Montgomery Events division does not create ‘run of the mill’ trade shows. We’re creative in our approach and challenge the status quo. We’re hard-working, committed, and passionate about our products and the communities we serve. The role will give the applicant the opportunity to be imaginative in the experience they create, whilst immersing themselves in the industry by creating lasting relationships. ROLE PROFILE
