Managing your own sponsorship campaigns, you'll need to be a real go getter with a great entrepreneurial spirit, enjoy interacting with people and ready to go the extra mile for event sponsors and exhibitors.

The conferences areas range from social media, to digital marketing, to food and drink, to retail, to finance, to advertising, to charities, to PR and many more exciting and varied industries and topic areas - you will never be bored or stuck in the same old industry!
