The Next Web is a fast-growing tech media company with a highly influential media platform, unparalleled conferences and a team that's building awesome new technology products and workspaces.
75% preparation, 25% hustle
Being an event manager is like being a mini-CEO; you’ll ensure that your portfolio of events are executed from beginning to end by tapping into the greater marketing, sourcing, development and content resources of your colleagues at The Next Web. You’ll be part of the Events team and will operate across teams to execute events ranging from 50 to 15.000 attendees.
What we are looking for is an excellent project manager capable of coordinating multiple events, but who can also think on his or her feet and execute fast. You will oversee project management for TNW Conference, but also many smaller technology event formats that we run throughout the year under the banner of TNW (The Next Web) or TNW X (our corporate arm). These can include ecosystem dinners, startup competitions and networking events, often held at our co-working space TQ.
You will work side-by-side and under the supervision of the Director of Events as a liaison between external stakeholders (e.g. production suppliers, venues) and internal stakeholders (e.g. sales team, marketeers and sourcing team). The position will give you the opportunity to rapidly develop your skills while being coached by a team that have multiple years of experience when it comes to organising industry-defining events.
