Reporting to the Event Manager, this is an exciting opportunity to forge a career in B2B exhibition sales.

The role is primarily office based but will also involve a degree of face-to-face presentation both to clients at our own and competitive as well as part of the communication with the larger, international sales team.

All aspects of your sales skills will be tested: cold calling, researching new leads, identifying new opportunities, benefit selling, handling objections successfully, closing deals and winning client trust with the objective of building long-term commercial relationships.

The role will test your abilities but it will ultimately be thoroughly rewarding and will enhance your value as an experienced sales professional.

To be considered for this Exhibition Sales Executive role you must have proven B2B Exhibition/sponsorship sales with at least 6 months to 1 year's experience, the client would consider a strong Delegate sales person looking to step up or equally someone coming from a strong Media Sales background would also be considered.
