Event Manager

Job description

Monday morning. You enter our new office next to Amstel station. While you’re waiting for your coffee, you already hear colleagues preparing for the day. You’ll start the day checking the what kind of new events we can attend and if everything is arranged for the exhibition we have next month. As an Event Manager you are responsible for the production of events from conception through to completion. The different events can include exhibitions and fairs, festivals, conferences and promotion and product launches. You work closely with other departments such as Marketing, HR, Design and Sales & Support. Your contribution helps Virtuagym grow internationally and you make sure Virtuagym provides the very best software solution world wide.

The week has flown by. Friday, 16:30. The cold beers are waiting to be opened, music is turned on and snacks appear on the tables. We’re one step closer to world domination, and that’s something to celebrate every week. You leave our building with pride. Who would have thought that you could contribute this much to the growth of an ambitious organization and that work could be so much fun?

Anyway, back to the beginning.
