About the Role:
We are working hard on an ambitious event for AOL Tech, which will feature key consumer electronics product folks, new product rollouts and much more. The 2-3 day agenda will require a lot of hard work to build, and the editorial team, while deeply enthusiastic about the event and full of ideas, needs a strong, versatile, team-oriented colleague to help drive the content of this project. Event logistics are well covered by our team, but we need someone to work fulltime to extract ideas from the editors, refine them, and pursue the folks we need at HTC, Samsung, Sony and elsewhere. This individual will require that unique combination of irresistible enthusiasm, 1000w charm, and unstoppable drive that marks a great event creator. They also need to know a fair bit about consumer electronics and the industry in general. They should have a strong understanding of the AOL Tech community and a desire to wow and delight them. The show will be landmark for the most important media brand in consumer electronics, and for the right person a great career achievement to launch a new franchise of this scope and ambition.
Working with the edit team to shape the agenda for AOL Tech events, big and small, following up on ideas, locking in participants, preparing the agenda, hosting speakers at the event, building relationships across the industry in the context of events.
Strong initiative, winning and persuasive personality, strong familiarity with enthusiasm for consumer electronics, experience cold-calling important people and working with them, their assistants, and their communications people to turn invites into actual agreements to participate. Strong organization skills, great floor presence.
