Conference Manager

Would you like an opportunity to help manage one of the world’s largest and most well-known space and satellite events? Access Intelligence, LLC, a leading publisher of business-to-business media, has an immediate opening for a Conference Manager to join its Satellite Group’s Digital and In-Person Events team.

The primary role for this position is to manage conference logistics for our exciting portfolio of satellite and space events, including the annual SATELLITE conference and exhibition in Washington D.C. This includes: digital and in-person conference planning (including production schedule, rehearsals, A/V); speaker preparation and travel support; directing on-site conference staff; and facilitating communication between conference staff and event partner organizations.

You do not need to be an expert on space and satellite technology. You just need to be excited to learn about this fast-growing industry and work with the people who are leading innovation in space. We’re willing to give you the time you need to learn, as well.

The Conference Manager will take ownership of certain events and projects, while providing conference logistical support on others. This role requires someone with people skills. The Conference Manager engages often with speakers, advisory boards, event attendees, and educational partners, and represents the best interests of our events when forming new partnerships.

The Conference Manager will work out of Access Intelligence’s headquarters in Rockville, Maryland and report to the SATELLITE Conference Chair. However, qualified candidates who wish to work remotely will be considered.

Requirements:

  • Strong organizational and time management skills. 
  • Ability to meet short- and long-term deadlines.
  • Ability to both plan and adapt to changes to the plan.
  • Passion for creativity, and an interest in learning about the cutting-edge satellite and space industry.
  • Confidence in leading projects, meetings, and teammates, while also being a team player on projects when serving in a supporting role.
  • A sense of ethics and fairness in creating objective, high-quality conference programming that benefits all event attendees and participants.
  • Experience in any one of the following professions: conference/event planning; b2b or b2c publishing/journalism; news journalism; market analysis; marketing and communications; tech industry business development.
  • Advanced degrees, professional certifications, and proficiencies in database management software and CMS systems are preferred, but not required for this role.
