International Data Group Event Content Manager in Needham, Massachusetts
IDG Communications is seeking an Event Content Manager to join our events team! With tremendous success across virtual events that target technology leaders, we’re seeking a talented, tenacious, and creative professional to join our event content team.
IDG Communications' vision is to make the world a better place by enabling the right use of technology. As the leading global media and data company powered by first party relationships, our collaborative, innovative and customer focused culture fosters success for our customers and our employees.
Our virtual summits are where busy Chief Information Officers and IT executives come to learn, network, and get new ideas for moving their businesses forward. Our agendas and invited speakers across the Fortune 500 inform and inspire -- giving our attendees tangible ideas to bring back to their teams and engaging them to return each month for our next event.
We’re looking for a content manager who understands the IT landscape and can speak like a peer to IT leaders as prospective event speakers. We are looking for someone who:
has strong written and verbal communications to pique interest and ultimately land top CIOs in larger companies to speak at our events and
understands the dynamics of a compelling agenda and how to coach speakers and moderators to deliver sessions with meaningful takeaways for the audience.
This content manager might also have interest in on-camera work, whether it be moderating sessions or interviewing event participants.
Upon joining IDG, you can expect a stable, consultative, and fast paced work environment along with an office culture that rewards, recognizes, and respects achievement. We offer competitive salaries, an outstanding benefits package and an atmosphere dedicated to advancing our passion in providing cutting-edge advertising and marketing solutions for our clients.
