Who are we looking for?

We need talented people with a certain something to join our teams across the world. If you like taking action and feeling responsible for delivering results, there's a good chance you'll enjoy working with us. 

You'll do well at Reed Exhibitions if you have an enthusiastic "can do" attitude and are inventive; events is an exciting, dynamic business and we're often working to a deadline, looking for ways to make sure each event is a success for our customers.

It's a lot of fun, so if you are professional and take work seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously, join in and stand out.

Amanda joined Reed Exhibitions Greater China in 2013, bringing her expertise of social media marketing to our Beijing office.

She was quickly promoted to E-Marketing and Product Manager and she now manages the e-business team, working closely with the various event teams across Greater China to offer digital products to the exhibitors and visitors attending our Chinese events.

In 2015, Amanda requested to work with our teams in France as a member of our global talent exchange programme. She joined the digital marketing team for the first two weeks of September, in order to learn about best practice in e-business from Reed MIDEM, which is considered a Centre of Excellence for Digital within our company.

Her experience in France helped to develop her understanding of European culture, share opinions and sharpen her strategic insight into how to attract more European visitors to China shows.

Katherine joined Reed Exhibitions Australia in 2012 and has embraced the opportunities available for career progression and collaboration. 

She enjoys the fast paced and varied environment and as well as working on each show in the Retail Portfolio, she has been accepted into the competitive Emerging Leaders Program. 

Katherine also took part in our global talent exchange programme, joining the Customer Success team at G2E in Las Vegas, to understand how the team integrates with the Sales, Marketing, Fulfilment and Research teams in the office, and how to strengthen customer experience in Australia.

She described it as "an invaluable experience to learn and share best practices with my colleagues.  As a business, we are encouraged to collaborate with our colleagues across business units, but this can prove challenging when regular business tasks and show planning takes over. Being able to have face to face meetings and open discussions sparked great conversations and has seen continued idea sharing and brainstorming since I have returned."

Sian is the Conference Manager for our Aerospace team, covering a range of events for the aviation, helicopter and travel catering industries. 

She joined us in 2011 as an event coordinator and now looks after the logistics, direction and strategy of our conference and networking events – that’s everything from marketing to operations.

In 2015, as part of our global talent exchange programme, she travelled down to Australia. There she worked with conference teams in the medical events sector, based in our Sydney office, and attended one of their prime events held in Melbourne to see strategy in action.  This visit gave her the chance to learn from teams in a different industry and work with colleagues on the other side of the world – one of the benefits of working in a truly international business.

Sales & Marketing

Daniel Cordock Daniel
International Sales Executive
International Sales Group

I joined the Reed Exhibitions UK Sales Academy in June 2014, joining straight out of University where I was studying for a History degree. I knew almost nothing about sales, and even less about exhibitions, but the Sales Academy gave me a three month masterclass in both of these. I suddenly found myself in a fast paced, fun and consistently changing environment which has allowed me to develop my own work ethic and sales technique based around exhibition sales.

After three months of being in the Sales Academy, I was invited to join the export sales division of Reed Exhibitions – ISG, the International Sales Group. No other role could have given me such an insight into export or how exhibitions can work across different platforms in different countries. In my first year of work I’ve been able to experience exhibitions and how Reed Exhibitions operates and delivers consistently across the world, taking me from Paris to Bangkok in the meantime.

I’ve had the unique opportunity to develop contacts across the world, both internal and external of Reed Exhibitions. In the summer of 2015, with the help of a colleague in our German office, I was able to establish the first ever ‘Anglo-German Reed Exhibitions Cup’ a weekend football tournament between our German and English offices held in Dusseldorf.  Over the course of the weekend, players from across our UK marketing, sales and IT departments faced off against our German counterparts for a weekend full of football, beer and bratwurst!

Reed Exhibitions has given me a global insight into the world of exhibitions and trade shows, essentially taking me from a trainee to a sales professional within the space of two years. Few other opportunities would have allowed me to develop so successfully over such a short period of time.

Rohit joined our Delhi office in 2012, with experience in research, strategic consulting and corporate finance. He's passionate about market insights and researching potential target acquisitions to build a pipeline of great business development opportunities. 

He is never happier at work than when he’s engaging with joint venture partners to understand their needs, or managing commercial due diligence to help us land a new show, such as our investment in Comic Con India.

In 2015 Rohit was sponsored to travel to the US and work alongside Brian, VP Customer Insights Research, and his team. They helped Rohit gain deeper insights into research implementation and analysis and to acquire new transferable skills that he is now putting into practice to grow our business in India.  

Whilst in the US, Rohit also took up the chance of volunteering for the RE Cares initiative at a Connecticut food bank.  He said the community work "made me realize that I work for a company that is not only motivated by profits, but also gives back to the community".
