Beth's Story

"RX is a global organisation offering many different opportunities."

I joined Reed as a Marketing Manager and now work as a Portfolio Sales Director in our International Sales Group. 

My advice is to stay curious, meet as many people in different divisions, competencies, countries and roles as you can, as that's how you'll build a strong reputation and open doors for your career progression.

Secondly, have a strong team around you. The team here in Norwalk and our team around the world have helped me achieve goals that I could not achieve on my own.

Lastly - put in the work. You get what you give, so if you give a lot, you'll get a lot.

Daniel's Story

"I enjoy the consistently changing, fast paced and fun environment."

I joined the Reed Exhibitions UK Sales Academy straight after University. 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 was then invited to join the export sales division of Reed – 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. I was able to experience exhibitions and how Reed operates and delivers consistently across the world, taking me from Paris to Bangkok.

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.

Working in Sales

Our values are centred around collaboration and sharing knowledge with pride. These values tie in to our sales environment, in which we encourage a passion for winning, not just as a business but also for our clients. We do this through taking the time to deeply understand their needs to ensure they are not just provided with a stand space, but also a chance to promote their products and services before, after and during their event with us.

As we're a face-to-face industry, big shaking hands, smiling faces and eye contact are in our DNA. If you're comfortable in this space, there's every chance that you're the kind of person we want to join us. We're looking for go-getting individuals who are able to fit into this data-driven environment, who not only have a great ability over the phone but in person too.

We'll reward you with on-going training and development, as well as allowing you to gain a first-hand insight into world markets and industries. This is an unrivalled opportunity to learn about not just the event industry, but the way in which a global business works, how industries work, and how associations play a role.

"The most rewarding part of sales is the opportunity to really expand your horizons in terms of what you know about the world markets and industries."
