Conference, fairs and webinars manager

We are undergoing an exciting transformation as part of our growth journey, and our presence and performance within the Conference, Fairs and Webinar space is a pivotal enabler – one that now requires a talented and capable manager in order to ensure that we succeed in our transformation. 

Reporting to the Head of Commercial Operations and Marketing, you will be part of a passionate international team and help take the lead in our journey to becoming a key strategic partner to other critical departments at Haldor Topsoe. 

At Topsoe, we are very active within our industry’s event space, and we are undergoing an organizational change with the ambition of centrally structuring, driving, and optimizing our efforts within this important area.

As the Conference, Fairs and Webinars Manager, you’ll be responsible for setting the strategic direction, planning, management, and organization of all aspects of various events (industry conferences and fairs, customer seminars, webinars, etc.) in close collaboration with our Business Sections leads.

You will also work closely with our Global Sales & Service functions, Marketing Business Partnering function, and our current Conference, Fairs, and Webinars planner. As such, you’ll operate within a very broad global stakeholder network, also including our senior leadership.

As a new team lead, you’ll ensure that our products, technologies, solutions, and services are properly represented at the right events, at the right time, with the right employees and the right messages.  You will drive your area with a high level of accuracy and quality, in a cost-effective, measurable, and timely manner.

While taking a leading role, you’ll also be expected to work as a self-driven, business-savvy manager who thrives in both an operational and executional role.
