Overview

The Event Manager is the liaison between the show manager/client and all building operations staff and contractors. After the contract is signed for an event, the Event Manager works directly with the client to provide any needs from the facility. In addition, the Event Manager makes certain that all building policies and procedures are followed in preparing for and implementing the event. When the event is in the building, the Event Manager runs the show, making certain that the client’s needs are met and any building or safety issues are addressed immediately. The Event Manager is the PBCCC staff member with whom the client will have the most contact before, during and after the event; and it is imperative that service is a priority with the position. It is important that the Event Manager can anticipate potential problems and in all cases, be solution oriented so that the client can achieve the most important result – a successful show. The Event Manager is the first and last staff member the client sees during the event; and the quality of service a client receives is the best sales tool for a return visit.
