2017 will see Conference Contacts celebrating 30 years of outstanding event delivery - providing our clients with memorable and cost effective event management solutions.
Our success comes from understanding our clients’ objectives to ensure that we provide an effective event solution as a part of their overall communication strategy. We consider ourselves to be a business partner to many of our clients rather than just event, logistics and venue finding suppliers and support them through every stage – from producing a detailed budget to delegate registration and communications, logistics planning, accommodation, transportation and reconciliation of their final accounts.
Of course, we are only as good as our team, which is why we only employ the most experienced event managers where attention to detail is a passion rather than a requirement and protecting our client’s investment is of prime importance. The high level of repeat business we are awarded says everything about the quality of our service.

The role is predominantly office based, 9.00am – 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, however flexibility for some homeworking will be considered. Due to the nature of our business some additional office hours may be required.
