OPPORTUNITIES AT AKABO MEDIA

CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

Position: Head of Marketing, Exhibitions

Akabo Media already produces two of the most widely acclaimed exhibitions in the industry – IntraLogisteX and Robotics and Automation and in 2022, we already have plans to launch more.

We are looking, therefore, for a Head of Marketing: Exhibitions to not only grow our existing events but also help plan, promote and ensure the success of our new launches next year.

Working within a talented and successful team you will bring your experience to bear to ensure that success. You will already have experience of marketing exhibitions, maybe launches and hopefully some people management skills.

As you might expect, your rewards will be commensurate not only with your experience but with the success you undoubtedly will bring to these events.

If you are interested in working in a truly dynamic, successful and fun environment then please apply.

Position: Publisher, Logistics Manager

Logistics Manager has been published or over 25 years. It is the UK’s leading, independent publication on logistics and supply chain. The publication, though its combination of independent, unrivalled editorial and cutting-edge news and features epitomises all that is important in business to business publishing – in print, in digital, in person. As well as the magazine there are the renowned Supply Chain Excellence Awards, the Top 50, the Supply Chain Conference and a host of other products.

We are looking for a Publisher who can not only continue this journey but expand the reach and value of Logistics Manager and its brand to its community even further into the next decade.

The requirements for this role, of course, are that the individual has a keen eye and experience for what makes a business-to-business publication brand tick, has a strong commercial background but is equally interested in quality content and how the two can work together.

The circulation and database of Logistics Manager and its associated products are a by word for excellence and quality and the individual will work with the editorial, marketing and circulation team to ensure that this continues.
