PROJECT MANAGER - EXPERIENTIAL
The Project Manager will be responsible for managing high-profile projects that span a wide range of disciplines including promotional tours, activation, pop-ups, events, digital executions and PR. The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 3 years hands-on activation experience.
We seeking a candidate who embraces the unknown and enjoys a new set of challenges with every project.

Duties will include but are not limited to:
Developing and managing projects from conception to execution including research, production, creative development, vendor management, permitting, venue negotiation, budgeting, etc.
Occasional client-facing materials including status memos, budgets, billing, presentations, etc.
Brainstorming / ideating concepts
Strong background producing events
3+ years of project management working in a variety of disciplines rooted in event marketing (activations, pop-ups, digital, mobile marketing, etc.)
Ability to identify client and project needs and take action without direction
Excellent verbal and written presentation skills
Strong knowledge of industry landscape and relevant cultural trends
Comfortable taking a “hands-on” approach to event management
