The Intelligent Transportation Society of America is seeking to hire an event marketing manager for the 2014 World Congress on Intelligent Transportation Systems, taking place Sept. 7-11, 2014, in Detroit.
The 2014 World Congress on ITS will bring together more than 10,000 of the world’s leading transportation policymakers, researchers, high-tech innovators and business professionals making it the premier ITS event of the year in the Americas. Few places in the world have the concentration of companies, research institutions and deploying agencies in transportation as does Detroit. The “Motor City” brings the opportunity to learn and leverage from the highly innovative transportation culture centered in the region and supports the theme of the 21st World Congress: Reinventing transportation in our connected world.
The primary responsibility of the event marketing manager will be to co-develop and implement an integrated marketing plan for the 2014 World Congress on ITS in partnership with ITS America’s communications and public affairs team. Identifying and establishing relationships with key industry partners as well as nontraditional partners to assist with our marketing efforts will be essential. Prior experience in event marketing and the high-tech transportation industry is strongly desired as well as proven project management experience. Writing skills are paramount and a successful candidate must have at least three years of experience in a position heavily oriented towards writing.
The ideal candidate would be able to begin Aug. 1, 2013. This is a 14-month, full-time position that does not include benefits. The full job description of responsibilities and qualifications can be found on the ITS America website. Interested applicants should send their resume, salary requirements and two writing samples to Ashley Simmons, director of communications at ITS America, for consideration.
