Reports to: Event Director
UK Salary: Based on experience
This is a unique opportunity for a mid-level PR/Communications professional to build and execute their own campaign for AidEx and Development2030 which are part of the Montgomery Groups international event portfolio. Reporting to the Event Director and working closely with the wider event team, they will deliver a successful and wide-reaching PR Campaign to ensure the brand is recognised worldwide within the aid and development sector and the events are well attended by a high number of quality visitors.
AidEx is already the leading platform for professionals in humanitarian aid. Its fundamental aim is to engage the sector at every level and provide an annual forum to meet, source, supply and learn – and ultimately help improve the efficiency of aid. AidEx comprises of an exhibition, conference and awards programme, the flagship event takes place annually in Brussels and attracts 2,000 visitors and 200 companies exhibiting their products and services. There is currently a satellite event that operates annually in Kenya with potential other events to be launched in other parts of the world.
Development2030 is a launch event for professionals in international development. It focuses on international relations, stability and economic development. With the sector evolving in unprecedented ways and less than ten years to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, the international community requires substantial means to reach our ambitions within this timeframe. Only by working closely together through the sharing of ideas, forming partnerships and collaborating effectively can we achieve this. Which is why as AidEx celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary on 17 – 18 November 2021 in Brussels, a brand new event encompassing a conference and exhibition will be launched to run alongside it. Development2030 – Beyond Aid will offer a unique platform specifically for overseas development actors.
AidEx and Development2030 are part of Montgomery Group, a family-run business which has been operating for 125 years.

Fun to work for; you will have the opportunity to work on a market leading event without having to work within a large conglomerate.
