Trade show coordinators are responsible for the research, design, development, and coordination of conferences, conventions, and other large-scale events. These coordinators interact with clients, other team members, and product vendors to promote existing and new promotional content. They also mediate communication between the company and its clients, partners, and external audiences. Responsibilities of trade show coordinators may include supervising budgets, managing assets such as website content, and providing content and materials to media outlets. Trade show coordinators often work in time-limited situations and must be able to respond to multiple competing obligations while meeting deadlines.
