Conference coordinators also perform office activities, such as taking inbound calls, responding to voice mails, emailing responses to inquiries, and using copiers and scanners to produce items related to inquiries. These professionals generally work in an office setting, although travel is frequently required to complete pre-conference tasks and provide on-site support as the conference occurs.Read More...
