Event Manager (Luxury Experience & Design Center)
At Advantage (An IPG Company), We Make Brands Happen. We do it in 4 different ways:
And, we do all this through an “Art and Science” approach that includes a world-class creative team and a research-fueled account team, both led by industry veterans.
ABOUT THE POSITION:
If the culinary and event scene is what you are all about, then Napa is where you want to be. Legendary for its wine, gourmet food and outstanding hospitality experiences, Napa is also home to our client’s luxury appliance experience center. As our new Event Manager, you'll be placed in the center of it all!
In this role, you will split time between leading the pre-planning logistics for guests and the brand immersion experiences and events for select retail, design and building trade customers, all held at our client’s state of the art "Experience & Design Center". The Center is a 23,000 sq. ft. space featuring showrooms, a conference center, a fully functional teaching kitchen, an AI "lifestyle zone," a tasting room, and VIP dining room!
While your office will be located in the Napa Design Center, this role will also work closely with the Advantage team in Stamford, CT. Working side-by-side with our client every day, you will be the face of Advantage for all events taking place at the facility, and will facilitate communications between the clients, our local Napa vendors, and the Stamford-based Account Team.
You will assist with all aspects related to the daily event operations of the facility. This entails coordinating ongoing training programs, designer, trade & VIP events, and customer meetings. You’ll assist guests with on-site logistics and travel planning, handle details with local vendors and hotels, coordinate program agendas, handle overall facility calendar, and make sure all necessary details are in place.
Ideally, you will have prior event and hospitality experience and client management experience. Attention to detail, the ability to multitask efficiently, and a passion for executing top-notch events is what we're looking for.
