Basic Job Description

A ConferenceDirect National Account Manager's primary focus is to assist
customers with site selection and hotel contract negotiation. Additional
responsibilities include determining customer need for additional
services in areas such as on-site conference management, exhibit
requirements, destination management, production/decorating,
housing/registration and other conference related services.

Some of the job responsibilities include:
1) Customer Prospecting and Development on average, National Account
Managers have between five and twenty ongoing client relationships. By
contacting former colleagues, friends, family and associates, you will
want to identify potential customers who would be interested in
utilizing your services. A large portion of your job will revolve around
building and maintaining customer relationships.

2) Hotel Searches once a customer agrees to do business with you, it
becomes your job to find them the right product, at the right price for
their program. In order to do this, you will want to be certain that you
obtain all of the appropriate information from your client, and convey
this information accurately to all hotels included in the search.
ConferenceDirect Associates are able to send leads electronically

3) Information Compilation and Delivery ConferenceDirect provides you
with an excellent Customer Response Template that you will fill out with
availability information from the hotels and forward to your client. You
will then ask your customer to select two-three hotels that they prefer,
and begin negotiations with those hotels that make the customer's
preferred list. It is also your responsibility to relay information
regarding the customer's decision to all hotels that were included in
your search.

4) Contract Negotiation some customers prefer to negotiate contracts on
their own, but others want ConferenceDirect to handle this on their
behalf. Part of your responsibility is to utilize your experience to
negotiate the best possible deal for your customer. ConferenceDirect
does have pre negotiated contracts with many of the major brands to
assist your efforts in this area.

5) Solicitation for Other Services although site selection assistance is
the primary focus for many National Account Managers, there are also
many other ways to earn commission. Part of your responsibility is to
discuss these “other” services with your customer in order to determine
what other aspects of meeting planning ConferenceDirect might be able to
assist with. The information that you uncover is then forwarded to the
Conference Management division for distribution to the appropriate
partner or vendor. You are paid a commission on any referred business
that actualizes.

6) Maintain Relationships Taking all the appropriate steps, using
ConferenceDirect tools and resources to show value to the customers so
they will provide business on a consistent basis versus one time
