* Defining goals, objectives, and tactical approach to each event;

* Planning and executing¿with Communications colleagues¿the communications/marketing activity before, during, and after the event;

* Managing event logistics and details, including budgeting;

* Traveling, as needed, to set up and manage on-site presence; and

In addition, the Events Manager will:
