May I introduce...
Robert Stelling! Product Manager Interclean at RAI Amsterdam.
"RAI Exhibition is the department of RAI that is responsible for organizing our own shows and exhibitions. We don’t just do that here at the RAI, but also abroad. Within RAI Exhibitions there are dedicated teams working for on brand or show title, so you really get to know that industry, the trends and the people within that industry.
Right now I am working for Interclean, a global range of trade shows for the professional cleaning industry, taking place in Amsterdam, Istanbul, Las Vegas and Mexico City. But we also have teams working on for example the Traffic Technology show Intertraffic, the horticultural show Greentech, the famous Huishoudbeurs or the Horecava.
So what does a product manager do? Well, basically I am responsible for the concept of the trade shows: making sure that the right people meet the right people to build inspiring connections. It gives me so much energy to see over 30.000 people enjoy themselves at an exhibition I have helped to create. And with my background in event management, marketing and international business those fields all coming together in this role – so you could say I have landed my dream job here.
There is always something going on at RAI, from a large exhibition to a big corporate event and from a medical conference to a dance event. There is never a dull moment and not a day is the same. And so how did I find this dream job of mine? The old fashioned way by visiting this website and applying to a vacancy posted. I hope to see you soon as a colleague!"
