Sales & Tradestand Co-ordinator

Exeter £25,000 – £27,000 a year – Full-time, Permanent
The Devon County Agricultural Association (DCAA) has played a leading role in the development of agriculture and the rural economy in Devon since its formation in 1872. It is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. Our flagship event is the Devon County Show, staged every third week of May at Westpoint near Exeter. The DCAA owns a subsidiary company, Westpoint Centre (Devon) Limited, that is charged with generating income from the buildings and land during the remaining 11 months of the year.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a commercially focused individual to play a vital role in delivering revenue growth for the Association. The role has two key elements:

  • · Driving sales for Westpoint
  • · Coordinating trade exhibitor bookings for the Devon County Show

The role will involve selling arena, showground and conference space to event organisers, while also exploring new business opportunities for Westpoint. Responsibilities relating to this element of the role are varied but will include preparing contracts, relationship management, event management support, general business administration and maximising commercial revenues.

The role will also have ownership of trade exhibitor sales for the annual Devon County Show. Key responsibilities include revenue growth, tradestand planning and administration while working closely with the wider show team and a large network of dedicated volunteers.

The successful candidate will work closely with the Show Manager, the Westpoint Event Manager and the Chief Executive. They will be highly organised, self-motivated and a team player with excellent customer service skills. An understanding of event management would be advantageous but is not essential.
