As many of you are aware AAJA Asia will host the annual N3 New.Now.Next Media Conference in HONG KONG this year!… Bringing our 7th regional conference back to HK late May, 2017.
This is a big event and we need a dedicated Executive Conference Producer to continue with our growing and continued success! This will be an exciting opportunity to produce one of Asia’s signature media conferences, bringing together 300+ journalists and media professionals across the region.

We are accepting applications until midnight Jan. 2, 2017 (but may extend the deadline if we need to collect a wider pool of candidates).
It is a five-month PAID POSITION (of which interested applicants will submit a proposed bid for their work) and the candidate will be expected to scale-up hours leading up to the conference late May, 2017.
