Are you our new project manager?

We are looking for a project manager/event coordinator for Oslo Innovation Week to join our team from May – September 2019.

We are looking for someone who gets things done, is experienced in event booking, and knows the tech/startup field (in Oslo).

Oslo Innovation Week 2019 is 50 events hosted across central Oslo 23-27 September.

Every year Oslo Innovation Week attracts 10.000 attendees and 250+ speakers.

Oslo Business Region coordinate event partners and communicate the events through digital channels and to international media. In addition, we organize key events such as The Official Opening and OIW 100 Pitches.
