Events Marketing Manager
Start date: 01/07/2017
Mainstage Travel is a festival organizer and travel provider for a number of European Festivals. We operate our own festivals such as Snowboxx which takes place in the incredible ski resort of Avoriaz, France. We also operate holidays, such as Magaluf Takeover. We also operate the travel functions for many other festivals, such as Fresh Island and Outlook Festival.
Over the next few years, we will be expanding our range of products across a variety of markets, with fast expansion planned.
We create our festivals so that they are the best possible week in the location - concerts in the middle of the mountains to karaoke in gondola cabins, igloo raves to bottomless brunches above the clouds…and so much more with our new festivals. It will be your job to sell these to the world!
