Open Event Intern position

Do you want to be part of Making History in Hollywood – and build your network in the Creative Industries and develop your Business Skills?
We are seeking an Event Intern for the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in Los Angeles during the most exciting period the chamber has ever been through.
The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Los Angeles (SACC-GLA) is planning an exclusive event June 3 and 4 with a focus on innovative and creative industries. The event is growing rapidly and we are now looking for an additional Marketing Manager intern with focus on event planning to start ASAP and stay with us for 6 months.
As an event intern at SACC-GLA you are responsible for:

  • Event management: Plan and discuss event strategies with the board and team, write project description, briefing of team and other involved partners, budget responsibility, time-planning, booking of location and catering, create briefs and be responsible for marketing.
  • Manage sponsorship efforts: Manage and build sponsorship efforts with potential sponsors and negotiate sponsorship deals. Be responsible for monitoring and making sure sponsorship deals are followed through.
  • Handle general marketing: Together with your team, be responsible for the general marketing of the chamber during events and through different marketing channels.

An academic background and experience in event planning and sponsorship management is a huge plus. However, we are open-minded; if you lack experience but still feel that you would fit perfectly for this position, let us know why. Most important is that you have a great personality, excellent written and spoken English, know how to prioritize in stressful situations and that you are a creative problem solver. Great interest in and knowledge about creative industries is also an advantage.
Although the internship is unpaid it is a unique opportunity to invest in your own network and make valuable connections with both the Swedish and the American creative industries. The event will attract leading and innovative Swedish companies and individual talents in film, television, gaming, fashion, music, advertising and key players on the American market such as e.g. investors, distributors and agents. You will also gain experience from managing the largest, most exclusive and creative event ever arranged by the chamber.
For more information about the internship, please contact us at, or just send us your resume and a cover letter. We need your reply at the very latest by March 25th.
