Events Industry Internship Program

Company Overview: Diversified Communications is a leading global media and event organizer with a diverse portfolio in business-to-business trade expositions, conferences, publications and digital products. Our mission is to connect, educate and strengthen business communities in the industries we serve. Established in 1949, we are headquartered in Portland, Maine with divisions and offices around the world and remains a privately held, family-owned business employing 500+ professionals around the world.

Diversified Communications is a safe, inclusive workplace for people from all backgrounds and communities. As a part of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in our industry and communities, we strongly encourage you to apply if you are from an underrecognized group. We strive to develop and grow our population of employees with lived experiences in historically non-dominant groups including minoritized racial and ethnic communities, the LGBTQIA+ community, and those with disabilities, who are seeking a career in event and exhibition management, business, marketing or communications, IT, content development or journalism, and related fields.

About the Program: This is a summer internship program based in our Portland, Maine headquarters. You’ll be challenged with meaningful work and will be responsible for meeting deadlines, producing results, and contributing to business operations. To cap off your experience, you’ll have the opportunity to attend and work at an event with the team.


We have two internship opportunities available:

The Sales Support Intern reports to our Seafood Group helping the sales team gather customer feedback on digital product awareness among exhibitors, financial objections among companies, and assisting in prospecting efforts for both digital and event brands.

The Social Media Marketing Intern reports to our Clean Energy Group and will assist in identifying opportunities for our product’s expansion on social media. This would include auditing the social media landscape, creating a content calendar, developing & deploying content, and monitoring engagement and reporting performance.

If your degree program and/or area of experience and interest is in Sales, Marketing, or a related field, we encourage you to apply.


Successful candidates must demonstrate strong organizational skills to plan workflow, handle overlapping activities, meet established deadlines, excellent communication skills and the ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment. Above all, we are seeking individuals who are curious and passionate about advancing their career within the exhibition and event industry!

What happens when the program ends?
We’ve been very successful at hiring and retaining past interns, and typically have opportunities available for early career professionals in marketing, event operations, sales, IT, or content creation.

Other Important Specifics:
This is a paid internship opportunity. We are flexible on the days/hours requirement and seek candidates who can work 3-4 days per week for at least 24 hours/week. This position is hybrid, reporting into the physical office and having the flexibility to work remotely. Some travel may be required!

Applications are due by May 3, 2024. We would like to have our roles filled and on board by early June 2024.


We are dedicated to creating, promoting, and nurturing a safe and inclusive work environment and we expect the same from each of our employees. We value diverse talents and welcome individuals with unique backgrounds, working styles, and skillsets. We believe that our differences make us a better team and stronger community by allowing us to make better decisions, be more innovative, and better serve our customers and business partners.
