Marketing Trainee
The South India Textile Research AssociationMarketing Trainee
Apr. 2018 - Jun. 2018Coimbatore Area, IndiaI got interested in SITRA as they were conducting pioneering research work on nanotechnology based applications in the field of medical textiles. I was aligned with this line of work as I had already made an attempt at creating business opportunity based on workwear enhanced with nanotechnology based finishing chemicals. However, since major research projects in this area were already nearing completion I decided to learn the business aspects of the same and hence joined as a marketing trainee. My main role was to promote an expo we conducted to draw buyers of medical wear, wherein I was part of a team that made bookings for stalls at the expo to prominent suppliers of medical wearin the southern region. Companies from allied industries also made their bookings and participated successfully. General feedback of suppliers were that they found numerous potential leads, some of which converted to regular buyers. SITRA also found many new customers for their own testing facilities. Assigned role Coordinate with core committee for organizing expo-cum-conference on Medical Textiles Results delivered + Collected and organised database of prospective participants + Developed content for marketing communications and setup e-mail campaigning + Shortlisted potential participants through telephonic/face-to-face meetings + Negotiated pricing on stall bookings with interested parties + Handed over customers to core team for closing sales + Managed billing and key customer accounts + Provided round-the-clock assistance to core team in running organiser's stall + Attended to 20% of total inquiries and handed over a third for closing sales + Fulfilled the following roles in conducting a conference alongside the expo: > Convening audience and speakers for the event > Compering during the event > Assist with on-stage needs of chief guests
Jan. 2017 - Mar. 2018Gurgaon, Haryana, IndiaDuring this period I was working on developing nanotechnology based garments for workwear that would have oil and water repellent properties. I mainly coordinated with my home university for R&D and incubation support and found suppliers for finishing chemicals that give the required properties to garment fabric and reduce wear and tear. However, due to fallout with local buyers who for obvious reasons discouraged durable garments the idea had to be shelved at that point of time. In search of a viable market abroad and in order to gain exposure to export market I changed my career path. Soon after, I joined SITRA as I found there a learning opportunity as they were conducting research work in similar areas.
