Save the date – Race Directors’ Conference, April 15th

After lengthy discussions drawing on common successes and challenges seen throughout our distinctive sports, Triathlon BC and Athletics BC are planning a joint Race Directors’ Conference in the Spring of 2018.

The planned date for the inaugural Conference is Sunday, April 15th, 10am to 5pm, with lunch provided to all attending participants. The Conference will be held out of the Fortius Sport & Health Centre in Burnaby. Cost-conscious, onsite accommodations are available to all out of town participants.

The Conference will host a number of 45-50 minute sessions on topics important to event organizers, all under the common umbrella of professionalizing event delivery and enriching the participant experience. Each session will be facilitated by senior leaders in their particular field, with an opportunity for an interactive Q & A period immediately following each presentation. A 30 to 60 minute sport-specific breakout session is also planned at the end of the day, featuring an international guest with a rich history in sport and event delivery.

Cost would be kept to a minimum, covering facility rental, lunch and presenter expenses. Travel subsidies will be available for Race Directors attending from outside of the Metro Vancouver area.

At this time we would like to gauge interest in attending this co-hosted event, and what topics would be of most interest to our attendees.
