Race Director Meeting to be Held in Florida

Jan 11, 2017

After a successful launch in 2016, Race Camp returns to the 2017 Running USA Industry Conference, February 26-28 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Race Camp offers attendees the chance to select from eight industry topics, attending three different sessions over the course of the afternoon of Monday, February 27. The conference feature gives attendees the power to create their own programming schedule, choosing the three topics most relevant to them. 

The eight Race Camp sessions for the 2017 Running USA Industry Conference, include:

  • Course Operations
  • Sponsorship
  • Technology: Platforms and Integration
  • Technology: Advancing Email Marketing
  • Technology: Social Media & Engagement
  • Safety & Security
  • Expo Management / Post Event Experience
  • Standing Out! Differentiating Your Event in a Crowded Marketplace

New in 2017, each of the eight topics will run for all three time slots, but instead of having three different sessions take place for each topic, each will simply repeat the same session three times. This change allows attendees the flexibility to jump to three different topics instead of simply being "stuck" with one.

"Last year when we introduced Race Camp, we weren't sure how attendees would like the format and discussion-based sessions," said Christine Bowen, Running USA Vice President of Programming and Operations. "However, we received tremendous feedback and are excited to bring Race Camp back once again, this time with even more engaging topics and knowledgeable moderators. The success of Race Camps speaks to the desire for our attendees to openly collaborate and work together in growing the sport."
