Event Director College Scheduled

Apr 05, 2013
Event Designed to Educate Planners of Sports Events

Event directors and others who plan to be involved with the setup and implementation of sports events including running events, are encouraged to attend the 23rd Portland Marathon Event Directors College from October 3-5, 2013. An interactive and educational experience, our Event Directors’ College is primarily a “tactical” hands-on workshop where the details of how to put on an event are reviewed and discussed.

Nine reasons why event directors shouldn’t miss this invaluable 3-day workshop:

  • It’s the only event directors’ college that focuses 100% on events from the hands-on/tactical perspective

  • Top quality guest panelists, with expertise in sponsorship, event management, event directing, administration, marketing, public relations, to name just a few

  • The best assemblage of industry representatives in the world with years of event directing experience and expertise

  • A make-up of Event Directors from small to large events, willing to openly share and learn

  • A conference coupled with a marathon event where you can see inside the event

  • A place to learn the nuts and bolts of event management and the secrets that only experience can teach

  • A presentation format where participants can ask questions and join in the dialogue

  • Networking, social events and participation in many of the scheduled Portland Marathon events as a spectator, VIP, volunteer or participant.

  • All kinds of other ‘special goodies’

 The event will take place Thursday, October 3, 2013   8:00 AM to Saturday, October 5, 2013   8:00 PM at 1849 SW Salmon St. Portland , OR.

Prices for individual registration are $495.00 in advance; $545 at the door.
