Topic: Ultimate Triathlon Experience: How to Put on a Successful Event at the Local Level
This Webinar will explore how Race Directors can deliver a first class experience for their athletes at local multisport events! We have seen tremendous growth in our sport over the past few years, and Race Directors have been challenged to provide an unforgettable experience for their athletes, especially at local events. There are multiple ways to change first time multisport athletes into repeat customers and leave them talking about your races all year long! Some of the topics discussed during this webinar include:
1. How to go from “Race Directing” to “Experience Directing”
2. Importance of Course Design: three key concepts - safety, attractiveness, and accessibility.
3. Implementing Event Experiential Marketing: sense, feel, think, act, and relate marketing practices.
4. Focusing on the beginner/first-time multisport athlete
5. How to implement social marketing/networking into your event(s)
