The Portland Marathon’s 2-Day Workshop for Event Directors & Committee Members of Running and Walking Events
April 2 & 3, 2014
Our workshop for Charleston April 2 & 3 is a “must attend” event for those who do work with events of every size, large and small. The program topics, and networking opportunities will be outstanding. No secrets will be withheld, and no stone will be left unturned! Our first day will be devoted to current issues, volunteers, charities, branding, economic impact, impacting policies, competitors and predators, as well as contingency and emergency issues.
Our second day’s morning format will cover the topic of event management/organization. The afternoon will feature our technology session, which will cover a variety of key issues such as new ideas, social networking, etc.
Presented in panel format – There are no long-winded speeches, and no time wasted talking about lofty or esoteric fluff!
Our faculty of experienced event directors and experts guarantees a conference that’s the best event-related and hands-on exchange in the industry. It’s a conference you will not want to miss! Please note: to ensure the most successful and instructional event, this year we are limiting our Southeast enrollment to 75 attendees – so we encourage early sign up!
