Race Directors offered free membership to produce quality events within budget.
San Diego, CA – September 29, 2015 RaceHQ ™, a first-of-its-kind online event planning and purchasing tool for participatory events, announced today its game-changing online marketplace created to help race directors produce quality events within budget. RaceHQ members will now have the ability to work with vendors put through a stringent RFP process, leverage the group buying power of thousands of races, and manage orders from start-to-finish using its powerful online planning tool. Initial products and services include event shirts, medals, bibs, registration, timing, photos, rentals, signage, and insurance.
“Most events have little to no buying power and are lucky to break-even or turn a profit and often sacrifice quality to meet budget constraints. Additionally, the process of researching vendors and chasing down multiple quotes is very time consuming and does nothing to actually grow an event” said Anton Villatoro, President and Co-Founder of RaceHQ. “With a quickly expanding membership of over 1,500 races representing more than 2,000,000 participants on the platform, leveraging our event planning software to streamline the ordering process with multiple vendors all in one centralized place to directly address these issues made perfect sense.”
In addition to its fresh new look and powerful new features, the new RaceHQ platform will:
- Connect race directors with vetted and preferred vendors – Race Directors will now save time and have peace of mind by eliminating the time-consuming and frustrating process of sourcing and evaluating top-rated vendors.
- Provide exceptional value on everything needed to produce an event – Race Directors will now be able to leverage the collective buying power of thousands of races for high-quality products and services at amazingly low prices.
- Streamline the process of submitting, managing, and tracking orders – Race Directors will now be able to know exactly when to submit orders and be able to track their process with multiple vendors all in one centralized location.
