NEW RaceHQ Changes The Game With Online Marketplace

By | Press Releases | No Comments

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.

RaceHQ Membership is totally free for event managers and includes access to RaceHQ’s powerful event planning tool, exclusive invites to expert webinar series, virtual roundtables, downloadable templates, and more.  Get started here to create a free RaceHQ Membership. RaceHQ Members get started below.

Race Directors to leverage buying power of thousands of races on platform

San Diego,RHQ_MHCA – April 9, 2015  RaceHQTM, a first-of-its-kind cloud-based event planning and purchasing tool for participatory events, announced today the release of its MarketHub feature leveraging the buying power of thousands of races on behalf of race directors. In addition to RaceHQ’s powerful project management tool for participatory events, race directors will now have the ability to purchase smarter on everything needed to pull off an event with the convenience of single invoicing and easy payments.

RaceHQ’s new MarketHub feature was created to help race directors produce quality events within budget and make their lives easier. Besides a completely redesigned user-friendly interface released last month, RaceHQ’s MarketHub feature gives its members the ability to receive non-binding, anonymous quick quotes and to work with a dedicated representative throughout the ordering process.  Initial products and services offered include event t-shirts, medals, bibs, registration, timing, photos, rentals, signage, and insurance.

“Until now race directors had very little buying power and spent much of their time chasing down quotes from multiple vendors” said Anton Villatoro, President and Co-Founder of RaceHQ. “With over 2,000 races representing more than 2,000,000 participants on platform, our members kept asking for help in securing quality products and services within their RaceHQ project plans at better prices. Since tasks within a project are intimately tied to purchasing decisions, offering our members a group buying program made perfect sense.”

RaceHQ Membership is for event managers of small-, medium-, and large-sized events and includes access to RaceHQ project management tool, MarketHub group buying program, and exclusive invites to expert webinar series, virtual roundtables, and downloadable templates.
