The global pandemic has dramatically changed the landscape of the event marketplace in
Canada and around the world. Many of these changes are solidifying into permanent fixtures for
the foreseeable future. In partnership with and building on the amazing work of Triathlon BC and
Triathlon Alberta, we are teaming up to offer a special COVID-19 oriented National Race Directors
Conference over the weekend of November 28 & 29.
This will be a free conference open to any and all who would like to attend with the goal of bringing
together race organizers from across Canada to share on relevant topics as we prepare to hit the
start line in 2021.
The conference will be hosted virtually on the Zoom platform. Recognizing the challenges of
virtual conferences, the sessions have been spread over two days with a 3.5 hour block each day
to maximize focus and engagement. Each topic will be facilitated by an industry expert aimed
at all events, regardless of budget or participation rates, and offer attendees sufficient time for
questions and answers. All sessions will be done in English, but a translator will be available to
assist with questions in French.
“Understanding the challenges and hardships associated with the 2020 season, where over
97% of our provincially sanctioned events were canceled, Triathlon BC remains hopeful that the
2021 season will see a modified race calendar return,” said Allan Prazsky, Triathlon BC, Executive
Director. “It’s our intent to keep Race Directors from across BC (and Canada) informed of best
practices, allowing for the safest return to sport possible.”
