We began planning The Running Event 2019 the day after the 2018 edition in Austin closed last November. We thoroughly read through your post-event comments and are taking your feedback and creating an even better event this year.

We believe in listening to our attendees and exhibitors to ensure that The Running Event remains the meeting place for the running industry.

One step we will take in 2019 is to condense The Running Event to three days rather than the four-day format you’ve seen in the past. We will have a full day of quality content for retailers on Tuesday, December 3, and then have two full days of trade show hours on Wednesday and Thursday, December 4 and 5.

With this structure we will increase the amount of time retailers and brands have on the trade show floor. Plus, we’ll still have plenty of time for networking, the Indie 5K and all the other activities that make TRE an enjoyable, worthwhile experience.

We believe this will create a more productive, time-efficient TRE for the run industry.

If you have any questions about these changes or anything else regarding The Running Event 2019, reach out to me at [email protected]
