The Running Event has opened its Call for Education and is now accepting proposals for speaking opportunities in the 2022 educational program.

“Our goal for this year’s conference is to provide actionable education to professionals at all levels of experience in specialty retail and event management,” said Christina Henderson, The Running Event Executive Director. “As the run specialty industry continues to evolve and push boundaries, we’re searching for individuals who can offer the fresh viewpoints and tangible takeaways our audience requires for continued growth and success.”

With the Call for Education, The Running Event furthers its commitment to providing a platform that showcases a range of voices, experience, and expertise. Featuring approximately 20 sessions, the #TRE22 conference will examine critical topics across areas like market trends and forecast, learnings and inspiration from similar industries, buying, sales strategy, inclusion, sustainable practices, hiring and retention, innovative marketing, the future of events, and modern merchandising.

Speaking formats include workshops, keynote presentations, individual and dual sessions, and panels. In addition to being positioned as an industry leader, 2022 speakers will receive a complimentary registration pass, exclusive networking opportunities, and exposure across TRE’s digital channels and marketing initiatives.

In further news, #TRE22 welcomed Running Insight Editor Michael Jacobsen to the conference program team. With his extensive specialty retail experience and running industry connections, Jacobsen will help ensure attendees leave #TRE22 with actionable learnings and impactful takeaways.
