The organisers of the popular Sports Indaba will be hosting the inaugural edition of the Running Summit on 18 April 2019 in Cape Town and it will also feature the inaugural Running Awards, giving recognition to the country’s best performing athletic events. The Summit will convene key stakeholders like race organisers, associations and federations, clubs, sponsors, marketing agencies, municipalities, provincial sport and recreation departments respectively, to engage each other on how to holistically manage the sustainable future of athletic events.
The Summit will have a major focus on Event Sponsorship with some of SA’s premier thought leaders and sponsors sharing their know-how with our delegates in a highly interactive conversation pertaining to organising and marketing sustainable athletic events. Participating sponsorship decision makers will share with the audience their key considerations when deciding to sponsor and partner events.
Staging sport events is no longer a part-time consideration and the Summit will unpack the key challenges facing organisers when sourcing funding from potential commercial partners.
The Running Awards will be the highlight of the Summit and it will bestow accolades in more than 40 different categories to celebrate excellence in the business of organising sustainable athletic events. . More Details
