rrmlogosm.gif June 27, 2008 from press release. Florida will again play host to the Road Race Management Race Directors� Meeting and Trade Show, November 6 - 8. Thousands of race officials, corporate sponsors, advertising and public relations executives, and others interested in road running have attended this annual fall gathering since it started in 1983. Advance interest is higher than ever for our 25th Anniversary meeting and trade show . Road Race Management has again recruited some of the sport's most experienced and articulate leaders to share their wealth of knowledge, said coordinator Jeff Darman.

Phil Stewart, Road Race Management editor and publisher added, "Our new site on the beach (Marriott Hollywood Beach Resort) offers a great destination for event directors not only to obtain valuable information, but also as a great spot to unwind and network."

Many race committees reward committee members with a trip to this meeting, finding it a great way to give key volunteers a special treat while rejuvenating them for next year's race.

The weekend offers informal 'networking' opportunities, and race officials also get a chance to 'shop' for all their equipment and service needs at the two-day Trade Exhibit in conjunction with the meeting. Exhibits will include awards, competitor numbers, banners, fencing, finish-line timing services, computer products and web services, t-shirts, jackets and other apparel, magazines and photographic services.

Some of this year's sessions will cover Marathon Relays, the 'New Media,' Green Events, Post Finish-line Planning, and Race Course Design and Management. The keynote speaker will be Toni Reavis, well-known television and radio commentator, webcaster and writer. The full program is detailed at

The Road Race Management meeting is supported in part by Ashworth Awards, Atlanta Track Club, Britten, Inc., Gasparilla Distance Classic, Electric City Printing, Gatorade, Leslie Jordan, Inc., MarathonFoto,, Running Network, The End Result Company, and the World�s Best 10K.
