THE RUNNING CONFERENCE presented by haku

The Running Conference 2024 #TRC24 is the annual conference for members of Running Industry Alliance (RIA) to meet, share, network and collaborate in a safe Member-to-Member business space.

RIA members attending are from across ten defined verticals of the Running Industry including Brand, Retail, Events, Media, Charity, Community, NGB, Services, Suppliers and Distributors.

The conference features content specifically curated for RIA Members based on topics that are relevant, timely, and impactful for the sport and business of Running.

The content will focus on the areas of The Market Place; Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB); Health and Wellbeing; Research, Data and Insights; Sustainability and Future.

Creating deep-dives into these topics and areas with a mix of speakers, panels, workshops, round table discussions, activations, celebrations and plenty of industry (B2B) networking at #TRC24

All sessions are content, market insight and added value led rather than business promotion, giving attendees a vast amount of industry knowledge from a three day action packed and built for purpose conference.

#TRC24 is built for business and support of the industry B2B, with all RIA Members predominantly B2C focussed, offering a B2B2C perspective, support, knowledge, insights and understanding from across industry verticals. Creating a safe business space and collaborative eco-system for RIA Members.

Attendance is for members-only of Running Industry Alliance (RIA), and many RIA Members see the conference as a place to re-set, re-connect, and re-focus on past learnings and look forward to future developments together for the year ahead!

***One ticket to attend TRC24 is included in Running Industry Alliance (RIA) annual Membership. see below for about RIA***
