World Triathlon has teamed up with the event planning platform OnePlan, designing a tool to help local organizing committees and simplify the staging of the world’s biggest triathlon races as part of its mission to reduce event costs and open triathlon-hosting opportunities to more cities and countries around the world.
The planning tool can be used for free by any triathlon organizer worldwide. It will allow for accurate and collaborative planning between the World Triathlon operations team and sports department and local organizers on issues ranging from interactive 3D mock-ups to barrier placements.
“The benefits of using OnePlan will be felt immediately by all our stakeholders by enabling us to have every element of every event visible in one place,” said World Triathlon Sport Director Gergely Markus. “Hosting triathlons requires a lot of collaboration from many areas. By using OnePlan, we can reduce time and costs for our LOCs while offering the vital reassurance that all the necessary elements are in place, making hosting World Triathlon events in major cities and new regions more attractive, more straightforward and far easier to manage.”
By combining mapping and visual planning tools, the result is a more hands-on and manageable, allowing less-experienced LOCs to be guided through every step of hosting World Triathlon events safely and efficiently and reducing need for site visits.
“Our partnership with World Triathlon will deliver a consistent approach for LOCs to plan triathlons, meaning significant time and cost savings, plus sustainability benefits, by reducing the need for site visits,” OnePlan Chief Executive Officer Paul Foster said. “Designed by World Triathlon and powered by OnePlan, any triathlon organizer worldwide can now use the platform to plan and manage their events.”
