As part of its mission to reduce event costs and open up triathlon event hosting to more cities and national federations, World Triathlon has teamed up with event planning platform OnePlan. “By combining mapping and visual planning tools, the result is a more hands-on and manageable approach, also allowing less-experienced local organising committees (LOCs) to be guided through every step of hosting World Triathlon events safely and efficiently and reducing need for time-consuming site visits.,” World Triathlon says.
World Triathlon adds that using OnePlan’s event tool can to help ease the workflow for event organisers and simplify the staging of the world’s biggest triathlon races. The site planning tool allows for collaborative planning between the World Triathlon Operations team, local sports department and LOC’s. Everything from interactive 3D mock-ups through to barrier placement and quantities can be set up. World Triathlon added that the “OnePlan for Triathlons” system can be used – for free – by any triathlon organizer around the world.
“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, right down to the smallest details,” says 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.”
