Timers can get a debrief on the recently completed Timer marketing research survey by watching the recorded session below. More than 160 timers participated in this year’s survey. Topics covered include general timer business attributes, impacts of Covid-19, timer strategies, and timers’ use of race day technology.
One of the most important takeaways is that now is the timer for timers to proactively approach races with comprehensive race services beyond traditional timing and scoring events. Otherwise, another timer might beat you to it.
Key Timer Takeaway: Expect increased competition and be proactive and creative with your races.
