After two years of being held virtually, USA Triathlon’s Endurance Exchange will be held in person from Jan. 23 to 26, 2023 in Austin, Texas. Originally organized by Triathlon Business International, the conference continues to attract those who make their living through the sport, but also offers lots of interesting options for all levels of multisport enthusiasts with athlete-focussed sessions for all skill and experience levels. The virtual event held in 2022 attracted 1,000 attendees.
While the event is hosted by USA Triathlon, it has traditionally attracted a number of Canadian and other international triathlon stakeholders, providing an excellent opportunity to share best practices, network and collaborate. Canadian Lisa Bentley was the keynote speaker at last year’s event.
Registration for the 2023 event is now open at enduranceexchange.com.
With more than 30 live sessions presented by the industry’s top coaches, race directors and industry professionals, Endurance Exchange will feature a mix of hands-on, experiential learning workshops and lecture experiences to educate athletes, coaches, race directors and more members of the multisport community. Live session topics include: Defining Threshold Modalities for Cycling, Digital Marketing, Sustainability Best Practices, Underwater Video Analysis and a State of the Sport report. Each day of the conference begins with a roundtable breakfast.
In keeping with the desire to make the event attractive to more than just those who work in the industry, USA Triathlon plans to offer a number of workshops designed to help athletes achieve their goals.
