Conference for race organisers to go online

MPW conference will focus on safety of mass events

Mass Participation World holds its annual Conference on 10 & 11 December as an online event.

Registration will open next Wednesday 18 November.

Among subjects discussed will be recent research from Japan showing results from Covid-safe events with a total of over half a million participants and finding only one recorded post-event case of Covid-19.

MPW is working on an initiative to aggregate as many such studies and individual event information across the globe and all verticals to hopefully provide data for organisers to share with authorities which may help gain permissions for more events to take place.

If you have staged an event in the past six months and would like to contribute please email with the subject “Event Research”. Findings will be presented at the MPW Annual Conference.
