1/31 -  {Updated} ROAD WARRIOR DIRECTORY - A continuing project - this directory of traveling race series, management companies, and road warrior contractors.  Many are friends of OPE and this directory is offered free in the spirit of helping the industry.   

Helping Events Grow + Innovate 

On Path Events helps race + other event organizations plan for the long-term and execute in the short-term.  OPE takes on long-term projects with interesting and complex series, from growing mid-size series to some of the largest and most well-known events in the country.  All of this is done with one mindset - to learn the best trends and practices, and improve efficiency and quality across the events industry.

What does this mean for you?  Perhaps you're a company that needs to bring in some firepower around some key race days and don't just want a casual 'weekend warrior' crew.  Or perhaps you're the director of an established but ambitious event, used to wearing every hat.  You've been around for a little bit, and you want some help fine-tuning your operation so you can expand.

Or maybe you're not there right now - and right now you just need someone who can help you get there, picking a few of the hats you wear every day and helping you focus on how to get to where you need to be.  You may want to tie it all together more or find and try out some new ideas.   You need someone who knows a little bit about everything in the industry and can hop right in,  connect you with the best vendors (and vet the ones you have),  execute, and help you focus on to the long-term.  Let us help you get "On Path".
