General Info

 

A link to the meeting will be sent to participants shortly before the start of the presentation. This presentation will not be recorded.

This session will run from 7:30pm-9:00pm Eastern Time.

Becoming an Event Partner and hosting your own VEX VRC, VIQRC, or VEXU competitions is a step that many may wish to take - and is one that may be easier than you think! In addition to giving local teams an opportunity to compete, hosting a competition can also become an important component to the sustainability and growth of your program. 

The purpose of this roughly 1 hour training (with additional time for Q&A) is to provide an overview of the role of an Event Partner, how to get started on planning a competition, the steps involved for posting an event on RobotEvents for other teams to register for, and finally a quick overview of the VEX Tournament Manager software which runs the scoring and audio/visual aspects of an event. This presentation is geared for EPs and their key volunteers that may have some experience as an EP but are looking for a refresher webinar. There will be time at the end of the presentation for any questions attendees may have about event management or Tournament Manager.

Before the meeting, attendees are advised to please check over the EP Guide and the Event Qualifying Criteria, and you may also wish to download VEX Tournament Manager so you can more easily follow along during the Tournament Manager section,

The EP guide will give you an overview of the Event Partner role and responsibilities, the Qualifying Criteria outlinse the requirements for events, and VEX Tournament Manager is the software used to manage a competition. 

If there are others you know of who may be interested in this training, please share this RobotEvents posting with them and ask they to register!

This webinar is not region-specific - the content should be applicable to all regions.

A link to the webinar will be sent to registered individuals prior to the start time.
