LA JOLLA, CA (July 19, 2021) — Events.com, a mobile-first event management and registration platform, today announced its partnership with Alpha Win, formerly known as HITS Endurance. Alpha Win has grown to include the 2021 Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort Half Marathon. Alpha Win currently uses Events.com as the official registration platform for its endurance race series. Participants in the new Hollywood Beach, Florida event can now register via Events.com.
“We are thrilled to work with the industry-leading event organizers from Alpha Win and to support the athletes competing at the new Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort Half Marathon,” said Stephen Partridge, Events.com’s co-founder and president. “With our innovative mobile event check-in, race sponsorship, digital marketing, and event management tools, we help make competitive events more engaging for participants and impactful for sponsors around the world.”
Events.com’s digital tools help event organizers like Alpha Win create and manage both live, virtual, and hybrid events within one user-friendly mobile platform. The company supports hundreds of thousands of event organizers around the world, delivering next-generation ticketing, registration, challenge, marketing, discovery, and sponsorship tools. This includes features specific to endurance events, such as organization-level reporting and management and invitations to seamlessly transition athletes who have deferred or transferred from events that organizers canceled in 2020, and Events.com also provides engagement tools that incentivize athletes to loop in their training communities.
Open to all athletes, the inaugural 2021 Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort Half Marathon features swimming and running competitions held over two days on December 11 & 12, 2021. Awards will be presented to top finishers in each discipline, as well as to the fastest combined times. The race features the backdrop of the iconic Hollywood Beach Boardwalk in front of the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort. In 2022, the race will transition to an annual Half Marathon Championship, with all athletes participating in the 2021 race automatically qualifying to race in 2022.
“We think the event industry is primed to help people get back to racing after a year of canceled events during the pandemic,” said Tommy Struzzieri, Founder of Alpha Win. “We look forward to partnering with Events.com to make race registration simple for all participants. Working with Events.com feels like an extension of our own team and choosing their platform was an easy decision after testing the technology and seeing how they’ve successfully developed partnerships with events globally.”
