Bag Tags will exhibit at and also provide event passes for the 2016 Running USA Industry Conference in Los Angeles from February 10-12.

We look at it as a premier spot for us to exhibit and showcase the products we can offer to major event organizers.

Bag Tags Inc. will exhibit at the 2016 Running USA Industry Conference, which will take place from February 10-12 in Los Angeles. Additionally, Event Passes – a company in the Bag Tags family that focuses on custom access passes – will supply custom event credentials for the conference.

Running USA – a nonprofit organization that aims to advance the growth and success of the running industry – holds the industry conference annually. The event includes expert panelists, breakout sessions on best practices, annual awards, networking opportunities, and more, in addition to the exhibitors’ expo. Special events at the 2016 conference include the presentation of the Millennial Running Study findings, a keynote speech by three-time Olympian bobsledder Devon Harris, and more.            

Bag Tags decided to attend the conference and provide event passes as part of its efforts to get involved with more major race events in 2016 and beyond.

“We look at it as a premier spot for us to exhibit and showcase the products we can offer to major event organizers,” said Tom Yamaoka, director of sales and marketing for Bag Tags. “We’d really like to be doing a lot of major marathons.”

Event Passes already supplied event badges for the 2016 Chevron Houston Marathon in January. Additionally, Bag Tags has an ongoing relationship with the leading sports brand IRONMAN and has been involved with the annual Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

The Bag Tags booth at the Running USA conference will showcase sample event passes in addition to custom lanyards from Woven Lanyards, another company in the Bag Tags family. The booth will also likely have promotional giveaways of Bag Tags luggage tags, according to Yamaoka.    

Event Passes provides high-quality passes and badges for all types of events, and Woven Lanyards supplies one-of-a-kind custom lanyards for all occasions. Bag Tags Inc. offers 48-hour turnaround in supplying top-of-the-line bag tags to numerous sports teams, including USA Soccer and USA Swimming.
