The Boston Run Show is shortlisted for ‘best international show’

Raccoon Media Group has been shortlisted for this year’s Association Of Event Organiser’s (AEO) Excellence Awards. The Boston Run Show has been recognized and is shortlisted as a finalist for the Best International Show – Americas category. The awards program will celebrate and honor the best in the industry – expos that truly shined brightly in the past year with new marketing programs, saw commercial success, delivered a highly engaging (fun) show or created/maintained a great community or culture.

The debut of the Boston Run Show in partnership with Boston.com and the Boston Athletic Association was hosted at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA in February 2023 and received over 18,000 ticket registrations. Despite the coldest weekend the city had seen for seven years, the show welcomed close to 10,000 visitors out of the cold and into the warm expo. The show’s two stages played host to Olympians and athletes from across the world of running including Sally McRae, Carl Lewis, Dean Karnazes, Dave McGillivray and Jenna Prandini. The line-up of speakers enthralled packed theatres with the highs, lows, achievements, and failures from a life spent running. The city’s runners shopped for new gear, tech and nutrition from leading brands and found new races to sign up to at the Events Village. The event is strategically timed to prepare runners for the city’s marathon and promote the benefits running to new audiences who are looking to start.

Mike Seaman, CEO at Raccoon Media Group commented: “I am so incredibly proud of the team here at Raccoon and it is fantastic to see us developing relationships in the USA and being recognized by the AEO Excellence Awards. Good luck to the other nominees and we look forward to the winners being announced next month.”

The Boston Run Show will return for its third edition, March 1-2 2025 at the Boston Exhibition & Exhibition Center where it will collocate with The Boston Outdoor Expo for the first time. For more information about other Raccoon Media Group events visit www.raccoonmediagroup.com.
