International Timers Conference 2019

Exciting get-together in Frankfurt

„In 10 years of company history, this was definitely one of my highlights!” The résumé from RACE RESULT CEO Soenke Petersen after two exciting days in Frankfurt was unequivocal.
Timers from all around the world had joined the Conference to get an exclusive insight into the company. 53 timing companies from 23 countries were represented. What are the big challenges and goals in developing timing hardware? What does it take to build a scalable software and calculate millions of results on webservers every month? Soenke Petersen and CTO Nikias Klohr spoke about those challenges. The race|result support team gave vivid examples of how the complete solution is used in high-class sports events. In addition, John Hovius from Sportstats explained how he times the whole Rock’n’Roll Marathon Series in North America with a staff of only four people. And Daniel Gallaher from RaceTracker (Norway) talked about timing the ultimate Triathlon on the planet, Norseman Xtreme Triathlon. During the inaugural “RACE RESULT Timers Olympics” the participants could prove their software skills.
Precision, Passion and German Engineering. The Conference pictured the race|result company slogan. It brought together timers from all over the world who maybe never would have met – for networking, sharing experiences and getting a motivating kick-off into the new timing season. 
Thanks everybody for joining, it was an honor to meet you!
