Savage Races chooses Conquest Events Photos as its exclusive photo technology through its 2019 Season!

May 2, 2018

Washington, D.C. – SweatWorks, the digital agency that is behind Conquest Events, has been chosen by Savage Race for an exclusive two year partnership.  Savage Race, well known for its obstacle innovation, now innovates with technology by becoming the first major obstacle course race to exclusively utilize facial recognition for participant tagging.

“Savage Race has experienced consistent growth over the last few years with a customer-first strategy.  We are excited to partner with a brand who constantly seeks to improve their event experience and values innovation.  Conquest Events Photos, with its industry leading facial recognition technology, will be used as the exclusive media platform at Savage Race,” said Mohammed Iqbal, Founder and CEO at SweatWorks.

By choosing to lead with facial recognition, photographers can focus on capturing Savage Race participants at their best moments – rather than aim for bibs or barcodes, they can now shoot for faces.  “Our photographers are no longer limited to sitting by timing mats or aiming for bibs and barcodes, instead we can focus on capturing the experience,” says Kimberly D’Angiolillo, lead photographer for Savage Race.

“Over the years, Savage Race has tried just about every event photography platform out there. In our experience, Conquest Events Photos has been able to perform the best. The technology is great, and it keeps improving.” – Sam Abbitt, Savage Race CEO and Co-founder.
