Become an Event Partner

In order to sustain and grow the program, the REC Foundation is always interested in developing relationships with new Event Partners (EPs). Becoming an Event Partner is a great opportunity for individuals who share our passion for robotics and seek to establish a revenue stream to sustain and grow their own robotics program. As a first step, speak to your local Regional Support Manager to share your interest and learn more about the opportunities.

RobotEvents.Com Training Resources

RobotEvents.com provides teams and Event Partners with broad functionality throughout, providing an infrastructure that can grow seamlessly with the VEX IQ Challenge, VEX Robotics Competition, and VEX U programs. The following resources have been created to help familiarize users with the website.

Event Payments and Process

All VEX IQ Challenge, VEX Robotics Competition, and VEX U teams must register as an official team and register for any events at RobotEvents.com. Therefore, Event Partners must post their events at RobotEvents.com and there is no charge to use the site. EPs incur the cost of hosting their events and many of them ask teams for a registration fee to cover these costs. EPs may set a fee for their event when creating it in RobotEvents.com.

$5 Flat Fee

RobotEvents.com includes a flat $5 fee per registration for events. This fee structure will not cover all the costs of site maintenance, enhancements, processing, and accounting, but it will enable the REC Foundation to continue to make enhancements to the RobotEvents.com website and provide a better experience for all our teams and partners using the site. Event Partners are encouraged to build this cost into their event fees. The REC Foundation continues to lead the industry as the most affordable program of its kind and with record growth. Improvements must be made to ensure our program succeeds for years to come.

Event Fees

It is up to the Event Partner to determine what they need to charge to cover their local costs, but most one-day event fees range from $50-$100 per team and nearly all are less than $150 per team. Events that span more than one day and events held at special locations may charge more. Most leagues charge as though a team is playing in a tournament. Contact your Regional Support Manager for more details, especially teams outside the USA.
