Park Tool will not offer its popular Tech Summit training for professional mechanics in 2014. They plan to return in 2015.
“We are going to take a year to re-evaluate, re-design and re-invigorate the Park Tool Tech Summit,” said Bill Armas, Director of Marketing for Park Tool Co. “Tech Summit is a partnership between eight separate companies that work together to present a terrific training experience for professional bike mechanics,” Armas continued. “As a group, we have decided to take a year off and spend some time thinking about how to make this experience even better for those who attend.” All eight of the presenting brands in 2013 want to return in 2015.
Attendance is not the issue. The 2013 Tech Summits were as well attended as any in the past. Many shops rely on Tech Summit to keep their mechanics up to date on how to service the latest technologies. Armas said, “We know that there will be some disappointment regarding this decision. But in the long term, we believe that a hiatus will serve the best interests of everyone involved. We are looking forward to a great event in 2015.”
