The University of Arizona's Race Track Industry Program Symposium will kick off on Monday, December 9, and runs through the 11th.
The annual Global Symposium on Racing held in Tucson, Arizona, has been held each December since 1974, and discusses racing topics across horse breeds, Greyhound and racinos.
Topics presented during the Symposium include issues and trends of importance to the pari-mutuel industry such as international simulcasting, account wagering, marketing, track surfaces, track operations, new technologies and regulation. Symposium speakers and panel sessions represent the who's who of the racing industry as well as specialists from outside the field. The broad cross-section of North American and international participants, representing all pari-mutuel racing breeds, makes the Global Symposium on Racing the largest industry conference in the world.
This year, topics include the likes of marketing, safety and welfare issues, horseplayers, equine populations, stakes grading, breed registration updates, television, and a session with trainers Bob Baffert and Todd Pletcher.
