The Horseracing Industry Conference 2018

An Informed Future: Enhancing industry performance through evidence-based decision-making

The ever-growing complexities of the business and sporting environment present a number of challenges to the UK horseracing industry. Facing increasing competition from other sporting and leisure activities, if horseracing is to thrive and meet future challenges, it needs to make greater use of the insights derived from sophisticated research.

The Horseracing Industry Conference provides an ideal platform to learn how the application of cutting-edge research can help to inform decision-making, address key issues, identify and exploit opportunities, develop robust strategy and support the growth of the industry.

Keynote Speaker: Nick Rust, Chief Executive of the British Horseracing Authority 

Discussion will cover Strategy, Staffing and Equine Welfare and will be led by the British Horseracing Authority and educators and researchers from the University of Liverpool.
Brand new research will be presented by students of the University’s Thoroughbred Horseracing Industries MBA (THIMBA) which prepares students for senior management and leadership roles.

Topics are likely to include:

- Demand for horseracing
- Stable staff recruitment, training and retention
- The multiskilling concept
- Jockey gender
- Racecourse safety
- The challenges of leveraging research

Join us to network with colleagues from the sector and higher education.

The conference is ideal if you work as a decision-maker and influencer in the horseracing industry.

Delivered by the University of Liverpool in partnership with the Racing Foundation. 

Date: 30 January 2018

Venue: Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS

Price: £50 (if the cost is a barrier to racing charities and will prevent them from sending members of staff or representatives, the Racing Foundation has agreed to reimburse the entry fee on proof of attendance. Please contact for eligibility).
