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.
