Elkton, MD---“Is Racing Keeping Pace with Technology” will be the theme of the 22nd annual International Simulcast Conference in Delray Beach, Fla., on Sept. 29-Oct. 1.
The conference, which will be held at the Marriott Delray Beach, will feature presentations and discussions on available technology and how it can be used to the benefit or detriment of pari-mutuel racing.
As technology continuously exercises increased impact on consumer trends, conference sessions will be devoted to the influence of technology from a competitive perspective, in enhancing the viewing and wagering experience, and what response technology may require for the industry to stay current with consumer demands.
Among the areas to be discussed:
• Mobile device use on-track
• High definition production and home delivery
• Fan and bettor experience
The International Simulcast Conference is co-sponsored by the TRA and Harness Tracks of America, in association with the American Greyhound Track Operators Association. Conference attendance requires registration with the TRA.
