Global Symposium on Racing to Be Streamed Live Online
Tucson, AZ - For the first time, The University of Arizona's Race Track Industry Program (RTIP) Global Symposium on Racing, scheduled for Dec. 6 – 8, 2021, will be streamed live online, so that those unable to attend the conference in person will still be able to “attend” the panel sessions.
Roberts Communications Network (RCN) will make the stream available on the Racetrack Television Network (RTN), with all proceeds from the sales going back to the RTIP.
“The Global Symposium on Racing is the pre-eminent racing conference, and we are very excited to be able to bring it to people around the world,” said RCN and RTN President and CEO Todd Roberts. “Furthermore, we felt it was very important to donate the money generated by the sales back to the RTIP program to help support everything they do for the industry.”
The agenda for this year's Symposium includes panels on wide ranging topics, including various reports from the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act (HISA), industry leaders sharing their three-year plan, ways to increase field size, seizing the fixed odds and sports betting opportunities, growing sponsorship revenue, and much more.
“We are thrilled to stream the Symposium to a global audience for the first time,” said RTIP Chair Robert Hartman. “While there will be a huge turnout of industry attendees, we also understand that travel may not be possible for some, and felt it was important to make these panel sessions available to everyone. We are very appreciative of RCN's help in this endeavor and especially their generosity in donating all of the proceeds back to the Program.”
The live streaming package, which also includes archived sessions of each panel, will be available for a $195 purchase on the RTN.tv website, enabling people to watch on tablets, smartphones, and PC's, and on televisions through Roku devices and Amazon Fire TV.
