When the pari-mutuel industry convened for the first International Simulcast Conference in 1994, these topics were never discussed: the internet and advance deposit wagering or sports betting, casino gambling within two hours (in most cases one) of almost every major race track, legalized sports betting, fantasy sports betting, a foal crop of only 23,000, social media, and high definition television.
So why attend the 2015 International Simulcast Conference? Well, obviously, there’s still work to do in a changing economic and competitive environment.
This year’s conference in Clearwater Beach once again will afford those deeply involved in daily simulcasting to exchange ideas and concerns in a wonderfully pleasant and easy setting.
