Session 2

The Wager

February 15, 2023

Racing and sports wagering has experienced major growth and transformation in recent years, with innovation, consolidation and change accelerating rapidly in local and global markets.

This session will bring together industry leaders across key racing jurisdictions and wagering markets to examine the biggest barriers and brightest opportunities which will impact the future of betting.  Delegates will explore:

·      the rise of simulcast, commingling and world pools/global totes;

·      the importance of technology innovation/digitalisation, and the aggregation of content and data rights, to the future success of industry stakeholders; and

·      the integration of wagering, media and entertainment, and the evolution of wagering marketing and approaches to customer development and retention.

We will hear from well-established operators as well as new players in the betting market.  What lies ahead here, and from where will the risks emerge?

The session will include short presentations on key issues and prevailing trends, followed by what promises to be a lively panel discussion.
