The sixth annual Horseracing Industry Conference will be returning to York Racecourse on Thursday, June 1, 2023, the Racing Foundation and University of Liverpool Management School announced on Tuesday.

‘Modernising racing: How far and how fast?’ is the focus of the conference, which will bring together experts from both within and outside of the racing industry. Refreshments will be served, as well as a two-course lunch, followed by a champagne reception. Tickets are £55 and can be purchased on the Racing Foundation’s website.

Rob Hezel, Chief Executive at the Racing Foundation, said, “The Racing Foundation is delighted to announce the date for the sixth annual Horseracing Industry Conference which will be delivered with a focus on minimising the event’s environmental impact.


“The 2023 conference comes at a crucial time for British racing as it awaits publication of the sport’s new strategy.

“The pace of societal change we are experiencing today demands the industry thinks creatively and boldly to safeguard the sport for tomorrow.

“I know this year’s topic, ‘Modernising racing: How far and how fast?’ will offer important insight and generate engaging debate at the conference. I look forward to the contributions from keynotes speakers, industry leaders and the conference delegates.”

Neil Coster, Director of Studies for the Thoroughbred Horseracing Industries MBA at the University of Liverpool Management School, said, “The University of Liverpool Management School is looking forward to welcoming this year’s delegates to York Racecourse for the annual Horseracing Industry Conference.

“The 2023 conference will welcome experts outside of the world of racing as well as those within it, embracing innovative thinking often overlooked in racing.

“In past years, the conversation surrounding the conference topics transcends well beyond the keynote talks. I look forward to again discussing racing’s challenges with this year’s delegates during the networking sessions throughout the day.

“The conference is a superb continual professional development opportunity for all working in, or passionate about, the sport of horseracing.”
