The Race Track Industry Program (RTIP) has gained worldwide recognition for its annual Global Symposium on Racing held in Tucson, Arizona each December since 1974. The Symposium attracts attendees representing Thoroughbred, Standardbred, American Quarter Horse, Greyhound, and Racino interests from across the United States and internationally. Topics presented during the Symposium include issues and trends of importance to the pari-mutuel industry such as international simulcasting, account wagering, marketing, track surfaces, track operations, new technologies and regulation. Symposium speakers and panel sessions represent the Who's Who of the racing industry as well as specialists from outside the field. The broad cross-section of North American and international participants, representing all pari-mutuel racing breeds, makes the Global Symposium on Racing the largest industry conference in the world.

Just curious......what do you remember most about the 43 year history of the annual Arizona Symposium?
