Standardbred Canada invites you to attend the first ever Standardbred Wagering Conference presented in conjunction with the Canadian Gaming Summit. This conference will focus exclusively on Standardbred wagering in Canada and is the only event in North America that will deal solely with the issue of Standardbred horse wagering. Regulators, operators, officials, participants and customers will be asked to come together to discuss concrete plans to develop and grow Standardbred wagering.

The conference kicks off with a full day of sessions on Tuesday, April 29, and continues for a half day on Wednesday, April 30 with various industry meetings in the afternoon. Delegates are invited and encouraged to stay for the final day of the Canadian Gaming Summit on Thursday, May 1.
