THE first of its kind in Australia, HRA’s National Conference is shaping as a ‘must attend’ event.
Scheduled to be conducted on December 14 – Inter Dominion Final eve – the conference will host numerous prominent ‘keynote speakers’ and guests, including world champion driver Jody Jamieson.
Pleased with the early traction the conference has gathered, HRA Chairman Michael Taranto expects the event to be a major successf for the industry.
“The HRA Executive set an ambitious agenda for our inaugural Conference and I am pleased to reveal a world-class line up of speakers and leaders who will provide unique and thought provoking insights into critical issues facing our industry,” Taranto said.
“The Conference is not a lecture, it is designed to provoke thought and has ample opportunity for audience interaction – and I expect that this program will appeal to our entire industry”.
“While Jody Jamieson will be great, we are also indeed fortunate to have attracted a number of highly credentialed international speakers such as David Haslett from Sky Racing World, and Luke Kemeys, who created Boys Get Paid.”
Various topics will be discussed throughout the day, including Marketing and Promotion, Breeding, Industry Funding and a Youth Forum – which will feature National Trotguide’s award-winning social media ace, Ashlea Brennan.
To be held at Flemington Racecourse and beginning at 10am, with National Conference costs $30 a head, which covers the conference, lunch, a cocktail function and a $5 donation to the Women’s Cancer Foundation.
Taranto has praised several businesses for their valuable sponsorship, which has help keep cost to a minimum.
“In addition to the great support from speakers wanting to be involved, we are also indebted to the generous financial contribution of our sponsors,” Taranto said. “Lexus of Parramatta, Pointon Partner Lawyers and Garrard’s Horse and Hound have confirmed their financial commitments, along with Tabcorp, Sky Racing World, Aldebaran Park and Alabar Australia.
“These sponsors assist in subsidising the Conference costs and providing such outstanding value for attendees.”
