The world’s first international horse racing convention, Equestricon™ will feature more than 45 panels, seminars, workshops, and events. The convention will be held August 13-15 at the Saratoga Springs City Center, at the height of Saratoga’s much anticipated 2017 racing season. Programming will be geared toward those interested in everything from racing photography to breeding and ownership.
“We feel like we’ve put together the most comprehensive program possible — and we’re still adding more to the schedule,” said Equestricon co-founder Justin Nicholson in a statement. “This will truly be an unprecedented opportunity for people to immerse themselves, regardless of their particular interest, in this amazing sport of ours.”
Two-day admission for the Equestricon™ general session includes access to the main convention hall, live entertainment, over 50 vendor booths, on-site networking events, interactive displays, equine artists, racing authors, and other educational attractions for fans, horseplayers, and stakeholders. The “Panel Pass” is sold separately and features panels with prominent industry personalities who will discuss everything from aftercare to media and marketing to betting to getting a job in racing.
Other ticket add-ons include an “Autograph Pass” and the chance to participate in exclusive tours of the Fasig-Tipton sales ground and the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, in addition to attending a “Fashion Showcase” brunch.
