EQUINE SUMMIT: Where did the idea come from?
on 27 October 2017
Mary Delaney of Glanbia explains how the idea for the Equine Summit was born

THE concept of the Equine Summit was born from a conversation between my colleagues Joanne Hurley, Nikki Wallace and I. Our goal was to bring a thought leadership event to the equine industry as we have witnessed the powerful impact of similar events in the agri-food sector. Both the thoroughbred and sport horse sectors of the industry are of equal importance to our business and we saw this as a unique opportunity to bring the sectors together to share collective knowledge and discuss ways to collaborate and drive this industry forward.

Alltech are known globally as innovators and pioneers in the area of research. They have worked with GAIN for over 30 years and we felt the Equine Summit would be an exciting project to work together on. Alltech were delighted to support the event as they too believed in the vision of the Equine Summit – Striving for Global Excellence. Grant Thornton and The Irish Field did not hesitate in supporting this venture also and all four partners have worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the conference. We all see the importance and benefit of bringing together industry leaders to discuss topics of critical importance to the equine sector as we enter a period of immense change.
