SILVER SPONSORS & EXHIBITOR
LOTTERY EXPO 2012 explodes on the scene. Registrations now exceed 250 people and more are signing up every day. They are coming to hear world-class speakers who are also industry leaders tackle some of the industry's trickiest issues, including:
-- Private Manager Agreement versus traditional government operator model: Pros and Cons. What exactly can a Private Manager (PM) do that the government lottery operator can't do? Will the trend towards PM cause legislators to ask that question and give their government operators more flexibility to act more entrepreneurially, to apply a more reasoned risk-assessment model that supports change and innovation? How will the introduction of this new management model change the industry for everyone? Or will it?
Players Clubs and Loyalty Programs are a fabulous step in the right direction. But what's next? How can lotteries increase player registration in Clubs and Loyalty Programs? And how can lotteries leverage that registered player relationship into increased sales?
Can commercial partners who compete with each other also "play well together"? As new ideas and innovations come from a wider variety of commercial partners, the need for those commercial partners to work together for the benefit of their customers increases. Lotteries need their commercial partners to work together to enable integration of new games, host new transaction-processing for non-traditional games and POS's, and otherwise get creative to facilitate innovation and assimilate new products and services.
Engaging retailer support for multi-channel distribution. The multi-channel approach is both necessary and inevitable. The opposition of NACS (association of convenience stores) continues to be a big obstacle in the U.S. But there ARE solutions and as an industry we need to power through this most perplexing of challenges.
How and why is the internet so much more than a "channel for distribution"?
Visionary leaders are using the internet as a communications hub, a medium that revolutionizes the relationship between lottery operator and consumer. The internet is not just a POS or channel of distribution. It is the platform that enables lottery to migrate to a comprehensive CRM (Customer Relationship Management) approach to the business that turns an anonymous player base into a socially connected community of engaged customers.
Schedule: Monday, October 22: 5:00: Opening Night Reception Tues, Oct. 23: U.S. focused conference sessions Weds, Oct. 24: Joint U.S. and Latin America Sessions Thurs, Oct. 25: Focus on Latin America Three Receptions and luncheons provide lots of time to visit with colleagues.
The gaming, gambling, and lottery industry is being reshaped as we speak. Changes in technology, regulations, and consumer tastes are creating tremendous opportunity just as they are obsoleting so much of what has worked in the past. Team Lottery is in the position to take action and shape its destiny - which is a very good thing because it may well be that the only way to predict the future is to be the ones who create it.
Lottery Expo will be a very special program, including world-class speakers from all around the world, an imaginative new approach to eliciting fresh insights and provocative discussion, a special track for Latin American Lotteries to complement the traditional focus on North American lotteries, three receptions, three luncheons, three breakfasts (i.e. lots of time to meet with colleagues and discuss the topics of the day), and most of all a mission to make a real difference in the government gaming. Simultaneous translations for Latin American, Caribbean, and Mexican attendees. This will be a uniquely great conference experience - Please come!
One of our conference themes is: How can a government lottery integrate the entrepreneurial zeal of a tech start-up when it must comply with a confounding array of government constraints? I asked our commercial sponsors for help in finding a truly world-class expert outside of the lottery industry who could help us understand these issues from a fresh, but on-point perspective.
The Best Way to Predict the Future is to Create it.Abraham Lincoln
