Lotteries Reshape the Games-of-Chance Industry 





       SILVER Sponsors



The theme of the conference is

What’s your Why?

Why do we do what we do – as an industry and also as individuals who are dedicated to supporting the mission of Lottery. That basic brand-defining question will serve as a catalyst for exploring ways to shape the image of Lottery not just with our players and close circle of supportive stakeholders, but with legislators, general media, general public, and the broadest possible audience. Sports-betting: How will it affect the broader games-of-chance industry, how will it impact Lottery in particular, and what should we do about it.
