Dear Lottery Associate:
PGRIs SMART-TECH is always an important forum for promoting ideas to make the lotteries more successful. Again this year, PGRI will strive, especially, to make SMART-Tech 2004 a springboard for lotteries to see new ways to help their states close the gap between budgetary needs and serious shortfalls in traditional state revenues. From cutting edge ideas to better application of well know concepts, SMART-TECH will help lotteries and suppliers look ahead and be more successful.
Revenue growth comes in many forms including, expansion of product offerings based on successes elsewhere, improved marketing of existing products, improved retailer sales strategies, improved advertising, reduced operating costs and the addition of products new to the lottery industry. All of these strategies for growth will be explored by the experts participating in the program.
We look forward to your contribution to helping the lotteries grow by participating in SMART-Tech 2004.
