Welcome to Miami and Lottery Expo: Tom Delacenserie, Secretary, Florida Lottery

Tom Delacenserie, Secretary, Florida Lottery Industry Collaboration as the key to unlocking the power of API/Cashless/In-Lane and other Retail Modernization initiatives

Special Session:  

The Promise of API (Application Programming Interface) Technology

Presentations on the urgency to implement / meaning and purpose of APIs will be followed by a special sessionthat includes audience Q & A.  APIs are the key component to building the IT platform that supports the rapid deployment of technological innovation across the board.How and why will APIs increase Lottery sales and net funds to beneficiaries - what are the costs and risks as well as the benefits to implementation of APIs? This topic was introduced at PGRI Smart-Tech in April, has gained momentum over the past few months, and is now at a point where concrete action-plans are being shaped. It’s time to take it “to the next level” - to connect the dots and relate objectives like in-lane sales, cashless transactions, standardized reports and audits for multi-state retailers, and more ... to the technologies that enable them. The key to unlocking the transformative power of APIs is multi-state collaboration and funding. How do we get there?

Panel Discussion: Stakeholder Relations: How might Lottery do a better job of engendering support from the national media and legislators at the federal as well as state levels? Who is advocating with a singular voice for those values and interests which are shared by all lotteries? Who is monitoring gaming legislation and court cases that impacts us all? How do we counter all the publicity of other gaming sectors with positive publicity for Lottery? Could our industry benefit if we had a national government affairs and PR effort? Is it time for a national branding campaign? How can we connect with and forge a more positive relationship with retailer stakeholders and associations; any Silver Bullet to defuse NACS opposition or otherwise overcome that obstacle?

On the Globalization of Gaming – How it Impacts State Lotteries in the U.S.

3:00 pm Coffee Break Pompeii Ballroom

Panel Discussion: The Impact of Daily Fantasy Sports, Pokémon GO, and other pop game phenoms on the broader games-of-chance industry and Lottery

How might popular new games impact Lottery? And even if the short-term impact on lottery spend is not significant, how might it reshape the play-styles of the twenty-somethings who we expect to become lottery players in their thirties and forties? How can we ensure that Lottery retains its appeal to consumers whose game-playing options have increased and changed so dramatically over the past few years? Too, as online gaming in other forms increases in popularity and acceptability, won’t that cause legislators to look more favorably on Lottery’s need to make its products available online? Are there game attributes (that comply with Lottery random logic)

of these new games that can be applied to Lottery?

Special Session: Presentations on Retail Modernization to be followed by Interactive Discussion

Modernizing the lottery at Retail: Retail is reinventing itself for the modern consumer. CPG (Consumer Packaged Goods) companies are helping them do it, and we can’t expect them to look out for our interests. Lottery needs to take the leadership role in this paradigm shift that will end upre-positioning the way products and services are sold at retail. Too, "convenience" has become the modern consumers' priority. That that will give rise to a new generation of 21st centuryconveniencestores which should represent an opportunity for Lottery. How can Lottery apply digital technology to enhance the player experience, how can Lottery create more co-promotions to help retailers achieve their own goals to sell more and drive store-traffic,and how can Lottery otherwise align with the modernization of the retail shopping experience?

Very sadly, this award ceremony will be in memoriam.  Arch Gleason passed away on the night of Friday July 1.   In addition to being an industry giant for more than 25 years, in addition to tirelessly serving the industry associations in almost all of the offices up to and including president, Arch Gleason was the most genuinely kind and thoughtful person you could know.  This spirit of generosity and compassionate wisdom engendered such strong feelings of affection among his countless friends.  Our prayers and condolences go out especially to Arch’s family
