|Announcing the new game, Rebecca Paul Hargrove, president of the Tennessee Lottery, explained, “Lotteries across the country came together and listened to what players wanted.”|
Government Lotteries and their commercial partners have become the market leaders. Instead of responding to change as it occurs in the market-place, Team Lottery is leading the charge with innovative approaches to brand extensions, integrating multi-media strategies for new customer-acquisition and core customer relationship management, aligning game development and marketing strategies with real-world player profiles instead of old-school demographic segmentation, and converting ‘big data’ into better products delivered at the right time, in the right place, to the right consumer. All the pieces are in place for Team Lottery to consolidate its position as the most progressive, exciting, and trusted operator in the games-of-chance industry.
Steve Jobs once said “The only ones crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do”. PGRI Conferences are about giving voice to the ideas that matter most, the ideas that are making an impact, the ideas that may even be changing the world of government-gaming. Join is in New York to be a part of the movement to reinvent Lottery for the modern consumer-driven market-place.
Congratulations to David Gale and Team NASPL for producing the fabulous conference and trade-show event at Atlantic City! Susan and I so enjoyed seeing you all there. The induction of Terry Rich as President of NASPL, and Terry’s acceptance speech as inspirational “call-to-action” was one of many high-lights to the program. The Hall of Fame ceremony for Gary Grief was another. And the chance to visit with and learn from our colleagues is always a privilege. Next up is the World Lottery Summit Nov. 2 to 5 in Rome. (See http://www.wls2014.com for complete info about program, speakers, registration, etc.) Held only every other year, the WLS is the biggest event in the lottery industry.
