Emerging from the most disruptive period in 75 years, Team Lottery is poised to consolidate its position as the game of the people and for the people.   It's a time for profound optimism and a bold vision as the world looks for leadership on every front.  And when it comes to consumer products and games-of-chance, Lottery is the leader, so let's map the course that will inspire everyone to get on board the lottery fan-train.  Join us as we come together to set the stage for  The Golden Era of Lottery. Moving away from Multi-channel, Omni-channel and "channels" altogether.  Enter the Metaverse of "New Retail" where the focus is on the consumer experience, presence is ubiquitous, and content matters more than ever. 

Join us in Nashville for what will be by far the biggest and most exciting PGRI event ever.  The conference hotel (Hermitage) is sold out of our room block.  There are lots of nearby hotels (at a variety of price-points), within easy walking distance.  E-mail us if you would like a list with website addresses and phone numbers. or Phone 425-449-3000
