APLA 2012 Sponsors Tatts Lotteries and APLA would like to acknowledge the support of the major sponsors of APLA 2012.


The Business Program for APLA 2012 will encompass a range of strategic presentations aimed at equipping lotteries to chart a successful course for the future, and flexibly adapt to increasingly dynamic operating scenarios.

Industry Guest Speakers and Panel Sessions will focus on the changes and challenges that are affecting our operating environment including:

  • socio-economic trends
  • government policy and regulation
  • changing demographics and consumer preferences
  • increased and new competition
  • social responsibility and ethical expectations
  • impact of new technologies, online trends and social media.

Speakers will include lottery industry leaders, APLA and WLA contributors, and industry experts across a range of business disciplines.

We have introduced a Lottery Case Studies Workshop which will be moderated by Michelle Carinci, CEO of Lottotech Ltd., Mauritius. We have also scheduled popular Daily Debates to enable lively discussion between delegates and industry partners.
