In a world where customers are more connected, more tech savvy and more demanding than ever before, innovation has never been so crucial. Increasing consumer expectations and the rate of technological change makes it harder to keep lottery players engaged and recruit new generations. EL’s bi-annual Innovation Seminar is the industry’s largest gathering of lottery innovation practitioners and with fully tailored content it is one event not to miss. This year we are hosted by Veikkaus, one of the most innovative lotteries in EL. The event has been completely re-designed to focus on practical, hands on experiences. Your time will be split between inspiring keynote presentations and classroom pod sessions in small groups. You will not only learn about the latest trends, but also get to experiment with the new technologies and apply them to your lottery.
