Asia Lottery Expo to debut at G2E Asia

The three-day Asia Lottery Expo and Forum will make its official debut at G2E Asia in May, expanding on a forum held this year, with the aim of improving lottery cooperation across the region.

The Asia Lottery Expo & Forum aims to deliver a business, learning and networking platform exclusively designed for lottery professionals, and provide an opportunity for technology and solution providers to showcase their current and upcoming game designs, platforms, systems, capabilities and innovations.

The event will mark a “new stage for regional lottery cooperation and development,” said Professor Su Guojing, founder of the China Lottery Industry Salon, in a release.

Asia-Pacific’s lottery industry reported total sales of $107.7 billion in 2016, according to the World Lottery Association. The August 2017 edition of WLA Magazine additionally reported global lottery sales up by 0.9 percent in the first quarter of 2017, with sales in Africa, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region soaring by 9.4 percent, 5.8 percent and 5.4 percent, respectively.

Mainland China registered cumulative lottery sales of $52.7 billion in the first ten months of 2017, at a year-on-year growth of 7.7  percent, including welfare lottery sales of $26.8 billion and sports lottery sales of $25.9 billion.

The forum will officially conclude with the industry’s first-ever networking session created exclusively for lottery professionals.
