EL INDUSTRY DAYS 2018

Prague, June 4-6, 2018 : “Navigating towards digital opportunity” is the theme that sets the course for the EL Industry Days 2018.

The beautiful city of Prague will be the background scenery for finding answers to the question of how traditional lotteries can reinvent themselves in the digital world.

The EL Industry Days 2018 in Prague is a call to all lottery professionals to envision the future of digital in our sector and to share their knowledge and experience of the opportunities and challenges that face us in this field. Lotteries and the Partner/Suppliers will have the chance to interact and collaborate to provide together solutions for the future of gaming in the digital space and to secure the interests of the players.

With the share of sales over the internet growing, it is clear that the return on investment from improving the digital experience will be key. We will go beyond the ‘omnichannel’ discussion by discussing the very specific new challenges that arise and how to respond to them, notably through intelligent systems design, addressing security risks and the question of digital convergence.

Once every two years, the EL Industry Days provides the Partner/Suppliers with the opportunity to interact with lottery executives and share their visions for the future. They will also share their experiences gained from partnering, developing and supporting the work with lottery clients across the world. Together we will be navigating towards digital opportunities.

Digital is rightly regarded as the first and foremost means of thorough personalisation of the products, providing for tailored, customised experiences. We will explore how this can go hand in hand with the lotteries’ first and foremost mission: protection players and providing a safe and secure offering.

Through examination of a new study designed specifically for EL, we will also discuss the specific needs of the this new generation, the omnipresent ‘Millenials’ who represent a new critical generation with different player habits from the ones that precede them.

EL will also hold its annual General Assembly during the Industry Days. This Assembly will give you the opportunity to interact and engage with the Association’ss board. Your vote on important topics will be highly awarded.

This year our emphasis will be on Digital opportunities. If you care about your digital opportunities and want to meet your colleagues … join us in Prague!

Le thème « En route vers les opportunités numériques » sera le fil directeur de ces EL Industry Days 2018, qui auront lieu au Marriott Hotel de Prague du 4 au 6 juin et qui s’achèveront par l’assemblée générale d’EL le dernier jour, le 6 juin 2018.

La magnifique ville de Prague servira de décor de fond tandis que les participants chercheront des réponses à la question de la réinvention des loteries traditionnelles dans un monde numérique. EL et Sazka, en qualité d’organisatrices, ainsi que des partenaires premium et semi-premium, travaillent actuellement pour finaliser les détails du programme et en faire l’événement révélateur et stratégique de l’année 2018.

Robert Chvatal, PDG de Sazka, a hâte d’y être : « Sazka et moi-même sommes fiers d’accueillir les Industry Days 2018 d’EL dans la ville historique de Prague, capitale de la République tchèque. Le thème des Industry Days 2018 reflète ma conviction personnelle qui est que la numérisation représente à la fois une tendance et un défi pour tous les opérateurs de loteries traditionnels. Le défi auquel nous faisons tous face et que nous devons tous relever. Je suis convaincu que les EL Industry Days 2018 seront une source d’inspiration, et un rassemblement mémorable pour tous les membres d’EL participants. »

« Les Industry Days sont un événement important dans le calendrier d’European Lotteries », a déclaré le secrétaire général Arjan van ’t Veer. « Ces journées sont une occasion de se réunir entre collègues et amis, de parler et d’écouter les importants développements communiqués par les conférenciers et partenaires d’EL.

J’encourage nos membres à être à la hauteur des valeurs d’EL : responsabilité, viabilité/ société et intégrité, y compris dans les opportunités numériques à venir. Durant les prochains Industry Days 2018, les participants vont découvrir ces valeurs dans les nouveaux développements. »

EL Industry Days 2018

“Abrirse paso hacia las oportunidades digitales” es el tema que marca el curso de los EL Industry Days 2018 (Días de la industria EL 2018), que se celebrarán en el Marriott Hotel del centro de Praga del 4 al 6 de junio de 2018 y que se cerrarán con una Asamblea general de EL, que tendrá lugar el último día, el 6 de junio de 2018.

La preciosa ciudad de Praga será el escenario para encontrar respuestas a la pregunta de cómo pueden reinventarse las loterías tradicionales en el mundo digital. Actualmente, EL y Sazka, como la lotería anfitriona, junto con socios preferentes y semipreferentes, están trabajando en los detalles del programa para que este sea el evento más revelador y mejor en cuanto a formación de estrategias de 2018.

Robert Chvatal, director ejecutivo de Sazka, espera con ganas este próximo evento: “Tanto Sazka como yo personalmente seremos los orgullosos anfitriones de los EL Industry Days 2018, que se celebrarán en la histórica ciudad de Praga, capital de la República Checa. El tema de los Industry Days 2018 refleja mi sincera convicción de que la digitalización es la tendencia a seguir y un reto para todas las loterías tradicionales. Un reto al que todos nos enfrentamos y que debemos aprovechar. Creo firmemente que los EL Industry Days 2018 serán un encuentro inspirador y memorable para todos los miembros de EL que participen”.

“Los Industry Days son un evento importante en el calendario de las Loterías Europeas”, afirma Arjan van ‘t Veer como secretario general. “Estos días suponen una oportunidad de reunirse con colegas y amigos para hablar y escuchar importantes avances que presentan los ponentes inaugurales y los socios de EL. Especialmente ahora, con la estrategia renovada, EL debe alcanzar un nuevo nivel. Animo a nuestros miembros a estar a la altura de los valores de la lotería —responsabilidad, sostenibilidad/sociedad e integridad— también en las oportunidades digitales que se acercan. Durante los próximos Industry Days 2018, los asistentes descubrirán estos valores en los nuevos avances”.

EL-Branchentage 2018

„Digitale Geschäftsgelegenheiten ergreifen“ ist das Motto der EL-Branchentage 2018, die vom 4. bis zum 6. Juni im Marriott Hotel in Prag veranstaltet und am letzten Tag, dem 6. Juni 2018, mit einer EL-Generalversammlung abgeschlossen werden.

Das malerische Prag wird uns dabei als Kulisse dienen, um Antworten auf die Frage zu finden, wie traditionelle Lotterien sich in der digitalen Welt neu erfinden können. Derzeit erarbeiten EL und der Veranstalter Sazka gemeinsam mit Premium- und Semi-Premium-Partnern die Programmpunkte, um für das Jahr 2018 eine stimulierende Veranstaltung auf die Beine zu stellen, die uns strategisch weiterbringt.

Robert Chvatal, der CEO von Sazka, freut sich auf die Veranstaltung: „Sazka und ich persönlich freuen uns sehr darauf, die EL-Branchentage 2018 im historischen Zentrum von Prag, der Hauptstadt der Tschechischen Republik, austragen zu dürfen. Das Motto der Branchentage 2018 ist ganz im Sinne meiner festen Überzeugung, dass die Digitalisierung der wichtigste Trend und eine zentrale Herausforderung für alle traditionellen Lotterien ist. Eine zentrale Herausforderung, der wir alle uns stellen und die wir uns zu eigen machen müssen. Ich bin fest davon überzeugt, dass die EL-Branchentage 2018 alle EL-Teilnehmer inspirieren und einen bleibenden Eindruck hinterlassen werden.“

„Die Branchentage sind eine wichtige Veranstaltung im Kalender von European Lotteries“, so der Generalsekretär Arjan van ‘t Veer. „Dort können wir uns mit Kollegen und Freunden zu wichtigen Entwicklungen austauschen, die Redner und unsere EL-Partner vorstellen. Besonders jetzt, da wir unsere Strategie neu ausgerichtet haben, muss sich EL selbstbewusst weiterentwickeln. Ich ermutige unsere Mitglieder, die Lotteriewerte Verantwortungsbewusstsein, Nachhaltigkeit/Gesellschaft und Integrität bei künftigen digitalen Geschäftsgelegenheiten hochzuhalten. Auf den Branchentagen 2018 werden die Teilnehmer diese Werte in neuen Entwicklungen wiederfinden.“
