G2E Asia organizer Reed Exhibitions has announced the launch of The Asia Lottery Expo and Forum, a new feature that will make its official debut at Asia’s premier gaming trade show from 15 to 17 May 2018. The three-day event follows the success of the Asia Lottery Forum and 7th China Lottery Industry Salon, which attracted more than 700 lottery professionals to the event in 2017.

The launch of the multi-faceted Asia Lottery Expo & Forum aims to deliver a business, learning and networking platform exclusively designed for lottery professionals and to provide an opportunity for technology and solution providers to showcase their current and upcoming game designs, platforms, systems, capabilities and innovations, while meeting and exploring collaboration prospects with fellow lottery operators in Asia.

“The Asia Lottery Forum is an annual, not-to-be-missed event,” says Professor Su Guojing, lottery expert and founder of the China Lottery Industry Salon. “The China Lottery Industry Salon and Asian Responsible Gaming Alliance are honored to have co-hosted the Asia Lottery Forum with G2E Asia in 2017. As the Secretary General of Sub-committee for Lottery Major under National Teaching Instruction Committee of Civil Affairs Vocational Education, I am also very pleased to have the opportunity to work with the organizer. We invited industry experts, academics and professionals from across Asia and created a unique opportunity for them. The participants exchanged ideas, learned from each other, and explored how to better promote the healthy and sustainable development of Asia's lottery industry. This marks a new stage for regional lottery cooperation and development. We look forward to even greater success at Asia Lottery Expo & Forum 2018.”

Asia-Pacific’s lottery industry reported total sales of US$107.7 billion in 2016, according to the World Lottery Association, with the August 2017 edition of WLA Magazine additionally reporting global lottery sales had risen by 0.9% in the first quarter of 2017. Sales in Africa, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region soared by 9.4%, 5.8% and 5.4% respectively in 1Q17.

It also said Mainland China had registered cumulative lottery sales of US$52.7 billion in the first 10 months of 2017 with year-on-year growth of US$3.8 billion (7.7 %), including welfare lottery sales of US$26.8 billion and sports lottery sales of US$25.9 billion.

The Asia Lottery Expo & Forum 2018 will feature three full days of professional seminars led by members of China Lottery Industry Salon Experts Committee and key industry leaders. It will focus on three highly relevant themes and trends affecting the growth of Asia’s lottery industry, namely "Asian Lottery Market Trends and Dynamics", "Opportunities, Challenges of the Asia Lottery Industry and the Era of Big Data" and "Accelerating the Asia Lottery Industry - Corporate Social Responsibility and Technology Innovation Development." The Forum will officially conclude with the industry’s first-ever networking session created exclusively for lottery professionals. 

The Asia Lottery Expo & Forum will be co-located within G2E Asia 2018, the region’s largest one-stop destination and sourcing platform for the gaming-entertainment industry presented by the America Gaming Association and organized by Reed Exhibitions. It will offer a unique and unrivaled opportunity for professionals to meet the Asia-Pacific’s fast-growing lottery industry.
