Business Program announced for the 2023 APLA Regional Conference

With just over a month to go until we welcome delegates from around the world to the 2023 APLA Regional Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, we are excited to share with you the Business Program that details the presentations, conversations and events that will take place and are inspired by the event’s theme of ‘New Thinking for a Sustainable Future’.

The program at a glance

On the morning of Tuesday 24 October there is an optional half-day city sightseeing tour, for you to discover the sights of Thailand’s capital, Bangkok. This large city is known for its ornate shrines and vibrant street life, set on the banks of the boat-filled Chao Phraya River. The registration desk is open throughout the day, and our festivities begin with pre-dinner drinks followed by our fascinating keynote speaker, Ms Su-Yen Wong. Our Opening Dinner takes place after this, in the Chadra 1 Ballroom of the Siam Kempinski Hotel.

Wednesday 25 October sees the official commencement of the conference, with delegates welcomed by APLA Chairman, Sue van der Merwe. Day One of the Business Program will feature speakers delivering insightful conversations and presentations on the topics of Sustainability and Artificial Intelligence (AI). We will also hear from our sponsors, lottery counterparts and suppliers on ways we can use new thinking to create a sustainable future.

Thursday 26 October is our second and final day of the Business Program and includes an update from the World Lottery Association as well as a presentation on the Women in Lotteries Leadership program by The Lottery Corporation, and discussions around omnichannel experiences and leveraging new distribution channels. There will also be an announcement on the next APLA event, a donation made to a local charity, and the ever-popular lucky draw. On our final evening, we will celebrate the end of yet another wonderful opportunity to come together with a river cruise and the Closing Dinner at the Millennium Hilton.

And last but certainly not least, on Friday 27 October, we will have a wonderful networking event – the details of which we are currently keeping as a surprise for you – but stay tuned, as we’ll fill you in soon!
