Wrap-up of the 2023 APLA/WLA Seminar

The 2023 APLA/WLA Seminar took place in Hong Kong from 16-18 May with the theme of ‘Leading Through Transformation’.

Through keynote presentations and in conversation sessions we heard from sporting champions, business leaders, lottery operators and suppliers on topics of business transformation and resilience.

Together we explored responding to competition, the challenges presented by shifts in the global economy, and the need to innovate when enhancing and developing products and services. We heard about the escalating pace and impact of technological change, ESG (Environment, Social & Governance) as an enabler for transformation, responding to illegal lottery operators, and how to retain and attract talent and develop leadership capabilities in our people.

We also had interesting and exciting opportunities to network with colleagues beyond the business program through various social activities including a visit to a charity project supported by our host, the Hong Kong Jockey Club, and an evening at the world-famous Happy Valley Racecourse.
