COVID19 has catapulted Digital Transformation from being a prediction about the future to being a here-and-now imperative.  Making sense of this inflexion point is the goal of Lottery Expo: Transformed and Post-COVID19 Lottery: The Movie.  Whether in-person in Nashville or entirely virtual, Lottery EXPO: Transformed will be a live-streamed and highly interactive webinar event.   The final scenes of Post-COVID19 Lottery: the Movie will be recorded and the final cut premiered at this event on Oct. 14 and 15.  


While we hope and expect that conditions will allow us to see you in-person in Nashville, PGRI’s digital platform is where the audience of thousands of industry professionals will convene and forge new pathways to enable us all to stay connected, share ideas and best-practices, and preserve our feeling of community.  Let’s take this opportunity to transform for a new age, a digital era rich with tools for collaboration, communication, and interaction.  This is a time for aspirational goals to inspire us to stretch the boundaries for what can be accomplished, invent entirely new ways to change the world, and embark on a journey fueled by vision-driven momentum to meet the future head-on, with gusto, confidence, and actionable strategies. 

Follow (our conference website) or (PGRI home-page and news website) for conference and webinar updates, and to follow the production process as we toil to create a new kind of experience, digitally transformed to not just enable but enrich and enhance the joy of working and striving together.
