Asia Pacific Lottery Association
Regional Conference 2011
Penang 10 14
About the Conference
APLA's Regional Conference is being organized by Magnum Corporation Sdn Bhd and
the location has been selected to be in the beautiful island of Penang, aka
Pearl of the Orient.
The Theme for this year's Regional Conference is
"Keeping Up with Social Media Technologies, Responsible Gaming, GREEN and New
Initiatives". The topics under this theme are carefully selected to give the
delegates an update as well as an opportunity to learn from the experts in
these fields. We decided on a range of current topics and not just focus on ONE
so as to meet the many needs of our members.
A specially introduced Debate
of the Day session will provide the delegates present two opposing views and
hopefully with this, they can then be able to make better
recommendations/decisions for their organizations.
We will also share with
the delegates new initiatives from IBM and CISCO whereby IBM will share on
their Smarter Planet strategies and CISCO on their Unified Communication
strategies. These strategies are implemented to bring the communities closer
together and the delegates can then start thinking of new ideas how to
strategise their business to take advantage of these new technologies.
you can see there's lots of topics to cover and we are sure you will go home
from this Regional Conference very informed. All work and no play will not be
good for us, as such we have also lined up very interesting social events to
make sure you will go home filled with memorable moments of your stay in
