We’ve been gearing up for the biannual World Lottery Summit, which is held this year the week of September 10th in Montreal, Canada. The booth layout is done, and all the show lottery jackpot signs and LCD Signs are built and on their way to the Palais des congrès de Montréal (PCM). Four of our team will be going to work in our tradeshow booth, attend conference sessions and – most importantly – listen to and spend time with our Lottery industry customers. This year, the World Lottery Associations and the North American Lottery Association (NASPL) are holding their trade show and conference simultaneously, which makes this one of the largest lottery events ever. As stated in the website noted above, “The WLS 2012 brings two separate conventions, the 2012 WLA Convention and Trade Show and the NASPL 2012 Conference and Trade Show, together under the one roof. By joining forces, the WLA and NASPL aim to deliver a world lottery summit of unparalleled depth and quality to the members and contributors of both associations.” Carmanah is an associate (vendor) member of both associations, the WLA and NASPL, and has been serving the Lottery industry for over 10 years. From a product point of view, Carmanah’s focus will be on our wirelessly updated Jackpot signage, WiFi-enabled LCD Signage, and EvenLit™ LED Light Panels. As the dominate supplier of continuously updated indoor Jackpot signage in the world, we will be showing off our latest updates, including even brighter digits and a new array of wirelessly data transfer options. The WLA show in Brisbane, Australia in November 2010 was a very well-run and worthwhile event for everyone involved, and we expect this upcoming WLA/NASPL event to be just as worthwhile. For those of you that are our long term customers in the Lottery industry, we look forward to sharing some enjoyable late summer sessions with you in one of Canada’s most vibrant cities, Montreal.
