Welcome to Vancouver!
Dear friends and lottery colleagues,
Pursuing our mission to raise funds for good causes is a never-ending journey that must be navigated with determination, inspiration, and innovation. It is essential that the members of the world lottery community periodically come together to help create the road map that will lead the global lottery sector to an inspiring future.
In this spirit, lottery professionals from around world will converge in Vancouver, Canada, from October 16–20, 2022, for the World Lottery Summit 2022 (WLS 2022). As at the highly successful World Lottery Summit 2012 in Montreal, Canada, the WLA and NASPL have once again joined forces to bring you a world-class lottery event. And, with the organizational backing of host lottery BCLC, WLS 2022 is destined to be an event to remember.
Vancouver, a bustling west coast seaport, is one of Canada’s most vibrant cities. As host city of the 2010 Winter Olympics, Vancouver is familiar with the values of integrity, community, and fairness – all values that are central to the lottery sector. Through its ethnic diversity and progressive ideals, Vancouver echoes the spirit of the world lottery community and, as such, is a fitting venue for WLS 2022.
The Vancouver Convention Centre, with its more than 40,000 square meters of flexible function space, is one of Canada’s largest convention venues. Located in one of the most breathtaking parts of the city, the convention center is sure to set an inspirational tone for WLS 2022.
The WLS 2022 organization team is putting together a top-notch curriculum for this important event.
We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver for the World Lottery Summit 2022!
Interim President and CEO of BCLC
October 16 – 20, 2022
