It was in 1999 that our Association adopted the name of The European Lotteries, embracing with it the mission of promoting the collective interests of its Members with regard to the European institutions and national and international authorities, enhancing the status of its individual Members. A few years later, in 2007 we started our office in Brussels to underline and professionalize our activities in the heart of Europe and now we are in Belgium again, in the sparkling city of Antwerp to continue this exceptional course with our 10th European Lotteries Congress. Since the creation of our Association, lotteries have increased knowledge of each other and have awakened the interest to learn from each other. It is always in communication and dialogue we can advance. As President of EL, I am proud to see such a large and diverse community of lotteries, united in our core fundamental values, and I warmly invite you all to join us for this special Congress on „The Success of Chance“, that once again will be a great occasion to meet, to listen, to discuss, and to plan for the future.
I am sure, that this Congress will be the best opportunity to get new insights and to define the best routes to handle actual and upcoming challenges.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Antwerp,
President - European Lotteries
