It is a great pleasure to greet you all in the second issue of our magazine. Despite all the difficulties this year brought to us, we have never backed down from the idea of resuming the work of the print media. We do it not only because of our preferences but also because of the requests of many of you. After all, it is a printed magazine that is a certain way of preserving values and traditions that mean a lot to us.
However, in parallel with the work on a new issue of the magazine, we recently launched its online version. The key to success and progress is to keep pace with modern trends, follow, and be not only present here and now, but also to innovate in all areas.
We position our access to the world wide web not only as an online edition of the magazine but also as the first online catalog of the gaming and entertainment industry in Ukraine. The goal is ambitious and our team is constantly working on its implementation. We hope you appreciate our efforts and look forward to seeing you on our virtual pages.
In addition, after a 12-year break, in June we managed to hold, without exaggeration, the legendary exhibition Gaming Industry. This was a big challenge followed by the postponement of the exhibition due to the epidemic situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite all the concerns about the success of the event, participants from 14 countries and more than 2,000 visitors proved the opposite. It is obvious that the market is recovering and needs a quality platform for dialogue, exchange of experiences, presentation of achievements and new technologies.
On November 24, at the International Exhibition Center, we are holding the second Gaming Industry exhibition. We expect to see even more participants and visitors, and for our part, we promise interesting guests, some new products and presentations of educational platforms. Welcome!
In the end, as it usually happens, hard times bring people together. This year, we focused on synergies and became partners with the Ukrainian Gambling Council, which is a specialized public association that unites 80% of the representatives of the legal gambling market in Ukraine. We are proud of our strategic partnership and are pleased to promote the creation of a modern and socially responsible gambling market.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our partners and advertisers, and I would like to thank the Ukrainian doctors who are on the first line of defense against the pandemic that has already taken away so much from all of us.
We are waiting for you at the exhibition and on our pages. Take care of yourself and your loved ones, do not get sick!
