In 2020, Kyiv to Host Major Event by Smile-Expo – Ukrainian Gaming Week

Ukraine’s largest gambling exhibition, Ukrainian Gaming Week (UGW), will be held on March 11-12, 2020. The event organized by Smile-Expo will take place in Kyiv and bring together leading industry manufacturers.

Reasons for holding this event

On September 2, 2019, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy issued a commission to develop a bill on legalizing a gambling business in the country, while on September 29, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the corresponding document. The highly anticipated legalization of the gambling market will provide entrepreneurs with new prospects and growth possibilities.

Therefore, in 2020, Smile-Expo International Company will return the major exhibition of gambling software and hardware to Kyiv. The event will feature several areas allowing visitors to communicate with exhibitors and speakers.
