Speaking with InterGame at the RAAPA show held in Moscow recently, GameTrade’s Yaroslav Sobko said: “We now have a lot of companies with their own brands and customers know them well. The entertainment business is now an important part of the cinemas and shopping malls and everyone understands it. “But only the effective companies will be successful; the companies that take care about their clients and work hard on customer loyalty. The main difference in Russia is that bowling is still growing in popularity compared with markets such as the US and Europe.” GameTrade, which currently operates three FECs in Russia and five in the Ukraine, offers solutions for entertainment centres - developing, designing and planning the project as well as supplying the equipment and training.
