Oleksandr Kokhanovsky, the co-founder of the Ukrainian multi-gaming e-sports organisation Natus Vincere (NAVI), has said that the Dnipro hotel in Kyiv will be transformed into an e-sports venue.

“The victory in the auction for Dnipro hotel was won not by Russian oligarchs, but by Ukrainian IT specialists. We will turn it into the first hotel in the world fully prepared for e-sports events. It will include not only the attributes of a top hotel (restaurants, bars, SPA zones, and fitness centers), but also unique e-sports elements: training zones, an e-sports stage, special rooms for professional players, as well as the world’s best players’ lounge,” Oleksandr Kokhanovsky, founder of the DreamTeam gaming platform, said on Facebook.

According to Kokhanovsky, a group of partners and investors will work on the project.

He also noted that a presentation of the Ukrainian Professional E-sport Association was scheduled for September, which plans to have a large infrastructure cybersport project.

“This is a whole ecosystem, which includes the creation of a modern multifunctional e-sports arena with all-Ukrainian and international tournaments, an e-sports academy, educational projects and an e-sports association uniting key market players who will develop the industry and help improve the legislative framework,” Kokhanovsky said.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The SEE Gaming Business Forum has invited AskGamblers to participate in an iGaming event, the first event of this kind – entirely focused on South-East Europe. The Forum will be held on 20 November 2020 online, with AskGamblers’ Vice President Nikola Teofilovic speaking in the second panel. Teofilovic will be discussing strategies and business models to thrive in the era of digital as well as the latest industry trends on the horizon.

The SEE Gaming Business Forum is the first iGaming event of this kind to focus on South-East Europe entirely. It was initially planned to showcase in Belgrade as a hybrid event but has moved fully online to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all participants and speakers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Forum will feature IV panels, bringing together casino and sportsbook operators, C-level executives, software suppliers and major providers, payment solutions companies and national regulators that impose taxes and collect money. SEE Gaming participants will discuss business strategy, regulatory obstacles, industry requirements, social responsibility and the role of technology in the industry.

The virtual, interactive platform will give everyone the opportunity to engage in discussion and networking sessions as simultaneous interpreting into English and Serbian will be provided.

Nikola Teofilovic, Vice President of AskGamblers at Catena Media and a part of its Executive Management team, is scheduled to speak in the II panel and discuss strategies and business models to thrive in the era of digital. He will also reflect on the latest iGaming trends on the horizon.

As a true visionary and the epitome of a get-goer who has cultivated AskGamblers from a startup into a leading online casino authority, Teofilovic is, for sure, the right person to talk at this conference. Over the past decade, AskGamblers has proven itself to be the most reputable online casino portal, providing the latest iGaming information and guiding players to a safe gambling experience.

Commenting on his participation in the SEE Gaming Business Forum, Nikola Teofilovic said: “I am beyond honoured to participate in SEE Gaming Business Forum and exchange opinions and experiences with such incredible professionals that are scheduled to speak alongside me. The entire team at AskGamblers puts their heart and soul into the project, and I’m happy it shows. I’m counting days till 20 November and must say have a bit of jitters. See you there!”

Nikola currently manages a 70-people team at AskGamblers located in Belgrade, Serbia.

You will be able to follow the action from December 10 – 13 as the best players will test their might on the fiery stage at WePlay Esports Arena Kyiv, with $60,000 on the line – the FIRST ever event in the custom build arena.

The contest of champions will consist of two phases, the Group Stage and Playoffs. The former will have all teams split between two round-robin groups, with players required to win two out of three sets against their opponent. The latter phase will see the top four contestants from each group advance to the Playoffs, where they will battle it out in a Best-of-5 double-elimination bracket.

“We at WePlay Esports recognize that fighting games have all they need to become a form of mass entertainment, just like boxing and UFC. The potential audience of these titles is enormous and includes many generations of casual players. Everyone interested in the MK multiverse will enjoy WePlay Dragon Temple. Our teams will do their best to make this event special, so don’t miss it.” – says Anton Gribovskiy, General Manager Americas at WePlay Esports.

“With WePlay Dragon Temple, our team gets to create a new experience in a title we have never worked on before. We are probably as excited as the fans will be when they see all the great matchups we have planned for them. We intend to provide the same level of entertainment you have come to know us for.”
– says Eugene “Hitras” Shepelev, Lead Esports Manager at WePlay Esports.

As an ex-professional player back in Virtua Fighter, I have always had a real passion for fighting games. When I first learned about the event, I was thrilled to get the chance to be involved. It’s awesome how WePlay Esports plan to bring us Christmas early with the Dragon Temple tournament. Together with the team we will do everything possible to make this one of the best Mortal Kombat events you have ever seen!
– says James “BanKs” Banks, project consultant.
