deal Frank Kessaratos
Global Sales & Marketing Director-Kynoa

We are presenting here at the DEAL exhibition in Dubai, a very new and innovative product called KoliseumVR marrying the fantastic world of VR with the very familiar game of table soccer. What we have here is a very familiar amicable game intended to bring people together. VR is the most innovative and exciting thing to happen in the world of entertainment in the last few years. But it also kind of tends to bring people apart leading to social isolation. We have looked at how we can improve that and bring people together with experiences which are memorable we have seen lots of visits, traction and interests. I would say this is a very good exhibition representing the demands of the area which hopefully we can address.
