One of the things that our industry should improve in recent years would be the image we have among society and politicians. Unfortunately we have a bad image. In order to revitalize this area and to find new optics that we believe should be addressed in the future we believe we should consider a paradigm shift that should be carried out in our mindset and in our way of communicating and thinking so that in the immediate future we have the image we deserve. For this reason we invited Mr. Codrin Scutaru, CEO at Public Affairs Solutions to speak to us in the panel “Lobby and the gaming industry”.
