DTZ Ukraine confirms participation in ‘Game ON’

8 October 2015; Kyiv, Ukraine. DTZ Ukraine, a global leader in property services, has become one of the speakers of the Game ON Conference, which will be held on 13-14 October in Kyiv.

DTZ Ukraine confirms participation in ‘Game ON’DTZ has an established research and consultancy department able to assist operators in district analysis and site selection in conjunction with its office and retail leasing teams. As the only real estate consultancy in the country to have a dedicated land department, DTZ experts also uniquely placed in assisting operators in identifying suitable development sites for bespoke complexes as well as attracting local development partners where needed.

Nick Cotton, Managing Director at DTZ Ukraine, said: “Properly regulated gambling operations would provide a powerful boost to the Ukrainian economy through increased employment and tax revenues as well as to the commercial real estate market which has been hit so hard over the course of the last 18 months. The real estate market could potentially benefit through increased demand for high street / mall based casinos in existing premises as well as the opportunity for the development of standalone facilities in more strategic locations. They can also be seen as a catalyst to enable the development of mixed use complexes such as hotels and entertainment complexes that might otherwise be unviable to develop. With occupational rent levels, capital and land values at historically low levels coupled with high competition in the construction industry, this presents casino operators and developers with a very favorable time at which to enter this market.”

Glyn Thomas, co-owner of ACE Publishing Ltd., organiser of Game ON, comments:  “DTZ Ukraine brings to the Conference its extensive and oftentimes unique expertise on the local real estate market. After its re-launch, the gaming industry and international operators in particular will need top consultancy services to be able to navigate through intricacies of local property legislation and get best fitting recommendations for the location of their businesses. The Game ON Conference will serve as a unique networking platform in this regard giving the industry a head start.”

Game ON is an industry-wide programme of events and initiatives which will open with a two-day Conference in Kyiv bringing together top officials and international gambling industry. Presentations and discussions will focus on how Ukraine can have a rejuvenated gaming industry that is transparent and fair to all involved, while providing a sizeable contribution towards the country’s economy and meeting the modern social objectives set by the State and the industry.
