"We promise a fantastic day and gala for the whole family and all our game buddies," said Marita Hammervold, CEO of Subito.

"With KIDZ! as a huge finale to Gamex we feel that we reach the entire target group and can offer an even more fun program for the entire gaming family, "said Gital Al-Ebeyawi, project manager for Gamex at Kistamässan.

"Finally!" said Maria Tjärnlund from Dataspelsbranschen and continues. "It's about time there was a gala for the kids. Over 50% of all games released in Sweden, are kids games."
