"It’s been long since I have seen such a creative and modern exhibition. I loved the atmosphere, participants and speakers at workshops. I do not even mentionthe interior – it’s a decent, high level. I know what I am saying, because I have something to compare to: the last time I visited The Cannes Film Festival. It is an international event, so there are not many events interesting for me now; there isnot many events consistent with my ideas about how it should be done. And RACE is one of the most exciting events in my opinion.
I work in association with publishing house “Kommersant” at the project about elections, it is connected with image. Therefore I'm very interested in modern technology connected with promotion with online marketing. So I'm here at this exhibition", the visitor of the exhibition said during RACE Awards ceremony.
