Cinema Expo International will present Philippe Täschler of Kitag Cinema Group with its International Exhibitor of the Year award.
The kudo will be presented at the Cinema Expo award ceremony on June 28 in Amsterdam.
Täschler founded the Kitag Cinema Group in 1992 with nine screens in Switzerland. The chain currently has 69 screens.
Cinema Expo cited Kitag’s efforts to equip theaters with the digital systems and the chain’s introduction of the Ciné-Card, making it possible to buy cinema tickets without using cash.
