Gnome Design Ltd. participated on the 22th of May on the B2B brokerage event in Netherlands, Arnhem, organized by the Province of Gelderland and the East Netherlands Development Agency.

Gnome Design’s response to this need is the success stories, references, and a skilled specialist and technology portfolio achieved with our 10-year-old partners in Germany. Our intention is primarily to leverage our technical and business experience in corporate management and logistics systems through our future presence on the Dutch market.
We are looking forward to participate in joint projects and to develop the European IT culture based on a common know-how and future vision.
