Kontomerkos (MGE): Inspire Athens will become top entertainment destination in Southern Europe



Marios Kontomerkos, CEO of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, reiterated the commitment for the implementation of the big investment for the new casino in Elliniko, during a panel discussion in the 5th Delphi Economic Forum.

“We pledge that Inspire Athens will become the number one entertainment destination in Southern Europe – we are ready to start as soon as the green light is given. We have already done a detailed job to ensure that we start as soon as possible”, he said.

Mr. Kontomerkos noted that until the final approval is obtained, there is a large team working in Greece, 60 professionals including engineers, architects, etc. as well as associates of GEK TERNA, as a partner in the consortium which is expected to undertake this major project. The Inspire Athens project is an integrated model resort with hotels, conference rooms, entertainment facilities and a casino.

“We are trying to make it the top conference destination in Southern Europe. Greece has the potential to gain a significant market share in this area, with 19 destinations just 2 hours away. For the casino, which will be one of our many activities, we seek to attract not only the domestic market, but mainly customers from Central Europe, Russia and the Middle East”, added the CEO of MGE.

In addition to investing in Elliniko, Mohegan has other ongoing investments: 2 casinos that will most likely open in the summer in Niagara region (which is a period when the region records its largest tourist traffic), 1 casino at South Koreas’ International Airport (45 ′ from Seoul) -whose construction is expected to be completed in 2022- and a casino in Las Vegas in collaboration with Virgin Hotels, which is currently is under renovation since February and is expected to be ready by the end of the year.
