“INSPIRE Athens” Promises to Usher Greek Tourism into a New Era

October 14, 2020

ATHENS– The Hellenic Gaming Commission has accepted the financial proposal of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE)-GEK TERNA as a provisional winner of a tender for the concession of a casino license in the Hellinikon project.

According to a consortium announcement, the consortium submitted a successful proposal for a state-of-the-art development project, called INSPIRE Athens, which includes a luxury hotel, top entertainment destinations, a conference centre, shops, restaurants, a casino, and a set of high-end services and infrastructure. The integrated INSPIRE Athens complex is expected to attract many international tourists and to contribute significantly to the pioneering project of Elliniko, which will reshape the modern identity of Greece.

"We are honoured to have been selected by the gaming supervision and control committee, and we believe that, as the first integrated tourist complex in Greece, INSPIRE Athens will consolidate Athens' position as one of the most attractive and emblematic destinations in Europe," Mario Kontomerkos, President and CEO of Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment, said.

"We recognise the importance of this effort to change Greece, and we look forward to taking responsibility for the development of one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken in the country."
