The Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) has selected Mohegan Gaming – Gek Terna to develop the first Integrated Resort and Casino (IRC) in Greece. The winning bid from Mohegan Gaming and Gek Terna proposes a state-of-the-art development plan, INSPIRE Athens, that includes a luxury hotel, premier entertainment venues, convention center, shopping, dining, casino, and a comprehensive mix of premium amenities.
The landmark INSPIRE Athens IRC is expected to attract an influx of international tourists and provide a significant contribution to the pioneering Hellinikon Project that will redefine the modern identity of Greece.
Mario Kontomerkos, President and CEO of Mohegan Gaming and Entertainments said: “We are honored to have been chosen by the Hellenic Gaming Commission and believe that as the first Integrated Resort and Casino experience in Greece, INSPIRE Athens will further solidify the City of Athens as one of Europe’s most enticing and iconic destinations”.
With state-of-the-art meeting facilities that will reposition Athens as the preferred MICE destination, a multi-purpose indoor event space, and sprawling resort pools, INSPIRE Athens intends to marry world-class luxury hospitality and ceaseless entertainment in a way that is never before been seen in the south of Europe.
The iconic design of the building was created by Steelman Partners, an international architectural firm specialising in IRC design and development. Much of the resort was designed to capitalise on the Greek affinity for the outdoors where virtually all the resort’s restaurants, bars, lounges, and nightclubs offer both indoor and outdoor experiences.
