Members of the Limassol Chamber of Commerce & Industry had a chance to interact with Cyprus Casinos executives in an effort to learn about the future prospects of the enterprise, ranging from architecture to quality gaming.
The CEO of Cyprus Casinos and City of Dreams Mediterranean, Craig Ballantyne, was joined by architect Paris Philippou in giving a presentation about the casino resort which is expected to be ready in 2021.
“The development has been designed with respect to the surrounding environment and maintaining elements that are featured in Cypriot and Mediterranean architecture,” it was said in a statement during the presentation.
The members who attended the event also had a chance to hear from Isobel John, an expert in the gaming Industry, who went over the measures taken by the casino’s executive board to ensure the best game quality in a safe and pleasant environment.

Attendees were also given a tour of the C2 satellite casino, which is temporarily filling in for the resort until it goes into operation in 2021.
When completed, the resort will include a luxury hotel, the casino, a convention and exhibition centre, a spa, shops and indoor as well as outdoor entertainment venues. Experts say this will attract an additional 300,000 tourists annually, boosting tourism in many areas including conferencing and the leisure service industry.
Permanent satellite casinos will also open in other towns, one in Nicosia and one in Paphos later this year and two more in Larnaca and Famagusta by next year, in 2019.
In addition to the tour, members of the Chamber had a chance to speak directly with executives and discuss several issues of common interest.
