ATHOS Ltd. organise the 1st International Sport Tourism Forum taking place at the Hilton Park Hotel Nicosia, Cyprus on September 27th & 28th, 2005. The dates coincide with the World Tourism Day, bringing out that Sport Tourism is expected to grow in the future. An important number of Tour Operators, major Hotel Chains and National Tourism Organizations from around the world have declared their attendance, while the Olympic Games of Athens 2004 have revealed more than ever the strong bond between Sports and Tourism.
The target is to create a new yearly institution offering a dynamic international platform to Sport Tourism professionals and academics to exchange their experience in this growing sector of the worldwide tourism development exchange experience and create new business contacts. The Conference will give the opportunity to examine all positive effects of Sport Tourism in each country such as receiving tourists desiring to combine their holidays with physical activity / recreation, organizing sport excursions and camps for schools, welcoming amateur and professional athletes for training purposes and / or hosting (major) sport events and thus attracting tourists from all around the world enhancing the extension of the traditional local tourism season.
Participants from all over the world, representing crucial national and international bodies, institutions, groups and associations will be attending the sessions.
