Sports tourism professionals were due to arrive at Paphos on 5th December. The professionals from eight countries will arrive in Paphos with the aim of further promoting this industry sector.
The Paphos regional board of tourism in cooperation with the CTO and with the organisers of sporting events and a number of Paphos hotels are undertaking the initiative.
The professionals are expected to stay until the 8th December.
Professionals will come from countries including, the UK, Germany, Russia, Israel, Slovakia, Greece, Ukraine and the Netherlands. They were picked due to good flight connections and to capitalise on those countries that have been to Paphos in the past.
They will be familiarised with the sports infrastructure, such as the Olympic size swimming pool in Geroskipou, visit several stadiums and will be guided and have the chance to experience cycling, the marathon and triathlon routes, as well as visit the countryside and explore Paphos’ rich cultural heritage.
