Ionian Inspires Cricket
As part of the series of activities associated with the World Travel Market touristic exhibition, the Region of the Ionian Islands presents another unique Ionian Inspires event. The theme of this year’s event is cricket in Greece, and the establishment of an International Cricket Festival in the Ionian Islands.
The event will take place in association with the Hellenic Cricket Federation in the historic setting of Lord’s cricket ground in London on Tuesday 10th November 2009 at 7.00pm. Guests will include journalists from the fields of sport and tourism, players and opinion-formers from the world of cricket.
The International Cricket Festival will take place mainly in Corfu during the months of May, June, September and October 2010. The aim is to host the festival on a regular basis, to develop theme-based tourism and to extend the touristic period in the Ionian Islands. Fundamentally, the festival hopes to promote the spirit of cricket to players, children and fans.
The Ionian Inspires event is held in cooperation with the Greek National Tourist Organisation and the International Cricket Council.
