Greece by conference
All through ancient times the Gods, poets, authors and artists revered Greece as the cradle of all civilization. It was in the capital of the country, Athens, that the first conference of the civilized world took place. Pericles, the founder of democracy, addressed the people of Athens from Pnyx at the foot of the Acropolis. Since then we have taken giant leaps in improving the comfort of our conference facilities and complimenting them with ultra-modern state of the art, purpose-built properties.
Our people, Culture and Hospitality!
Throughout the centuries, Greece has always been renowned for its three basic characteristics; its people, culture and hospitality. Greeks are friendly and openminded, as well as speaking English and other European languages and always provide a warm welcome.
Greece is easily accessible from most of the world’s destinations.
26 International airports and over 20 international ports make Greece the ideal destination for a floating conference or for running a yachting/sailing incentive or just a cruise.
A full EU member since 1981, Greece is considered one of the safest European countries in the whole world. The family market for business travel and events is expected to grow as executives try to balance long working hours with family time. Greece can provide safety for delegates and the opportunity to bring their family along as most hotels have made special provisions.
One of the most important advantages of Greece is its mild weather. All four seasons and the activities completing them can be enjoyed; from a warm summer and water sports to a crisp winter and skiing in the country’s five ski resorts.
Cosmopolitan cities sit side by side with the exciting outdoors offering visitors the chance to combine a wide range of both spectator and participation activities with urban cultural pursuits. With its 17,000 km coastline and two archipelagos scattered with numerous islands, Greece is a country that presents its guests with a variety of activities to be enjoyed all year round.
Greece is a country with a long established leisure travel industry. In the last few years, there has been a strong investment in developing a well-managed business travel infrastructure. The ideal time to host an event in the country is during the shoulder or low season between October and May when most hotels offer competitive delegate rates coupled with mild weather conditions make Greece the obvious choice.
The geography of Greece is such that parts of it are ideal for incentives including Pelion, Macedonia, Peloponnese, Epirus and Central Greece with its gorges, lakes and mountain ranges or the Cyclades for a flotilla trip. On the other hand, Athens, Thessaloniki, Halkidiki and the islands of Rhodes, Kos, Corfu and Crete are all perfect for conferences due to their modern facilities.
