A city that has had experience hosting large scale events and conferences such as the modern Olympic Games, has earned its place among the best and most qualified event organisers in the world. Athens is an ideal business convention destination, and not just because of the Olympic Games, because as a modern metropolis, Athens combines a wide range of resources and facilities to ensure success.
High quality infrastructure
The exceptional conference facilities that you’ll find in Athens, ranging from the iconic Athens Concert Hall, Zappeion Conference and Exhibition Centre, the luxury event spaces in the hotels in the centre to the Athens Riviera, the Peace and Friendship Stadium, the former Olympic venues for Badminton and Tae Kwon Do, and Technopolis in Gazi, ensure that in this popular destination you will find the perfect venue for your conference or event. This is also guaranteed with the audiovisual and communication facilities in these spaces, that are fully equipped to give you a complete and comprehensive conference tourism experience.
Accommodation in Athens
Aside from the spaces where the conference will take place, this capital city will complement your business trip with a relaxing holiday, that will let you get to know Athens better. Enjoy your stay thanks to the high standards of hospitality at Athens’ hotels, that cover a wide range of accommodation preferences: modern boutique hotels with an emphasis on design, luxury resorts, glamourous large-scale hotels, elegant art hotels, all with an emphasis on comfort and hospitality.
Holiday experiences in Athens
Finally, make your trip to Athens feel like a holiday: tour the exceptional museums, monuments and attractions that you’ll find in the historic centre of the city, savour refined flavours at its award-winning, world-renowned restaurants, have fun at its cosmopolitan bars, and even rejuvenate by the sea: water sports on the organised beaches of the Athens Riviera, cruising with a yacht, day trips to the nearby islands of the Saronic Gulf.

Your experience here will be unforgettable. And if you aren’t the athletic type, Athens has a solution for that too: nearby excursions of archaeological, recreational or gastronomic interest, limitless options for shopping, having coffee, or taking a stroll, make for a brief holiday experience in the capital of Europe, with its sun-drenched days and bright Aegean light.
An accessible and modern capital
Another reason Athens is an ideal destination for business tourism is its quick and easy accessibility. Frequent flights from the biggest international airlines connect with the modern, award-winning Athens International Airport. For transportation within the city, the modern metro network not only makes transit efficient, but is in itself an attraction: the excavations during its construction brought to light unique archaeological finds, which are on display for the public at Athens’ more central stations, such as Syntagma and Monastiraki.
So don’t delay: Athens is waiting to welcome you with exciting experiences, whatever your reason for visiting the city!
