Each year, more and more travelers are choosing Athens for their leisure and business travel all year round. And it’s no wonder. Athens combines the qualities of a modern metropolis with those of a rich archaeological past, evident in all parts of the city. Some  of  humanity’s  most  exciting  ideas  were  born  in  Athens,  and  from  here  they  were  shared with the world. This could be due to the fine weather; or the inspiring scenery; or, if you prefer, the Athenian attitude towards life. Whatever  the  reason,  great  ideas  seem  to  have  always  reached  the  most  distant  places  when  coming  from  this  unique  place  of  Europe. 

Today, it is this same quality that turns all conventions into big successes. From Plato’s “Symposium” to the contemporary international, European and national meetings of various fields, the “innate Athenian capacity for social gatherings” makes you bring out the best in yourself, turning every convention into a rare experience. Enhanced by  its  state-of-the-art  venues and  facilities,  Athens  today  can  meet  the  demands  of  any  event  and  always  deliver  an  impeccable result.

Characterized by a culture and as well as people that are welcoming and hospitable (filoxenia) every visitor is made to feel at home.
