Hosted by Attica Zoological Park (18-22 September 2018), Athens, Greece
The Attica Zoological Park is the only zoo in Greece - privately owned, it opened to the public in 2000, initially as a bird park. Today, it covers 20 hectares and has become a fully fledged zoo, with more than 290 species. Only 30 minutes from the city centre, it is considered to be amongst the top attractions of the city, serving all purposes of a modern zoo. Future plans include the opening of a museum on the evolution of species, as well as a large aquarium of international standards, creating for the first time a unique thematic destination for the country, and the Balkans.
Athens, a bustling and cosmopolitan metropolis, is the center of the economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece. Located at the crossroads of three continents, the capital of Greece, with an overall population of close to 5 million people, has often been the melting pot of many cultures. Characterized by a hospitality culture and people that are welcoming, every visitor is sure to receive a warm welcome. Being one of the most historically significant cities in Europe, Athens has much to offer to those who are interested in exploring some of the roots of our world’s civilization. Today’s capital integrates the ancient and medieval history into the contemporary era. Monuments can be found all around the city center, side by side with contemporary constructions. Athens is an ideal congress destination, combining state-of-the-art infrastructure, excellent congress facilities and easy access from all over the world, with world-class cultural attractions, modern amenities and diverse entertainment.
The Megaron Athens International Conference Centre (M.A.I.C.C.) is one of the finest and most technologically advanced conference venues in Europe. Situated in the city centre, yet surrounded by its own extensive landscaped gardens, Megaron offers a stunning environment, exceptional aesthetics, cutting edge technology and unrivalled client service. It has hosted some of the most important congresses in Greece, and was conceived and built with great respect for the environment and green urban planning. Whilst the original building faces straight onto one of Athens’ major avenues, the centre has been incorporated into the park right next to it, with such skill, that it in no way infringes on it.
More information about registration, accommodation, travel and more will become available by the end of January 2018.
