Aegean Air

The largest Greek air­line by pas­sen­gers car­ried, des­ti­na­tions served and fleet size, Aegean Air has es­tab­lished an es­teemed rep­u­ta­tion through the pro­vi­sion of pre­mium ser­vices in both the short- and medium-haul air travel mar­kets. Serv­ing 151 mar­kets across 43 coun­tries, the air­liner is a proven player on the in­ter­na­tional scene.

Con­fer­ence Cen­tre

De­fined by its mod­ern and tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced fa­cil­i­ties, Megaron Athens In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence Cen­tre is one of the finest such venues not only in Greece but the whole of Europe. Span­ning 143,000 square me­tres, with 18 dif­fer­ent meet­ing spa­ces to se­lect from, the build­ing is built on ex­cep­tional aes­thet­ics, un­ri­valled client ser­vice and a stun­ning en­vi­ron­ment.

egaron is ac­knowl­edged as one of the finest con­fer­ence venues in Europe.

Un­usu­ally for a con­fer­ence venue, lo­cated right in the city cen­tre, it of­fers a strik­ing en­vi­ron­ment, is flooded with light (in all the right places) and has many open, ex­pan­sive spa­ces for net­work­ing, ex­hi­bi­tion and ca­ter­ing. Ex­cep­tional aes­thet­ics, cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy and un­ri­valled client ser­vice, top that off. Megaron was con­ceived and built with great re­spect for the en­vi­ron­ment, in­cor­po­rat­ing green ur­ban plan­ning and it is sur­rounded by six acres of fra­grant gar­dens.

The tech­nol­ogy and stage sys­tems built into Megaron’s five au­di­to­ria, which range in size from 340 to 2,000 pax, are at the fore­front of tech­nol­ogy and al­lows a world-class cul­tural pro­gramme to be wo­ven into the year. In all, Megaron’s of­fer­ing of 18 rooms, in­clud­ing the au­di­to­ria, means that 6,000 del­e­gates are able to be at one con­fer­ence at the same time. Megaron is par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar for world and global as­so­ci­a­tion meet­ings for that rea­son. Med­i­cal, life sci­ence, health­care, fi­nan­cial and IT sec­tors are fre­quent users of the cen­tre.

Close-by are ho­tels of all cat­e­gories, many of which are within walking dis­tance or min­utes by metro, as well as top mu­se­ums and restau­rants with ex­cel­lent choices, us­ing the many lo­cal fresh in­gre­di­ents.

A di­rect metro line con­nects the venue to the award win­ning Eleft­he­rios Venize­los In­ter­na­tional Air­port, mak­ing it par­tic­u­larly ac­ces­si­ble for in­ter­na­tional del­e­gates trav­el­ling from and to global des­ti­na­tions.

The Megaron is a mem­ber of ma­jor global as­so­ci­a­tions for the con­fer­ence in­dus­try in­clud­ing ICCA – the In­ter­na­tional Congress and Con­ven­tion As­so­ci­a­tion and AIPC – the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Con­ven­tion Cen­tres.

Megaron’s Ex­ec­u­tive Con­sul­tant for Con­fer­ences, Clare Am­sel, was re­cently elected to the Board of Di­rec­tors of ICCA as co-chair of the venues sec­tor and pre­vi­ously served for four years as a mem­ber of the Board of Di­rec­tors of AIPC.
