Conference Tourism

Conference tourism refers to the type of tourism which is connected with attendance at conferences, exhibitions etc. Conference tourism represents a sustantial market at an international level. A crucial factor for the development of conference tourism anywhere is the availability of the necessary infrastructure and services, such as exhibition space, accommodation, cafes and restaurants, interpreter services, etc. In addition, easy access to the location where the conference or exhibition is to take place is a critical factor for attracting visitors. The organization of conferences is one of the fastest developing and dynamic sectors for Greek tourist products. With the occasion of the organization of the Athens Olympic Games in 2004, specialized facilities were built in the Attica area, and the necessary infrastructures were developed for the organization of conferences. These infrastructures, in combination with the wonderful climate, the beauty of the country, exceptional cuisine, well known hospitality, rich night life and cultural entertainment undoubtedly make Athens an ideal destination for the organization of conferences. The Acropol Hotel is located at a key intersection, since the largest exhibition centers of the city are to be found within the range of a few kilometers. Our staff has substantial experience in the conference tourism area, and the hotel provides professional and reasonably priced services for conference organizers.

Medical Tourism

The term medical tourism refers to the travel, within or from outside the borders of the country, of people with health problems, in order to receive private health care, such as surgical procedures and specialized forms of therapy. At the same time, within the framework of medical tourism, people who need constant medical care are enabled to travel to the tourist destinations they desire. It should be noted that medical tourism includes (apart from medical care in the best hospitals) transportation services, access to information, tours, restaurant facilities, and stays at selected hotels. Although medical tourism has a relatively new meaning for our country, in comparison with other countries abroad, the possibilities it can provide are huge. In recent years, great steps have been taken to develop medical tourism in Greece, and more and more patients, within our country and from abroad, are choosing to combine their holidays with some type of medical service. Our hotel is located at a short distance from some of the largest hospitals in Athens, such as Sotiris Tsioumas’ Modern Clinic of Diagnostic Surgery and Aesthetic Ophthalmology (, which offers complete medical tourism services, to Greeks who do not live in the capital, as well as tourists from abroad. Thus our customers are able to enjoy the pleasures of Athens, and, at the same time, receive high quality medical services.
