Athens in the spotlight

Athens is more than ever in the spotlight as an events destination, enjoying a top 25 conference destination according to ICCA, and is long heralded as a top incentives option. To truly get to know this buzzing metropolis OM DMC suggests a list of must do activities that suit conference delegate 'down time', spice up meetings and add that authentic touch to incentives.

Let’s start by throwing in a bit of culture and heading towards Plaka, the most visited downtown spot, not missing out on a stroll upon the ‘sacred rock’ (no other than the Acropolis hill) the Parthenon, and a visit to the world famed Acropolis museum, then back to refresh before heading out for an evening's gourmet dining with a Hellenic twist.

Heritage and local attractions immerse you into the country’s story through its people, customs and traditions, so, it’s fun to roam around the main shopping streets. Stop off to have a pair of authentic made to measure Greek sandals by proud local craftsmen, then head towards the colourful Varvakio market for anything edible that your heart desires, overwhelmed by the piles of spices, herbs, dry fruit and nuts, with special mention to the fresh produce from all corners of Greece.

Supporting local farmers and small businesses is always high on the agenda and part of our CSR and this can be incorporated within a team building event. 

A day of leisurely sailing on the Aegean to nearby stunning islands, like Aegina or further along to iconic Spetses and artistic Hydra offer a true highlight for any event.

Get in touch with OM for further inspiration on this very popular destination and for a tailor made itinerary.
