The City Transportation Accommodation Conference Venue Gala Dinner Venue

The City

The conference will be held in Thessaloniki, located in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula in the east part of the Mediterranean region. Thessaloniki is an ancient city, with the marks of history being imprinted on its architectural and cultural legacy (historical monuments). It is a city of contrasts, which combines modern architecture alongside traditional buildings and ancient archaeological, Roman and Byzantine era monuments and places. At present, Thessaloniki is recognized as a commercial capital in the Northern Greek district and as a dynamic centre in the south-east part of Europe. In overall, Thessaloniki's many and varied attractions provide visitors with a unique experience, while the expected mild and comfortable weather conditions during October, as well as the city’s and the country’s hospitality, create an adequate environment for the organization of a successful event and for all the social activities related to the conference.

As a familiar destination, Thessaloniki is easy to get to from most parts across Europe. More information about Thessaloniki can be found here .


The conference venue is located in a walking distance (2km) from the city centre, 2km from the city’s railway terminal and 20km from the airport. A full list of other near-by hotels will be presented in the conference web-page in order to simplify traveling.

As the conference venue is served by very good public transportation, it is not expected that delegates travelling to the event produce more environmental impacts than the ones that are usually produced by the regular public transportation.


The venue is within walking distance from most proposed hotels, from the city centre and from many museums, Roman, Byzantine and archaeological attractions of the city; thus it is expected that most delegates will prefer walking than using the public transportation, contributing to a further decrease of environmental impact for their transportation during the conference.
