Welcome to Athens – home of our DMC Partner Horizon Travel
Our Managing Director Bernd R. Maesse and the Director of Operation Alexander O. Hesse just visited our DMC partner Horizon in Greece and wants to give you some insider tips which MICE locations you must not miss in the great versatile destination Greece.
The trip started with a site visit of Divani Caravel Hotel, which is member of the Leading Hotels of the World and offers luxury and style in the heart of Athens. The property offers elegant rooms and sumptuous suites, a variety of restaurants and bars, a rooftop health club and indoor as well as outdoor swimming pool with amazing views to the city and one of the biggest congress and banquet centers in Athens.
In the afternoon they visited the most sought after venue for events that take place in Athens during the summer period. The Island Private House is one of the trendiest and most fashionable clubs in Athens. On the wooden deck beside the oblong Zen pool, as well as in the lush gardens with a view of the infinite blue, you can enjoy the pleasant, relaxing moments of a coffee, lunch or dinner break.
The perfect venue to celebrate a Greek Gala Dinner is the Island Gallery. The “Gallery” is able to accommodate 400 guests for a seated dinner and has an astonishing sea view. The area escalates in levels, creating a particularly hospitable atmosphere.
If you are looking for a more private and exclusive location the Acropolis museum can be a good choice. Dinner as well as a visit at the museum can be held on private basis, after the museum is closed. The welcome drink can be offered on the veranda, while dinner is served inside the museum.
Feel unique! A legend since 1936, the King George Hotel has been home to kings, princes, presidents and Athenians alike. Each of the 102 rooms and suites combines the grace and stature of a historic landmark with ultramodern amenities and personal services.
On the second day the MMC team sailed to Hydra Island, a historic and picturesque landmark with distinctive traditional architecture. After walking through Hydra town they had a lunch at Douskos tavern with a “traditional Greek Weeding” Show.
To sum up the Site Visit in Greece they visited the Athens Olympic Velodrome, presently used for National and International meetings but can also be rented for some selected Corporate Events. Our Partner Horizon organized in the past several events in this venue with groups ranging from 400 up to 1.300 guests.
