Today, we’ll highlight why one of the most popular overseas destinations for corporate events is Greece. Not only is it accessible in under 4 hours, we will also give a few reasons that explain why Greece should be considered as your next corporate events destination:
1. Great hospitality
Greece has always been known to be one of the friendliest countries in the world. A DMC works with particular venues and restaurants that are of the highest ratings to ensure your guests are well cared for and have the very best service throughout their stay.

In-between events, you might wish to provide options for guests to do in their free time, but rest-assured, there will always be something to see in Greece. There are plenty of historical sites to explore, which are sure to impress even the most experienced of travellers. Greece is home to an abundance of architectural delights, as well as some of the most influential intellectuals to ever exist; including the likes of Alexander the Great and Aristotle; where their work still exists to this very day.
3. It’s affordable
However, Greece is one of the most affordable destinations you’re likely to come across. The cost of accommodation and food is far less than nearby countries; meaning you don’t have to spend a fortune to secure the very best. Greece has plenty to offer.
