Athens Convention Bureau
ACB Voted Best in Services and Assistance in Southeast Europe
When The MICE Report, the prestigious conventions and meetings travel trade publication, asked its newsletter subscribers to evaluate the facilities and the provision of services and assistance received by convention bureaus in the Southeast Europe category, the highest score was given to the Athens Convention Bureau.
The voting, which took place from January to April 2012, was based on the readers' personal experience with the convention bureaus.
The Athens Convention Bureau received the highest score in the ‘Best Convention Centre in Southeast Europe' category, for its outstanding provision of services and assistance.
"This important award recognizing the outstanding service offered by the Athens Convention Bureau to conference organizers, was won in a very difficult category, said Charles Vandeleur, editor of the MICE Report magazine.
"I would like to thank everyone at the Athens Convention Bureau for working with such great zeal and persistence and for putting their best efforts to effectively handle all the requests the office receives and to promote the Athens Business Tourism Product in the demanding MICE market," said Mr. George Broulias, member of the City Council of Athens and President of the Athens Development and Destination Management Agency. "This is a very important and encouraging distinction; especially at times like these that Athens is suffering from negative publicity.
The Athens Convention Bureau is an integral part of the Mayor of the City of Athens, Mr. Yorgos Kaminis' strategy to promote Athens as an ideal business and leisure tourism destination.
