With year long conference demands and a brand new industry accolade, the Grecian property is a top choice for any corporate or consumer event.Athenian coastal retreat, Grand Resort Lagonissi, has announced that the entire property including the extensive meeting, conference and event facilities will remain in operation 365 days a year.
The decision to keep the doors open yearlong, as opposed to the standard summer operating season (April – Oct), is as a response to the increasing client demand and commitment to showcasing Greece as a key destination for meetings and events for every season.
The property was recently awarded the industry-renowned title of ‘Europe’s Leading Meetings & Conference Centre’ at the 2014 World Travel Awards. Following this outstanding achievement in such a competitive category (voted against Excel London, ICC Berlin and Fira Barcelona to name a few), the facilities have been recognised for exceptional versatility, attention-to-detail service and convenient location.
Set on a striking 72-acre peninsula along the Apollo Coast, with stunning panoramic views of the Aegean Sea, the property elegantly balances the beauty of the natural landscape with state-of-the-art amenities.
Discover various meeting and function rooms in the hotel’s main building, as well as the ‘Grand Hall,’ perfect for hosting a range of corporate meetings, conferences and events within its sleek, contemporary boundaries. It incorporates a reception and registration area, spacious outdoor area and both indoor and outdoor parking for over 1,900 cars, with direct access to the building. A valet service is included for those who drive to the hotel. Technical elements are also provided including audiovisual equipment, wireless high speed internet access in all rooms and technical support is provided at all times.
There are a total of 14 different conference rooms, ranging from the illustrious 1,125 sq.m. Cosmos Ballroom, with a capacity of 1,350 people, to the smaller but no less well equipped 145 sq.m. Galileo room, which can hold a maximum of 130 people. All rooms can be arranged in various ways, from theatre or classroom style to a more relaxed buffet/cocktail setup.
With its enchanting coastal backdrop the surroundings are sure to inject a touch of Mediterranean inspiration to any event or celebration. Particularly as the extensive facilities include retractable glass doors to reveal the magical sea views, for that extra-special touch. As well as being beside the sea, the option to explore the city is still within easy reach as Athens city centre is less than 50 minutes drive away.
Destination weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, car-launches and galas can also be celebrated in one of these many function rooms or in one of the resort’s opulent venues and restaurants. For a restaurant with the extra special edge, try Captain’s House (a cliff side restaurant overlooking the lagoon) or Kohylia (Polynesian/sushi cuisine in an outstanding setting). On such occasions premium guest service and delectable cuisine is a top priority.
From a large group of business associates to a celebratory wedding party, Grand Resort Lagonissi has the ideal venue space and highly proficient expert team, ready to make any event come to life - whatever the season.
