Megaron Athens International Conference Centre

The Megaron Athens International Conference Centre (M.A.I.C.C.) is one of the finest and most technologically advanced conference venues in Europe. Situated in the city centre, yet surrounded by its own extensive landscaped gardens, Megaron offers a stunning environment, exceptional aesthetics, cutting edge technology and unrivalled client service. MAICC has hosted some of the most important congresses in Greece.

The Megaron Athens International Congress Centre was conceived and built with great respect for the environment and green urban planning. For whilst the original building faces straight onto one of Athens’ major avenues, the international congress centre has been incorporated into the park right next to it with such skill that it in no way infringes on it.

The technology and stage systems incorporated into the halls are at the forefront of technology, whilst all sound and audio visual systems are connected to the in house broadcast standard recording studio which enables sound and video recording in broadcast format.
