CIRM Annual Conference & AGM 2019

2nd - 4th April 2019, Vouliagmeni, Greece



Venue information

The CIRM Annual Conference & AGM 2019 will take place over 3 days from 2 - 4 April 2019, at the Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso hotel in the area of Vouliagmeni, Greece. The hotel is just 18km from Athens city centre and 19km from Athens International Airport (fare approx. €35).




The hotel is ideal for the CIRM conference, having plenty of outside space, great food and an award-winning spa. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout. The hotel is of our usual standard – we have contracted 60 rooms (but this can be increased based on demand).



We have another hotel block reserved at the 4-star Amarilia just across the road (first come-first served, only 20 rooms available), also with free Wi-Fi throughout. This hotel costs less, with good clean rooms.

Both hotels are one minute from the beach. Athens is 20 mins by car, traffic permitting.

Local Attractions:
* Spa & Thalassotherapy Center
* Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion
* Lake of Vouliagmeni
* Ancient Town of Thorikos at Lavrio
* Vouliagmeni Tennis Club
* Vorres Museum in Peania
* Vouliagmeni & Glyfada Yacht Marina
* ‘Koutouki’ Cave in Peania
* Glyfada 18-hole Golf Course

According to the ancient Greeks, a healthy mind leads to a healthy body... so CIRM will once again hold free daily yoga classes courtesy of Darja. Delegates and partners are welcome to join!
