Thessaloniki is a vibrant and modern European city, one of the most important trade and business centres in the Balkans with great history dating back to around 315 BC. The city is situated strategically in Macedonia, Northern Greece, and is easily accessible from all over the world. Nearby archaeological sites from the time of Alexander the Great and Roman and Byzantine times offer great opportunities for sightseeing before or after the congress.
