Sitting in the eastern Mediterranean at the crossroads linking the three continents of Europe, Asia and Africa, the island of Cyprus really is the ideal place to meet. Nowadays, as the easternmost member of the European Union, Cyprus is a perfect meeting place attracting clients from all over the world.

Cyprus is easily accessible. The two international airports of Cyprus, one in Larnaka and one in Pafos are served regularly by major airlines

The compact size of Cyprus is what makes the island such an attractive destination as it is so easy to get from one place to another.This means that the island’s world-famous beaches, its charming mountain villages and its 10.000 years cultural heritage are accessible no matter where you stay

Having one of the most agreeable climates in Europe, Cyprus enjoys abundant sunshine with over 300 days of sunlight annually.

While in Cyprus for business you can enjoy fascinating outdoor activities all year round - from adventure and sea sports to cooking with the locals in traditional mountain villages, and from spa treatments to being entertained in a luxurious yacht.
