The highly successful MICE business forum series, the MCE South Europe, is organised by Europe Congress already for the 4th consecutive year. 2018 will see the forum being held in Thessaloniki, Greece. Building on South Europe’s vast MICE business potential, this unique forum brings together buyers from all over the world with high quality solution providers from the region. DMCs, PCOs, event management companies, convention bureaus, hotels, airlines from participating South European countries meet up with carefully selected, qualified and pre-screened buyers. MCE South Europe is offering the advantage of bringing high potential business partners together in a very comfortable, well organized event venue. All business counterparts meet face-to-face in pre-organised, match-made meetings but also have the opportunity to spend time together in really getting to know eachother, as can only happen in this boutique format event. This boutique MICE B2B forum offers the perfect mix of pre-scheduled face-to-face meetings, educational sessions presented by industry opinion leaders, plenty of networking opportunities and social events. It will be your best investment - as many of our previous and returning participants say – into finding new business opportunities and partners.
