Climate
The island is known as one of Europe’s sunniest, with over 300 days of sunshine every year, this means that outdoor activities and events are almost always a possibility.

Safety
Cyprus is regularly ranked in European and global rankings as one of the safest small nation-states.

Connectivity
Located in the eastern Mediterranean, between Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa; Cyprus has been a natural meeting place for centuries. Today, the island’s two international airports connect Cyprus to the world with a multitude of daily international routes.

Outdoor Activities
With its crystal clear waters, sandy beaches, pine-covered mountain ranges, picturesque villages dotted with vineyards and wineries, Cyprus offers the ultimate playground for outdoor activities. Contact one of our DMC members for ideas and suggestions.

History & Culture
Boasting 10,000 years of history, visitors to Cyprus can experience the island’s rich heritage. From ancient temples and roman theatres to byzantine monasteries and medieval castles.

Hotels
Cyprus, as a mature travel destination, has a large collection of five and four-star options to match any event. From large conference hotels to boutique properties for smaller incentive trips and everything in between. Check out CIMA’s hotel members for inspiration.

Infrastructure & Logistics
Due to the country’s small size, only 3 hours drive east to west; MICE delegates have the opportunity to explore the whole island and its variety of landscapes in a relatively short period, while the excellent road network helps in keeping transit times short.

Venues
From medieval castle courtyards to ancient amphitheatres and a large selection of modern venues; Cyprus has a variety of sites to choose from for your next event. Contact one of our DMC members for ideas and suggestions.

Cuisine
Drawing inspiration from Greek and Levantine influences, Cypriot cuisine offers something in all seasons. The island is well known for its variety of restaurants that cater to all tastes.

Hospitality
Bringing it all together is Cyprus’ legendary hospitality, a hearty “Kalimera” and a big smile go a long way to make your guest feel welcome from arrival to departure.
