As summer holidaymakers check out, the autumn season brings conference and exhibition delegates striding through Londa’s reception doors. Busy executives also prefer the superior comfort and relaxation of 5 star luxury and a personalised boutique lifestyle experience – especially after a long day of seminars, meetings and appointments!
Conveniently located at both the urban centre and the Mediterranean Sea edge, Londa is a typically preferred boutique accommodation for many international visitors attending the business events taking place between now and the end of the year, including at the hotel itself. Londa conference facilities offer luxury leather seating in the Executive Boardroom and Meeting Room, while corporate events, receptions and dinners of up to 150 guests are held in the open air pool bar area.
Meanwhile, across the city, Limassol is host to a full calendar of events including, leisure, entertainment, hospitality sport, art, culture, media, education, finance, business, industry and trade. September 2019 is no exception…
Dedicated to the retail Fintech industry
iFX Expo, global B2B giant and quarterly trade show held across Europe and Asia returns to Limassol on Friday 20th September. The one day event is dedicated to the retail Fintech industry, aimed at connecting leading technology, blockchain and liquidity providers with Forex, banks, affiliates, and also introducing brokers, investors and white label partners. Previous expos have attracted more than 1,000 exhibitors and 30,000 attendees from around the world.
There’s even a post Expo event in the evening for attendees to further network at “The Gathering”, to be held at Limassol’s Columbia Beach Bar. Its Cuban themed vibe at the edge of a Mediterranean beach at sunset offers an informal way to mingle and chat with a chilled drink to hand.
Be up close and personal with favourite supercars
Ever since its 17 million euro transformation to a stunning 650-berth modern Marina in 2016, Limassol Old Port has gone from strength to strength as a major international venue on the eastern Mediterranean for attracting global trade and industry players to Cyprus.
Not least, to the increasingly prestigious Limassol Motor Show and Motion, now extended to more than 2,000 sqm of exhibiting space. The two day event (Sat 21 | Sun 22), now in its third year, offers a dazzling display of top of the range cars and motorcycles from brands such as Lexus, Toyota and Yamaha, as well as related industry products and services. Visitors will, once again, have free entrance, and a unique opportunity to be up close and personal with their favourite supercars, classic cars, 4 x 4s, and much more.
Platform to promote Cypriot products and services
Just days later, Limassol Marina continues to provide its gleaming new harbour location to further boost the international business profile of Cyprus. The World Trade Centre is to stage its 6th and largest exhibition yet of Cypriot products and services at the Tpakasol Cultural Centre on the 27th, 28th and 29th, and is also free entrance.
The exhibition, entitled “Made in Cyprus”, is aimed at giving a significant platform to promote Cypriot products and services to both local and international audiences. As a member of the World Trade Centres Association, WTC Cyprus is fully integrated into a network of 300 World Trade Centres with 750,000 affiliated companies in 90 countries on six continents.
A recognised global business and services centre
Over the last two decades, Cyprus has continued to transform its economy to become a recognised global business and services centre for finance and real estate as well as for tourism. Combined, all three sectors are estimated to bring in more than three quarters (80 per cent) of the island’s income and employment. Business and economic growth hit nearly 4 per cent in 2018 with the professional services sector achieving an average rise of 6–7 per cent over 24 months.
Cyprus was also ranked 57th out of 190 in the World Bank’s 2019 ‘Doing Business’ report and is considered to be among the top five “Eurozone performers”, placed 16th in ranking per capita income based upon purchasing power, according to the World Bank’s Development Report.
Over 3,000 products and services displayed
The “Made in Cyprus” event in Limassol, which undoubtedly helps to further support the island’s continued growth in international trade is backed by the Ministry of Energy, Commerce and Industry, and includes support by the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCi) and the Cyprus International Business Association.
In only a short period of time, over 3,000 products and services have been displayed by over 300 exhibitors specialising in Cypriot merchandise. Interest in discovering the many home-grown products and services at “Made in Cyprus” has been shown by more than 30,000 visitors from all corners of the globe.
