Londonderry

The spotlight shone on Londonderry - also known as Derry - in July when it was named the UK's City of Culture for 2013.

Istria


The Istrian peninsula, located in the western-most part of Croatia, offers a new Kempinski and culinary delights such as olive oil and truffles.


Damascus


The Syrian capital lays strong claim to being the oldest city in the world, and delegates can explore the medinas of the massive, maze-like Old City while enjoying the modern comforts of hotels such as the Four Seasons.

Istanbul


With its reputation as a melting pot of culture and history, a wealth of luxury venues and its new crown as Capital of Culture for 2010, it’s been a strong year for Istanbul’s C&I appeal.

Sharjah


Although less familiar to many than Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sharjah is keen to become known as the region's cultural hub, and is investing in a wealth of new developments to support the anticipated tourism interest.
