Noreen Thompson, Director of marketing and events, Delion Global
I love traditional Cypriot hospitality, and the warm climate is very attractive. Cyprus has a combination of good modern infrastructure and beautiful historic sites, which overall make it a great destination.
The Four Seasons hotel offers a good mix of that hospitality with some really cool outdoor spaces. Delion Global hosts a lot of high-end executive meetings and the hotel would work very well for these types of events because the service, meeting spaces and cuisine are all excellent.
I absolutely love the Kourion Theatre. As soon as I saw it I had visions of hosting amazing gala dinners - the space is perfect for creating that 'wow' factor.
The beauty of Cyprus is that you can combine business and pleasure really well. To be able to undertake activities in the mountains, followed by wine tastings at local vineyards, is a great way to see the destination in a short space of time. Cyprus would work well for either 10-delegate meetings or a conference for 1,000.

Cyprus is amazing, especially Limassol now the city's infrastructure has been upgraded. The seafront is beautiful, the new marina has great venues and the hotels are excellent for high-end incentives. There are many improvements going on, including the Le Meridien Limassol Spa & Resort and the Four Seasons, which will be renovated this winter.
Cyprus is suited to small groups, and the sea and mountains make it a lovely destination for incentives.
We recently delivered an event for a client on the island, taking a catamaran along the seafront and hosting a beach barbecue. There are also the mountains, which are ideal for the winter, and you can organise fun activities in the forests.
Cyprus is a fantastic, under-used place. It is a bit further away than some of the other Mediterranean destinations, but the weather is better. Admittedly it is easier to get to Spain, Portugal or France, but I think Cyprus has more to offer than some of these destinations.
