3. Greek situation and the ISME World Conference

We are confident that the 30th ISME World Conference will be a very enjoyable and positive experience for all participants. The Conference Organising Committee (COG) are creating a wonderful programme of events for our week together in July.

  • Be assured (a) that Thessaloniki is a convenient, secure and an excellent venue for our World Conference and (b) that the financial underpinning for the conference is in place and is not related to the Greek economic situation -prudent financial management in the past means that ISME and the local COG are not dependent on the Greek economy to run a successful conference.
  • Members of the ISME Board visited the scheduled venues last summer and were very impressed by the quality of the accommodation, local management expertise and the overall location.
  • The planning for the World Conference and associated ISME Commission Seminars across Greece is highly advanced and taking shape very satisfactorily.
  • The conference dates (being the middle of the traditional summer holidays) guarantee a quiet environment in the city. Greece is a popular tourist destination and the World Conference has attracted record numbers of submissions to attend from both would-be presenters and performing groups.
  • We are delighted that there has been so much international interest by ISME Members (new and old) in attending the conference.
