One of the leading cosmetic brands in the world, AVON, chose a beautiful Greek island for their sales award trip. A brand that supports women every hour of the day, from morning to night, chose Crete that offers entertainment for every person for every hour of the day. Crete is a feast for the senses, pristine nature, thousands of years culture, amazing and unique cuisine, long pink beaches and of course crystal blue waters. One of the secrets of this island is that there are many places and venues appropriate for any kind of event.
In this case, the “Garden of Senses” was the perfect scenery for a summer Gala dinner for the beautiful ladies of AVON. An Oscar night was designed by EZGReece DMC with red velvet and gold astonishing colours. Highlight of the night was the singer George Zervos and his band, which got everyone excited with their music and positive energy.

A high-end group of young adult travelers called YPO chose Greece as their summer destination, and EZGreece DMC to be their guide and design for them the ultimate experience to see Greece in six days.
Our travelers had the chance to travel back in Greek mythology and feel the ancient Greek spirit by chasing Chronos, the God of Time, according to Greek mythology. During these six days our guests experienced the Greek philoxenia accompanied by the natural beauties of the Greek west coast. The adventure started in Athens, from there we moved on to the island of Lefkada characterized by steep cliffs leading to extensive beaches with crystal blue waters that call everyone for a dive. The chase of Chronos led us to explore the beauties of the underworld and discover what lies ahead in the dark of Perama cave. Crawling around the cave trying to solve the mystery of Chronos we reached Zagori. There, we found our selves not able to resist to the crystal blue springs and blue lakes that surrounding the scenery.
The highlights of the adventure? We crossed rivers, we hiked rocky trails, we chose kayak to see the Vikos gorge to camp and spend the night on a stunning private beach full of pines lying on the golden sand leading to emerald waters. For one more time EZGreece DMC created moments that will last for a life time. Life is moments and our passion for new experiences is a way of thinking, this is what we do, and we do it great.

Many of these Greek beaches have been awarded the blue flag under the Blue Flags of Europe Program. Some of the oldest European civilizations developed on the Greek islands (Cycladic, Minoan civilizations, etc.), so therefore the islands have unique archeological sites, a distinctive architectural heritage and the fascinating local traditions of a centuries-old and multifaceted civilization. The ideal climate, safe waters, premium hospitality services and small distances between ports and coasts, have made the Greek islands extremely popular for MICE tourism.
Greece is a beloved destination and in addition to the more familiar islands, the mainland offers plenty of options for a classic Mediterranean experience! Enjoy a wealth of archaeological sites, fascinating culture, spectacular coastline and picture-perfect scenery! Many locations in South Greece (Peloponnese) or North Greece (Thessaloniki, Halkidiki, Volos) offer five-star hotels and conference venues with state-of-the-art facilities that constitute an ideal MICE destination in Greece!
