Lebanon on the move ...

The Middle Eastern destination of Lebanon is paving the way for more MICE and conference tourism. With an internation travel trade show in May 2018 and a fam trip for no less than 70 French agencies, the destination is opening up to conference organisers seeking for a rather unknown experience.

New five-star capacity in Beirut

More business tourism or conference delegates requires capacity - and the destination is keeping up in terms of infrastructure as well, with the latest addition to the chain of Lancaster Hotels & Suites. Lancaster Eden Bay Hotel, a five-star property with 144 sea-view guest rooms, opened its doors on June 15th in Rauouche, a coastal neighbourhood of Beirut.

The hotel is perfect for MICE with a ballroom that can accommodate up to 600 pax in banquet, 2 direct sea view meeting rooms in addition to 2 other breakout rooms. Full sea view SPA & Gym, as well as indoor and outdoor pools, several outlets and beach summer activities are also part of the complex.
