Why Limassol?


Limassol is the second largest city on the island in population and urban area. The city holds a stunningly rich history of 4000 years with marvelous ancient monuments still standing, including the Kourion Amphitheater and the Kolossi Castle.

We chose Limassol as the city to host the 6th European SGW in Cyprus for a variety of reasons: 

  • The first reason is its accessibility from overseas. Limassol lies in the middle of the two International Airports of the island, a mere 60 Km from the Paphos International Airport and 66Km from the Larnaca International Airport.
  • The second reason is the Cyprus University of Technology that is established in the City. The University has agreed to help us in hosting the event by providing their premises. Additionally the Eratosthenes Centre Of Excellence, a world-class Digital Innovation Hub for Earth Observation, space technology and Geospatial Information is established in the university and have agreed to provide us with further support in organising the event.
  • Another reason is the ease for travel and the expats-friendly environment of the city. Public transport network is well-covering the city, there is a wide availability of accommodation for each budget and the picturesque views of the coast side along with the variety of available experiences ranked Limassol as the 3rd up-and-coming destination in the world by Trip-Advisor.
