Athens as a business destination

Metropolitan Expo exhibition centre is located at Athens International Airport “Elefterios Venizelos” just 2kms after the Airport buildings and 3 minutes from the metro and suburban railway station. Access from the airport to the exhibition centre is more than easy, as it’s just 3’ from the Airport and Metro –subway’s station, with direct internal connection by shuttle bus.
The airport and the exhibition centre are located 33 km southeast of Athens and is easily accessible via Atttiki Odos, a six-lane motorway (the Athens City Ring Road). Public transportation to Athens is provided by express airport shuttles on a 24-hour basis, while a direct Metro line connects the airport to the city center (Syntagma square) in less than 40 minutes. A taxi ride from the airport to the city center cots between 25-40 Euros. Duration approximately 40 minutes.
