Location Details

Paphos is a coastal city in the southwest of Cyprus and the capital of Paphos District. In antiquity, two locations were called Paphos: Old Paphos and New Paphos. The currently inhabited city, New Paphos, lies on the Mediterranean coast, about 50 km (31.07 mi) west of Limassol (the biggest port on the island). 

Paphos is also the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite and is an open air museum of Byzantine churches and Roman ruins interspersed with al fresco restaurants and café bars.

The Annabelle is the closest hotel to Paphos’s picturesque fishing harbour, ancient port and the UNESCO-listed House of Dionysos, containing Cyprus’s world-renowned Roman mosaics.

Paphos International Airport is the country's second-largest airport and is 16 km away from The Annabelle. The drive time is approximately 20 minutes. 

Transport

Local Cyprus Airports

The nearest airport to The Annabelle is Paphos International Airport (PFO), only a 20 minute drive from the hotel. However, given the time of year flights into PFO may be limited so you may wish to fly into Larnaca International Airport (LCA) which is approximately a 1 hour and 30 minute drive from the hotel.

One example and an unforgettable experience is one of the most remarkable testimonies of Roman art on the island, the Roman villas with their unique floor mosaics, which will be our first stop. Another interesting site to visit is the Tombs of the Kings. The last stop takes us out of Paphos to the birthplace of Aphrodite – Petra tou Romiouor known also as Aphrodite Rock.

If you have any animations or videos we do advise to run through the presentation with the AV tech to make sure everything is compatible. We also advise that all speakers make themselves known to the AV tech in the conference room immediately before your session beings. The AV tech will apply your microphone and provide a laser pointer should you have an accompanying presentation. We prefer speakers to use our master laptop to run presentations from, however, if you prefer to use your own laptop, please notify us in advance.

It is important that all speakers adhere to their presentation time and respect their fellow presenters. A visual traffic light aide will be available to warn presenters and the audience as your time decreases.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to approach our AV tech or a member of the Fusion team.

Helpful Tips for Presentation Slides

Aspect Ratio: On Screen Show (16:9) and in Landscape Orientation; in any other format (i.e 4:3) your presentation will not fill our screens.
Font Size: Minimum font size used should be 24pt. 
File Type: Please safe your presentation in PPT or PPTS format. 
Video Clips: Please save these separately and do not build them into the PowerPoint. Videos will be played via the AV control desk using the master laptop.

Displaying & Presenting Your Poster

During conference registration if you are presenting a poster please request a poster number from the registration desk.
