From the unspoiled beaches of Agadir to the dynamic centre of commerce that is Marrakech, Morocco offers a wealth of exotic locations to the event organiser.
Between the eternal snows of the Atlas Mountains and the burning desert sand, Marrakech has been fashioned just like a work of art. Over the years, wonderful palaces , great mosques, impressive monuments, riads and luxurious gardens emerged from the ground. This fabled city pulsates with energy. Every road leads to the famous Jemaa el Fna Square where there is always a kaleidoscope of colour and activity. Here musicians, dancers and fire eaters rub shoulders with public scribes, story tellers, acrobats and vendors of fresh orange juice and roasted nuts. In the evening the lamps are lit and the hot food stalls are set up. Before long the balm of nightfall is accompanied by the delicious smells of roasting meats, couscous, harira and freshly baked doughnuts.
There is a strong tradition in Morocco of high quality craftwork and in Marrakech the leatherwork is of a particular high quality.
The financial capital and internationally expanding metropolis, Casablanca owes its name to the white houses gently growing old along its ramparts. Completely rebuilt from 1920 onwards, it is now a perfect example of successful colonial urban development. Situated on the Atlantic Coast it has the largest artificial port in the world and is the biggest city in Morocco resulting in excellent connections with the rest of the country by air, road or rail.
During the day Casablanca is alive with dynamism, during the evening visitors can taste the sea breeze on the famous sea front and enjoy its fashionable restaurants, nightclubs and hotels such as the Royal Mansour, Hyatt Regency and many more. With is broad tree lined boulevards, modern architecture and abundance of cafe life, Casablanca has an atmosphere all of its own.
If you are looking for a beautiful unspoiled stretch of coast, Agadir is the perfect base.
