The natural beauty of this ancient landscape is a blend of golden sun, clear, crystal blue water and deep, soothing green, set against a backdrop of baked orange earth that has sheltered civilization for over 8,000 years.
Nestled among fragrant pines and spreading olive trees in the wooded hills overlooking the Port of Kusadasi, the Ephesus Convention Center commands expansive views of the shimmering Aegean, stretching far to the horizon where the turquoise sea meets the blue sky.
This ancient landscape with its beaches and secluded coves, its pine forests and riverbeds, and rough terrain dotted with rocky outcroppings where hardy wild agave plants stand as tall as a grown person, is blessed with over 300 sunny days every year.
The same golden Aegean sun that bathes the artifacts of bygone civilizations in awarm light nurtures these rugged hills and fertile valleys that are home to the region’s famed vineyards. Nearby Urla produces wines that have earned praise from the world’s leading wine expert, Robert Parker, who rated them ‘‘outstanding’’.
Also close by is the traditional Aegeanvillage of Şirince where, in addition to the usual red and white wines, they also make apple, apricot, blackberry, blueberry, creamberry, mulberry, peach, quince, sour Morello cherry and strawberry wines.
The Ephesus Convention Center itself is in a setting of great beauty, in the cleft of two wooded hills facing the Aegean, and the grounds of this world-class, purpose-built facility cover 50,000 square meters (538,195 sq. ft.) of developed land that is impeccably landscaped, offering you the option of planning a variety of al fresco events and evenoutdoor exhibitions, combined with an equally expansive 43,000 square meters (462,680 sq. ft.) of usable indoor space.

The Ephesus Convention Center inherits a tradition of bringing people together for important events, a heritage not only as a gathering place but also as a setting for the performing arts and gala spectacles.
Set slightly apart from the center of the ancient city of Ephesus lie the ruins of a Hellenistic amphitheater that was the largest ever built in Anatolia, capable of seating up to 25,000 yet designed to amplify the human voice so even those seated farthest from the stage couldclearly hear every whisper spoken by the actors.
The Ephesus Convention Center builds on this heritage of acoustic excellence, offering state-of-the-art audio-visual technology and the finest concert hall quality acoustics. The centerpiece of the 3,000-person capacity, Grand Auditorium, is its custom-built, cutting-edge Reverberation Diffuser Cylinder, or ‘‘Sofita’’, designed by one of the world’s top acoustical engineers, that achieves an unparalleled clarity and quality of sound.
Unlike an ancient amphitheater, however, no matter where conference attendees are seated they will enjoy an excellent view of the proceedings – all of our facilities are equipped with the latest in cutting-edge projection and video technology. Featuring seating capacity for up to 800 attendees, another auditorium on the lower level provides the same high technology for smaller events.
Today, thankfully stone seats have gone out of fashion and the seats in both of the Ephesus Convention Center’s auditoriums are ergonomically designed and madeusing the highest quality materials by the world’s leading experts in seating. Additionally, each of the Center’s 35 break-out and meeting rooms deploy our tailor-made services and high technology in a more intimate setting.
