Morocco's third-largest city, Marrakesh, is a beautifully chaotic city where glimpses of medievalism can still be seen amid its modern buildings of business. A famed tourism destination since hippies, hipsters, and the Rolling Stones discovered it in the late 1960s, Marrakesh features an ancient city center that is a UNESCO World Heritage site. As a former imperial city, Marrakesh has plenty of gorgeous squares, mosques, and other architecturally important buildings. Meeting spaces in Marrakesh are among the most atmospheric and cosmopolitan in Morocco.
The city's principal airport is the Marrakesh Menara Airport (RAK), which is only 6 kilometers southwest of the city center. Direct flights come here from all over Europe, including major cities such as London, Paris, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, and Amsterdam. Flights also connect Marrakesh with Casablanca, Morocco, and some Arabian countries.
Some of the best meeting rooms in Marrakesh can be found at the Palais des Congres Conference Center, which can accommodate all types of events, from large-scale conferences to small networking functions. The center features two auditoriums ideal for large conferences, a large ballroom that can host up to 2,000 guests, large exhibition halls, and meeting rooms with flexible space.
If you're looking for unique meeting venues in Marrakesh, you can easily find them in boutique hotels housed in former palaces with interior courtyards. Probably the most famous hotel in the city is the spectacular, 135-room La Mamounia Resort (formerly the legendary Moroccan Palace), which features 9,151 square feet of function space across four meeting rooms.
Other hotel venues include the 503-room Movenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi, which is part of the Palais des Congres Conference Center; the 252-room Pullman Marrakesh Palmeraie Resort & Spa, which opened in March 2012 and has 10 function rooms, the largest of which can host up to 400 people; the 139-room Four Seasons Resort Marrakesh, which has 31,370 square feet of event space across 12 meeting rooms; and the 18-room Les Borjs de la Kasbah, which has one meeting room for 33 people.
