General Information about Beirut, Lebanon, for Meeting Planners
If you’re in Beirut for a conference, it may be of interest to learn about the city around you. As the whole world is aware, the city is struggling with unrest, even after the end of the Lebanon War, and is still in the midst of working to transform itself. Well worth a visit, it would nevertheless be prudent to check the state of political affairs before making that decision. Those who do find themselves in Beirut invariably have an unforgettable experience and enjoy the vast beauty of the coastal waters that fringe the city, along with the pleasant Mediterranean climate. At one time, Beirut was on the short list of the world’s top ten tourist destinations. Logic has it that it will be again.

Beirut Food Choices for Convention Attendees
In between conference meetings, try the exciting Lebanese in Beirut. Tawlet Souk el Tayeb is thought to be one of the best restaurants in Beirut, especially if you’re looking for delectable, authentic Lebanese fare and a buffet. The price may seem a bit high, but not when you consider the overwhelming variety to choose from. Fern Ghattas offers pizza and fresh bakery items, along with mouth-watering local cuisine. Mounir also cooks beautiful Lebanese food and offers stunning views, along with excellent service and presentation. Reserve one of the terrace tables for an optimal experience here.
Beirut Attractions for Conference Delegates
Allow enough time during your conference to see the fabulous sites in Beirut. You might visit the Temples of Baalbek, impressive ancient ruins thousands of years old, very well-preserved. Or go with some of your fellow meeting attendees to the Jeita Grotto, just north of Beirut. You’ll discover magnificent caverns and geological formations underground. If you don’t have much time, take in the National Museum of Beirut, small but memorable repository of archaeological treasures. Be sure to watch the museum’s video about the civil war, a mustn’t miss!
