Health Conferences and Workshops in Varadero

The Melia's Marina Varadero hotel and five star location for a conference.

Not only do health conferences take place in Cuba’s capital city, Havana, but they have also been scheduled in the resort town of Varadero, about an hour’s drive from the city.

The most popular places for conference locations is in one of three five star hotels in Varadero.  Two of those hotels are the Meliá Cuba brand, the Meliá Marina Varadero, and the Meliá Varadero.  The other hotel used for a conference site is the Iberostar Laguna Azul.

Varadero is seen as a more relaxing environment in which to hold a conference because attendance can also include some time to explore the town and the amazing beaches on the Hicacos peninsula.

Some of the examples of these recent conferences include the 2016 the Center of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) international workshop on “Emerging Targeted Therapies in Cancer & Autoimmunity” at the Iberostar Laguna Azul Hotel.
