More Conferences & Events

A range of new facilities combined with a dynamic marketing strategy by the Jordan Tourism Board have triggered a steady increase in the meetings, incentive, conference and exhibitions sector of Jordan’s tourist industry.

Jordan's natural attributes, from the haunting, primeval starkness of Wadi Rum, to the lively centre of urban Amman; from the majestic ruins of bygone civilizations to the timeless splendour of the Dead Sea, are all unveiled as unique destinations offering breathtaking and mysterious sights, high standard accommodation, exquisite cuisine and countless activities that provide visitors with inspiration, motivation, and rejuvenation.

Horse riding in Wadi Rum.

The options for incentive experiences are endless. High achievers with a taste for adventure can enjoy a desert experience to discover the challenges and wild beauty of some of the country’s outstanding natural sites such as Wadi Rum or Petra, where 4x4 vehicles, camels or spirited Arabian horses are the preferred mode of transport. They can soar with the eagles over the towering desert mountains in a hot air balloon, learn to fly, go skydiving, or climb and explore the challenging cliff faces to discover the ancient rock carvings and man-made tombs of those who lived in the area thousands of years ago. They can experience life Bedouin-style and dine under a million stars to the haunting sounds of Arabic music.

A Dive group prepares for the plunge.

Aqaba, to the south, offers the best dive sites imaginable, where vast coral reefs are home to countless species of fish and underwater life. Here they can dive with whale sharks, dolphins and turtles and marvel at the kaleidoscopic colours beneath the warm, gentle waves of the Red Sea. Above the waves there is sailing, waterskiing, windsurfing and just about every other water-related fun activity imaginable.

Jordan is also famous for its massive ancient castles, such as Karak and Shobak, where mock battles can be fought and won (or lost), and mediaeval banquets are served under the vaulted walls and mighty ramparts. Also, there is Jerash – a Rome away from Rome, where chariot races and gladiator-style challenges are par for the course.

Jordan’s famous Dead Sea resorts provide a more relaxed, therapeutic, experience. Here are the exclusive spa resorts, where self-indulgence and pampering are the order of the day and work-worn delegates and other visitors emerge feeling at least 10 years younger and ready to face the challenges of life with newly discovered vitality.

If you want to feel good about yourself and help others, you can participate in the Dead Sea Marathon which takes place every April and raises money for The Society for the Care of Neurological Patients.

Trekking through Wadi Mujib.

Jordan’s nature reserves also provide some great adventure opportunities. Jeep safaris, cycling trips, hiking and horseriding are all excellent ways to discover the beauty, fauna and flora of this outstanding country, where thermal springs, cascading waterfalls and deep canyons provide a natural playground for energetic incentives.

All this is backed by Jordan’s commitment to providing the very best in conference and meetings venues and facilities. The new stream of luxury
