The harbour of Kos and the resorts of Rhodes have certainly developed in recent years into the nightspot "Meccas" of Greece. As soon as the night falls the town of Kos is festooned with reflections of lights and music propped up by innumerable bars. The main nightclubs area lies on the northern part of the town, which is home to some famed discos and replete with youthful joints. As for the famous Rhodian nightlife, one is presented with an endless list of choices ranging from small traditional taverns to elegant restaurants serving Greek and international cuisine, along with bars to suit all tastes, discos and a luxurious seaside casino. Undoubtedly the crowning jewel of exciting night entertainment in Rhodes is currently the youth dominated resort of Faliraki, offering everything from wild reveling to bungee jumping.

The geographic location, easy access, history, cultural tradition and tourist infrastructure of the Dodecanese islands have established them as the ideal places for conferences. Kos is much celebrated as the source of inspiration for medics and medicine related professionals all over the world. Resorts in Rhodes on the other hand have held a very long list of meetings, of high importance, including the European Union summit in December 1988, the meeting of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the European Conservative Party Convention, and hundreds more, organized by both official governmental bodies and private companies. Conventions, meetings and incentives can be held in venues that range from ancient open-air theatres to medieval palaces, ultra-modern hotels and fully equipped conference centres. It should also be mentioned that significant institutions from Greece and abroad have been frequently holding conferences in smaller Dodecanesean island, taking advantage of the delightful unspoiled island colour, the local hospitality and personalized entertainment. Following their example the small elusive to tourism island of Halki was turned in 1980s into a summer UNESCO youth conference centre, attracting even more the attention of conference organizers.
