International Convention
The 2016 International Convention will be held in Nice, France
Located on the French Riviera in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, blessed by a sunny, temperate climate, with beautiful beaches, lovely seaside promenade, interesting museums, famous city landmarks and other tourist attractions, Nice looks forward to welcoming you to the Zonta International 63rd Convention. The Colline du Chateau overlooking the Baie des Anges and harbour offers a spectacular vantage point overlooking the city. Not much is left of its ruined castle besides crumbling walls. Still, climbing up the stairs to reach the platforms 90 metres above Nice is well worth the view. Nice is also known for several museums such as the Museum of Asian Art, Musee Chagall, Musee Matisse, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and the Musee des Beaux-Arts. The old town (Vieux Nice) beneath the hill is a maze of streets and alleys, with many picturesque houses, boutiques and home to the daily flower and fruit market of the Cours Saleya. Eating options are some of the best you’ll find in France, the nightlife is buzzing and the art scene thriving. The Convention will be held at the completely renovated Acropolis Convention Center. Designed by architects Buzzi, Bernasconi, and Baptiste with gardens, fountains, and numerous works of art, the Acropolis was inaugurated in May 1985 when the prestigious Apollo auditorium was completed. Come and discover or rediscover Nice, the city of multiple perfumes and flavors, gentle lifestyle, fantastic beauty and exceptional climate. Get ready for a wonderful Convention, empowering women – TOGETHER!
