Post-Medicon Turkey

April 29, 2018 – May 2, 2018 all-day
Marmaris, Ephesus and Izmir

This year’s post Medicon will bring for the first time two countries together: Greece, and our neighbor, Turkey. A trip from Rhodes to Izmir, along the Aegean Coast, is the best way to celebrate the newest member to Med MDIO and a long friendship between our districts!
