Celebrated as the heartland of Persian culture for over 2000 years, Shiraz has become synonymous with education, nightingales, poetry, flowers and love. The cultural capital of Iran, Shiraz is home to outstanding Iranian poets, splendid gardens, exquisite mosques and whispered echoes of ancient sophistication that reward those who linger beyond the customary excursion to nearby Persepolis – the area’s major tourist destination. One of the great wonders of the ancient world, Persepolis is an eclectic set of structures which embodies not just a grand architectural scheme but also a grand idea.

The welcome reception will be in Persepolis while one of the most enchanting Shiraz gardens welcomes attendees for Gala Dinner.
