SoCraTes Crete 2024

After 4 iterations of AgileCrete, 4 iterations of AgileCrete + SoCraTes Crete, SoCrates Crete comes back in 2024 this autumn in Rethymno, Crete!! 🎉 🥳 🚀

Crete, Chania, Balos

SoCraTes Crete 2024 will take place in a new amazing location!

From 25/10 to 28/10 we will meet, interact, discuss and have fun, in a brand-new location in Rethymno. With its charming Venetian Old Town, its colorful market and beautiful beach stretching along its coastline, Rethymno is the perfect scenario for this year’s edition.

A Retreat in a Dream Setting

Located in Adelianos Kampos, few minutes away from the beautiful city of Rethymno, Aquila Rythimna beach will be our host for SoCraTes Crete 2024. In a beautiful setting the beachfront resort offers all comforts possible for our un‑convention: great indoor and outdoor facilities, exquisite restaurants, cozy rooms, pools and much much more. Special mention to the dedicated facilities of the kids club, providing an exciting program for the little ones while the big ones are connecting!

Aquila Rithymna Beach hotel will allow SoCraTes Crete to function as the perfect retreat while keeping characteristics you’ve all enjoyed in the previous years.
