Every year, the doers of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa unite at the crossroads – Limassol’s coast – to brainstorm ideas, forge new connections and strengthen collaboration within the region. “It will be a truly immersive city experience – the city center, as well as the seaside promenade, will be full of festival activities during two Reflect days. Essentially, we’re transforming the city – including its squares, restaurants, and parks – into what we call a playground of doers,” says Stylianos Lambrou, co-founder of Reflect.
