Meetings, Incentives & Events

Kasım 22nd, 2016 | by administrator

Istanbul is one of the world’s most exciting conference destinations and is an increasingly popular choice for the world’s leading international associations, and meeting planners.Istanbul is home to numerous members of the ICCA, the International Congress and Convention Association, which is the most extensive and prominent meetings organization in the world.
Istanbul’s conference appeal is proven, and one factor behind this is that Istanbul has three separate conference and exhibition areas:
The Conference Valley,
The Airport & Exhibition District and
The Business & Financial District.
These cluster areas feature a combination of accommodations, meeting facilities, and exhibition space. They can be used individually or thanks to Istanbul’s transportation infrastructure and particularly the Istanbul metro, linked together for events with 10,000 or more participants.
