A treasure-house of history and culture, Turkey is a gateway into a world of exciting possibilities. Located at the juncture of Europe and Asia, Turkey is a superb venue for meetings, incentives and conventions.
Turkey offers a wealth of first-class hotel accommodation and conference facilities, easy access to major cities worldwide, beautiful settings and unequalled sightseeing attractions. All this, plus wonderful weather; and at a much lower cost than at alternative destinations.
From European centers, Turkey is an ideal destination: exotic, but conveniently close. Flying time is only two or three hours by Turkish Airlines and other national carriers, into Istanbul, with transfer connections or direct flights into Izmir, Antalya and Ankara. Daily connections link Istanbul to all major cities in the United States, Middle East and Asia.
Sightseeing and entertainment programs can be fully packaged. Istanbul is among the world's great tourism destinations, with an unrivalled setting and a wealth of architectural treasures. Izmir, a city of palm trees and ancient ruins, is the gateway to the Aegean region. Charming seaside resorts such as Kusadasi, Marmaris, Bodrum and Fethiye are good choices for sales meetings, incentives and quiet getaways. Antalya, Mersin and the Mediterranean coastal resorts beckon visitors year-round to enjoy the sun, the beautiful sandy beaches and its ancient sites. Turkey's capital city, Ankara, boasts sophisticated hotels and restaurants, with easy access to fabled Cappadocia, a wondrous landscape of rockcarved churches and underground cities. Bursa too, the first Ottoman capital, offers a picturesque setting, hotels with thermal baths, and excellent skiing on Uludag (Mt. Olympos).
Turkey today is well-equipped to handle meetings, incentives and conferences of all sorts and sizes in comfort and style. Traditional Turkish hospitality, a high standard of local food and wine, and endless possibilities for entertainment and sight-seeing guarantee that any conference organized in Turkey will be a resounding success.
