The successful events were organized in response to growing demand from UK travel agents requesting more information about the destination.

In collaboration with valued travel partners: Intra Travel Mice; Unison Turkey Travel and Event; Travel Shop Turkey; Ela Resort Hotel; Dalaman Airport and the Association of Turkish Travel Agencies; the Turkish Tourism Office took to the road to update agents on the latest news and developments within the country. A number of prizes were also given including several holiday prizes to Turkey, generously donated by all the exhibitors.

The events took place at the following venues:

•             Monday 9th November – Birmingham - Hilton Metropole Hotels

•             Tuesday 10th November – Manchester – Tiger Tiger

•             Wednesday 11th November – Newcastle - Tiger Tiger

•             Thursday 12th November – Glasgow – Roma Restaurant

Ali Selcuk Can, Director of the Turkish Culture and Tourism Office in London, said, “Face to face training is of paramount importance for front line travel agents today and with Turkey more so than ever. Turkey is such a unique and diverse destination abundant with delicious cuisine, historic and archaeological sites, horticulture, stunning beaches, adventure and sports. We felt it important to address the demand with more training for agents by making this significant investment. Also I would like to thank our Turkish Consul General in Edinburg Mr. Semih Lutfu Turgut for his attendance to our Newcastle and Glasgow road shows”.

He added, “Earlier this year, we bolstered our training efforts by launching our own dedicated online training tool hosted by OTT so now agents have all the essential destination information right at their fingertips. We are already looking at dates for next year’s roadshow since it was so successful.”
