  • Published by Vedat
The first modern, large-scale convention center on Turkey’s Aegean coast in Kuşadası is officially opened.

ephesus-ccThe Ephesus Convention Center located 45-minutes from Izmir Adnan Menderes International Airport, 10 minutes from the Port of Kuşadası, which handles 700 cruise ships per year, and 55-minute flight from Istanbul Ataturk International Airport will host international standard events with its over 43,000 square meters of space.

The Ephesus Convention Center’s interior spaces are adaptable to a wide range of functions and provide a full range of services. The Center’s large foyers with cathedral ceilings are ideal as registration points and reception areas outside both the meeting facilities and the exhibition hall, in addition to serving as supplementary interior exhibition space for particularly large exhibitions.

The Ephesus Convention center utilizes the latest Eco-friendly technologies, reducing its environmental impact and carbon footprint. Our advanced energy management system cuts power usage by over 40%, and an on-site water recycling plant, featuring a 50,000-liter rain and gray water collector, is used to water the Center’s lushly landscaped grounds. We are committed to sustainability in everything we do, whether by sourcing our fruits and vegetables locally or ensuring that recycled materials are used wherever possible. We place the same emphasis on human safety that we do on environmental safety, and our fire protection system was designed by an expert and is certified to meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards.

ephesus-cc2At the Ephesus Convention Center, delegates of events have the opportunity to experience, explore and learn beyond the meeting room to encompass ancient monuments of architecture, city planning, medicine and the three great monotheistic religions, not only at Ephesus, the ancient Greek city famous with the Celsus Library, but also at other nearby ancient sites, including Priene, Didyma, Sardis and Miletus, all of which are easily accessible from Kuşadası.

As a major Mediterranean turn-around port for some of the world’s top cruise lines, Kuşadası offers a wide selection of superior accommodations. Within walking distance of the Ephesus Convention Center, there are over 1,000 international quality guestrooms at four- and five-star properties. Within just a 15-minute drive, you enjoy an even wider selection, with delegates having an additional 5,000 rooms at their disposal, including luxury accommodations at the Kuşadası International Golf Resort, which will feature an 18-hole, par 72 course.

Izmir, the third largest city in Turkey, offers a wide selection of accommodations including top international hotel brands, like Hilton, Swissôtel and Mövenpick, as well as boutique hotels. Izmir features a cosmopolitan mix of exciting entertainment options and cultural attractions and is less than an hour away from the Ephesus Convention Center, making it possible to incorporate events in Izmir into your conference program.
