Antalya Convention Bureau has published its annual Meeting & Incentive Guide for 2018. The guide aims to promote meetings and congress potential of Antalya.
Governor of Antalya Münir Karaloğlu, Deputy Chairman of CHP and Member of Parliament Cetin Osman Budak, President of Antalya Promotion Foundation Yeliz Gül Ege, Provincial Director of Culture and Tourism İbrahim Acar, Metropolitan Municipality President Advisor İbrahim Evrim, Director of Antalya Museum Mustafa Demirel attended the official launch event of the Meeting & Incentive Guide 2018.
The Governor Karaloğlu remarked the need to extend the tourism season in Antalya and added “Congress season starts at the end of autumn and ends in the first quarter of Spring. There is no congress in the summer season. One of the most powerful instruments to extend the season is congresses. Antalya has approximate 200.000 seating capacity. We have hundreds of congress centers. The largest congress center in Europe is located in Antalya at Expo with 5.000 seating capacity. Our municipalities have congress centers. Antalya has a very serious congressional potential. Antalya also has experience like G20 and EXPO. It is absolutely necessary to promote Antalya and make promotional material. Some important Hotels with Congress centers and facilities are not in the Meeting Planner Guide. I expect that the number of Antalya Convention Bureau members will increase and we will show up with a more satisfying catalog.
“Perge” on the Cover of Meeting and Incentive Planner Guide 2018
President of Antalya Promotion Foundation Yeliz Gül Ege said that “Perge was choosen for the cover of “Meeting and Incentive Planner Guide 2018”, an important ancient city close to Antalya.
The aim of the Bureau is to promote the congress potential and facilities of Antalya as an ideal convention destination on national and international levels. ACB continuously updates all information relevant to the organization of conventions and ensures the coordination of appropriate professional bodies required to sustain the satisfactory execution of a successful convention.
According to statistics prepared by Antalya Convention Bureau, 117 meetings, congresses and convention were held in Antalya in 2016.
Antalya is one of the most attractive destination for Event & Incentives. Antalya hosted 53 rd ICCA General Assembly in 2014 November. More than 900 delegates joined the 53 rd ICCA General Assembly.
Antalya is also proud to host the International Organization “EXPO 2016 Antalya“ and beside these major organizations Antalya is preferred destination for hundreds of medical congress.
Another important point that attracts attention of the participants are the historical and archaeological texture of Antalya.”
