Federation of Turkish Hoteliers (TUROFED) Vice President and President of ETIK; Mr. Mehmet İşler said, “Izmir tourism, which shrank in 2016 and 2017, recovered in 2018 and grew by 17 percent in 2019 compared to the previous year, continues to advance on its growth path. By welcoming a total of 1 million 975 thousand 187 visitors Izmir tourism set a new record,”.

Stating that the number of visitors coming to İzmir is approaching 2 million without cruise tourists, İşler added, “With the election of Mr. Tunç Soyer as the mayor of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, there is a vigorous activity. Mobility has taken the place of inertia in Izmir tourism. If it continues in this way, breaking new records in the number of tourist arrivals won’t be a surprise.”
