The meeting of continents and the very place where east meets west, Istanbul has never been more accessible. So what better place to hold an international congress? There are two international airports, with an ever-expanding network of flights. Hotel accommodation in the city is improving continuously with new luxury properties opening every day. There are presently in excess of 15,000 4-5 plus hotel rooms in Istanbul, that’s enough to host 25,000 delegates at any one time. The number and quality of conference and meetings venues outside Istanbul is also increasing and centers such as Antalya, Belek, Bodrum, Cappadocia and Ankara now provide attractive alternatives.
