Hosted Buyer Programme

Travel Turkey İzmir runs a Hosted Buyer Programme in partnership with Republic of Turkey Ministry of Economy and Turkish Airlines to invite and host senior-level travel industry buyers to develop new business with the exhibitors, build network and discover the Turkish tourism market. The programme includes buyers setting pre-appointments with exhibitors to lead to successful business deals while their travel expenses are compensated by the organizers. 
 
In 2016, 179 international buyers from 52 countries were hosted along with 518 international visitors resulting in a total of 7.160 B2B meetings held in a 1.200sqm VIP Lounge. The hosted buyers also attended a post-show tour where they visited Denizli, Pamukkale, Ephesus and House of Virgin Mary in order to discover the region’s tourism destinations.
