IMM is the Best of EMITT…

The 22nd East Mediterranean International Tourism and Travel Exhibition has opened at the Tüyap Fair Convention and Congress Center in Istanbul. It is to be held between Jan. 25th – 28th, 2018.

Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality's 'Istanbul' stand, which came first with its stand and was awarded as the 'Best Stand Reflecting Regional Presentation of EMITT 2018 '.

The best stand plaque of EMITT was delivered to Mr. Serdal Akyurt, the Tourism Director of IMM by EMITT Director Ms. Hacer Aydin on behalf of Mr. Mevlüt Uysal, the mayor of Istanbul.

EMITT is one of the top five travel and tourism exhibitions in the world and the leading event in Turkey and its region.

The East Mediterranean International Tourism and Travel exhibition – better known as EMITT – has been officially opened by a collection of high-profile speakers, before setting off as part of a VIP tour of the show floor.

Members of the party including Minister of Tourism and Culture Prof. Dr. Numan Kurtulmuş, former UNWTO head Taleb Rifai, Mayor of Istanbul Mevlüt Uysal and Governor Vasip Şahin, President of the Turkish Tourism Investors Association Oya Narin, President of TUROFED Osman Ayık, and President of the Federal Association of Germany’s Tourism Sector Michael Frenzel, and many more, spoke on where travel is today and where it will head in future ahead of a trip around the exhibition.

There’s a lot for them to see – EMITT is huge this year, with over 1,000 destinations, operators, service providers and many more showing what they have to offer to an enormous visitor base. Preliminary visitor registrations are already well above previous years – guaranteeing a bigger and better audience.

Many of these visitors have been especially invited to the show as part of the Hosted Buyer programme, where visitors are hosted at the event and helped to arrange a bespoke programme of meetings with the exhibitors they want to reach. Over 2,500 visitors applied to become hosted buyers, and 600 of these were approved to the programme – leading to more than 6,000 appointments being scheduled across the four days of EMITT.
