News update from a little island on a WOW Destination…

February 2004


When being asked to write a short article for the EUROMIC newsletter, I personally thought panicking “help!”…

What could I say to all my colleagues all over the world in respect of my role as Director of Sales and Marketing for Europe for Omar’s Destination Services based in London?

Would it be right to say that we were affected by the terrorism attack that happened last November?
Would it be right to say that yes, we were.
Would it be right to say that business is coming back, especially ex UK and enquiries are coming in, I am so pleased to say.

The general view of the UK market specifically is that Turkey – and especially Istanbul – is such a WOW destination with such easy access that it ‘just works’. Especially when there are so many pan-European conferences and the flying time falls into that magic figure of within 3 to 4 hours.

The fact that this newsletter has such a huge audience, you would not think it right if I missed the chance to mention the magic date of MAY 15th.
This is going to be one of THE dates in the calendar for tourism to Istanbul.
Why, you might ask?
Well… Istanbul is hosting the EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, and yes, we at O.D.S. have a website dedicated to Eurovision – www.eurovision2004.org

Long on colleagues – it works and can work for you too!

All I can say, ‘dear friends’, please, if you are attending CONFEX in London between February 24 – 26th, try and pay us a visit on our stand.
We are exhibiting on stand Y460 with our colleagues from the Turkish Tourist Board. If you have time it would great to put a face to names, some of whom I know personally but those that I do not, join me for a few minutes and maybe sample some of the ‘delights of Turkey’.

Thanks a million, bye for now,
Janice
