Summer in Turkey

September 2006


We began the summer season with our cruise groups from the United States. These small sized ships are able to dock at several unique ports along the Eastern coast of Turkey, such as Çanakkale, Dikilli, Kusadasi, Bodrum and finally Istanbul. Some of the fascinating landmarks the groups visit at these ports are the ancient cities of Pergamon, Ephesus, Pirene, Didyma and Miletus, not to mention the Ottoman and Byzantine landmarks in Istanbul such as the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.

Our Congress Department organized and executed the 31st FEBS 2006 Congress on Bio Chemistry with 2,300 participants. The congress took place in the Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Center or ICEC. The Congress Valley 4 & 5 Star Hotels were used. The opening ceremony staged the famous “Fire of Anatolia” Show, an incredible potpourri of folk dancing reflecting the Anatolian cultures and myths.

We were also delighted to enjoy the fruits of our new incentive market, Russia. Most of these incentive groups visited Istanbul which as an alternative to the Southern Mediterranean coastal city of Antalya. Our incentive department is now preparing the social programs of the EFIC Congress on Pain such as the Welcome Reception, the Gala Dinner and all transfers & tours. Expected number of participants for this Congress is 2,500.

Turkey has hosted the Formula 1 Grand Prix for the second time on August 25-27. The total number of people attending during the racing week is estimated to be around 240,000.
ODS Turkey has handled the ground operations such as transfers, accommodations and evening functions of some of the automobile and petroleum companies participating in the event.
