Travel Agent Appreciation

Turkish delight


The Turkish Office of Culture and Tourism, along with Turkish Airlines and Tursab (Association of Turkish Travel Agencies) recently hosted its first MICE FAM trip from Canada. Travelling from Toronto, the group visited Istanbul and Izmir. The seasoned group of meeting/event and incentive travel planners got to enjoy the sites, smells and tastes of Turkey and learned about ways to sell events in Turkey. They also took part in a workshop with Turkish MICE Suppliers and visited hotels and restaurants to better understand the service and quality levels available. Participants included Louise Barnard, Andy Steffens, Sharon Fleary, Selcuk Heybet, Veronica Fazio, May Lynne Fong, Darlene Paolucci, Nalina Williams, Margarite Karamitanis and Teresa Man.
